    After Plan C got out of the picture, you can't expect the same but would be nice for something along their standards or perhaps even better.

    still very nice looking MV, me like it.

    Yup usually for their mall shows they only send 8 girls to perform. Sometimes just 5 like in Igai ni Mango promotions. The blockings were probably a mess because they haven't practiced the 8 member formation that much.

    I think just like for last single, the B-side that gets the MV won't be performed in mall shows, since that song will have its own promotion cycle.

    Just watched the new MV.
    There’s still some improvements that I want to point out but at least the MV quality hasn’t gone back to the Fortune Cookie days lol.

    If there’s one thing that I find really off (and comedic) is the extreme facial zooming at the chorus lol. The first part of the song was just right. Like in Sheki and Jamie’s part, the zooming should have stayed in that distance.

    The audio has improved so much! I hope they stick to that from now on.

    Aly is such a kawaii center. I just wish she emphasised opening her mouth in some part and a bit more energy so I can feel that she’s actually singing (eg Sheki, Jamie, Abby and Ash’s they’ve done really well)

    Extreme facial zooming? Must be influenced by Filipino TV Series like Probinsyano and Kadenang Ginto. lol

    Some food businesses are now bringing and selling street foods to the malls without the sanitation worries. You can also actually buy clean packed fishballs at most groceries and supermarkets.

    ..and where most of the girls are from, I'm sure it's normal for them even if they got the actual streetfood. It's part of the culture.

    They got sponsored by Eggspert (it's in the credits), which is a food stall located in malls selling street foods especially quail eggs. During the shoot, they haven't eaten lunch yet so the girls ate the food instead of pausing after the camera has panned to the next group.

    I saw someone on Twitter say that MNL's costumes may have been inspired by barong, now the more I look at it the more I see it.

    Yup the embroidered details show when the photo isn't overexposed or they're not posing in front of a white background. I just wish they still have time to change the cover art of the single to at least have the colorful background that they used in their cover photo for their facebook page. It looks better that way instead of the white one.

    BTW for international fans that want their CDs and goods hit me up here: https://twitter.com/AirMnlove

    Nice. It looks like this is the surprise they are talking about except Coslandia needs to announce and release this now or perhaps besides this one there's still the 500K goal reached IAM MV surprise, if they are still pushing for that..

    So the 5th single IS the theme for Coslandia 2019, huh? Interesting.

    Wonder what it could be? Hebirote? A newer song? An original song? With this hype, I'm not really sure lol

    Outstanding. I noticed some parts were used during the AsiaFes 2019 Press Conference when introducing the 8 Members.

    While that was happening, some fans criticized Kyla on twitter/socmedia and made her apologize for a homophobic remark or reaction on the last Interactive Live episode (Ep. 60).

    UPDATE: That is now a false alarm as reported later today.
