Holy shit, that's pretty cool. I was never a fan of Fin.K.L, but I dig seeing the trail-blazers reunite like this. When I got into Kpop, Fin.K.L, S.E.S and Baby V.O.X were the girl groups still in their primes. BV was my favorite of those groups, and is still my all-time favorite Kpop group. I really tried to get into Fin.K.L, but it just never happened.

I forgot Fin.K.L. was a DSP group. Sad how the company hasn't really had a successful girl group after Fin.K.L. and Kara were among the top in their days.

Thanks for exposing me to PinkFantasy, because I haven't followed KPop for years now. I can totally see the H!P influence in the music and arrangement of "Fantasy", although not so much in "Iriwa", which is the single they were promoting in that interview. I love both songs, though, and the PinkFantasy SHY song, too. This group feels like a concerted effort to channel 2nd wave Kpop without completely aping it. Lord knows they aren't aping the dancing skills! (Seriously, have dancing skills fallen off across the board in KPop, or is it just that the bits I've seen here and there the past five years or so make it seem that way?)
Anyway, I'm intrigued. If MyDoll can manage to give them more than one release per year I might become a fan.

Oh and ETA Loona’s Butterfly is one of the best choreos I’ve seen.

I did not go to Mina’s Instagram but apparently there’s self harm things posted and her agency said they were going o her house to check on her.
Also worth noting that former member Choa, who left a few years ago due to mental health issues, supposedly follows every AOA member except Jimin.
