The Year in Review, Day 3
It’s the third day of a 23-day celebration, revisiting some of 2023’s best podcast episodes and writing! Today’s theme: tripleS!
Here is my tripleS EVOLution press conference recap!
The press conference ended with each member answering this question: “Since your album's title refers to a diamond, what is a specific trait or skill that each of you have that makes you shine the brightest?” Here is how they responded:
YooYeon: “[I]t is my determination and passion that shines through.”
SooMin: “During the process of perfecting our performance, the fact that we help one another is what makes us shine the brightest.”
Kotone: “I think the fact that we all respect one another is what makes us shine.”
NaKyoung: “Trusting one another and the energy that we share is the driving force of our group.”
YeonJi: “I think what makes us shine is… enjoying the stage and the performance[s].”
ChaeYeon: “What truly shines and holds value is the confidence all [of the] members have… in our team and in our shared pursuit of our dreams as we move forward.”
Mayu: “I think it is [our] teamwork. We are always shining bright when all eight of us are together.”
JiWoo: “While each member shines individually… it's our fans who make us shine the brightest.”
And here is my analysis of a tripleS LOVElution music video!
“In tripleS’s ‘Girls’ Capitalism’ music video, they play the role of ‘Mad Money Club For Sad Girls’ members and act out both examples and counterexamples of following a list of rules for life. The mix of rule-following and lack thereof makes for a nuanced critique of materialism that parallels the Barbie movie’s social commentary.”
