f(x)’s "Pinocchio (Danger)” Finally Unveiled : Review


The girls of f(x) – Victoria, Krystal, Sulli, Amber, and Luna – released their new song Pinocchio (Danger) at midnight today April 18th. Their new song was definitely very f(x)ish to say the least. The lyrics were very complex like an intricate puzzle; and at times they were reminiscent of Pinocchio the Puppet’s arms and legs and how they would fly all over the place.

With the exception of a few, the lyrics in general were very hard to understand. It had a few catchy easy-to-sing-along phrases like “jing jing wing wing,” “dda ra dda rad da dda dda,” and “dda dda dda,” but that was about it.

The song then makes a random shift to bakery lyrics using words like macaroons and pastries. It contained phrases like “I’ll open and crumble it piece by piece, and I’ll re-bake the ones I like.” While the melodies and rhythms are very catchy and cute; once you take apart the lyrics, you’ll realize how creepy they are. Nevertheless, their sound, rhythm, lyrics, and beats are definitely original and experimental making them that much more addicting. f(x) will release their full album on April 20th.
