Lovelyz released their third album of 2017, and third mini album overall, entitled Fall in Lovelyz, on November 14th. The concept and style are more mature rather than bubbly compared to previous comebacks, but it still has that Lovelyz charm and matches well with the changing fall-to-winter season.
I pre-ordered this album with a folded poster from Ktown4u and it arrived on November 27th, in 4 layers of bubblewrap inside a cardboard box. The album came in almost perfect condition except for one corner that arrived bent in.
Sadly the damaged album corner also damaged my poster, puncturing through Jin's arm...this is the first time I received a damaged poster from Ktown4u.
This is how the poster looks after I tried straightening out the ripped area. Despite receiving the poster damaged, I will still continue ordering from Ktown4u as I see this as a one-off instance.
The front cover is glossy, so be careful of fingerprints.
The spine and back cover are matte. The backside is very elegant with its ornate, embossed gloss overlay.
The photobook contains photos from 3 different photoshoots. I'll refer to the first photoshoot with the lacy red outfits as the album cover photoshoot. The second photoshoot, as pictured below, is what I'll call the pink photoshoot. The last photoshoot, like in the photobook cover, I'll label as the black photoshoot.
This album contains 7 tracks:
- Spotlight (intro track)
- 종소리 / Twinkle (title track)
- 삼각형 / Triangle
- 그냥 / Just
- 비밀공원 / Secret Garden
- 졸린 꿈 / Sleepy Dreams
I'm really happy that Lovelyz obtained their second win of all time with "Twinkle" on The Show! It is a really beautiful song though I was taken aback hearing Jiae, Jisoo, and Yein's overly girly line in the title track. (I'm referring to similar lines of Jiae like in "비밀여행 / Secret Journey" and "놀이공원 / Amusement Park"). My favorite tracks are definitely "Triangle", "Just", and "Sleepy Dreams".
I'm so happy that Lovelyz was able to come back in the latter half of 2017 and with another win. I only wish the best for these girls and hope they'll have an even better 2018!
