  • “Excuse me? The high notes, deep voice, choreography, visuals, and song! The masterpiece!”
  • “It blows my mind how people still sleep on ONF they are amazing and always give us bangers.”
  • “ONF is the king of instrumentals. It’s so rare to see K-pop boy groups do different things and mostly just follow the trend sound. ONF deserves more fame.”
  • “I’ve always loved ONF’s music, but the orchestral synths here are so beautiful. Giving strong GFRIEND vibes.”
  • “ONF always does something unique and interesting. They don’t follow trends, they just give us ONF. This is a great track, and the chorus was totally unexpected!”

  • “Wow, this was freaking good.”
  • “Mom this is K-pop.”
  • “I’m not a fan but ONF songs are so my type, I always look forward to their comeback.”
  • “The song is good, and I bet it’ll hit big among international KPOP listeners too. It’s the style of song that will do good on Spotify.”
  • “This song is so good. I’ve been on theqoo for years and I haven’t left any comments until now. It feels like the continuation of We Must Love.”
  • “Ha Hwang Hyun seriously. You’re the one making my heart beat.”
  • “I hope this group keeps releasing songs, it’s the type of group that releases new songs and will make me keep listening to them.”

The song scratches that itch of late 2nd gen to early 3rd gen BGs like Infinite and B2ST right down from the dramatic flair of strings to the song structure,” a netizen stated. “It’s good it’s nice that finally someone is bringing it back.”
