    Rocket Punch released Red Punch on February 10th.
    Cherry Bullet released Hands Up on February 11th.

    Rocket Punch will release Blue Punch on August 4th.
    Cherry Bullet will release Aloha Oe on August 6th.

    I can't help but consider them as direct rivals from this point onwards. It would have been a bit funny if Everglow released something as well now because the three of them are the post-PD48 girl groups. You can't really count IZ*ONE in the same batch haha

    Everglow is due for a comeback... They and Rocket Punch have had releases within two weeks of each other since Bim Bam Bum/Adios. And Cherrry Bullet and Everglow had their own little pattern going too, 2 months between Q&A - Bon Bon Chocolat - Really Really, then Adios was late by a month and CB got nothing for almost 9 months. Everglow better be on time this time around![hehe]

    It's not just those groups, 2 of the 3 monster 4th gen idol groups, G-Idle and Itzy (the 3rd being IZ*ONE) are set to make their comebacks near those dates too.

    I counted stuff that was 6 days or less as "close" so that'd be RCPC and CB in February and now GI, RCPC and CB in August. Pink Punch and Hush were released fairly close (12 days), and Reminiscence was also just a week earlier than Red Punch and Hands Up. I think it'll take more releases to actually see a pattern, but so far, RCPC and CB seem the most like direct rivals to me.

    That was probably because they had to re-arrange stuff with members leaving. I wonder if they're ever gonna go back to releasing proper stuff. Hands Up and Aloha Oe are both just digital singles.

    My gosh! It's such a WONDERFUL Summer Album! OMG! How am I supposed to choose which one to play on repeat?

    For the Off/On-Topic (G)-IDLE and Dreamcatcher are dropping their August comebacks on the same day

    Rocket Punch, Cherry Bullet, Everglow and Itzy all sit around 6 months on average between releases so the moment they "synch up" we get this pattern of them all promoting at the same time.
    Everglow is the most prolific with <6 months between their releases up until now, RCPC deviates the least, and CB manages to stick around 6 months because they'd done a few digital singles instead of minis. Itzy has kept pace with Everglow, except they had >7 months between Icy and Wannabe. Luckily for these groups (G)I-dle is faster than all of them so next comeback they at least won't have to face them... as long as nothing changes.

    It's definitely a cute song, but, what happened with Juri? She had a TON of lines in the Debut Title Track, but we're two comebacks in and she's got a lot less lines. Or am I just tripping? o_O

    I thought the exact same! It made me sad. I guess it can't be helped, since she isn't fluent and now the other girls are gaining more fans. I suppose it was a good move to show a lot from Juri in the debut to attract attention but now they don't need that as much. It's sad :/

    I'm assuming it's mostly something to do with singing ability, I don't know how their producers choose but most k-pop producers seem to pick whoever sounds the best singing a line, both the vocals themselves and the delivery. Juri sings well but her voice is more warm and calming and lower than the others. Yeonhee got a lot of good lines and she has a much higher, brighter voice. So I think it's mostly an issue of fit.

    There are line distributions out on YouTube already, Juri actually is #4 in lines because she has a lot of the more subtle lines (the first ju-ju-ju-ju-juice, a few words before Sohee's first line, that da-da-da-da-da that is repeated throughout the song) but Yeonhee (who is #5) stands out more since she got more solo parts and the bridge. As for the others, Yunkyoung is #1, Suyun #2, Dahyun #3 and Sohee #6.

    Juri is dead last in solo/focus screentime though, I'm assuming it's because she has fewer standout-lines and thus less opportunity for it :/

    But, those aren't even cohesive lines? Background noises are just that: background noises. Sigh. Hopefully, one day, she'll have more decent line distribution again. For now, like I said, it's not a bad song at all.

    Right, but she's not silent. She's still singing something. I did notice all of her proper lines come at the end of the song, so you end up going a bit "huh? Where's Juri?" until then.

    I do want her to get more lines. Hopefully they make good use of her voice if/when they do more mature songs (Dahyun said she wanted to, when she's older :^^;:).
