It’s about time I actually talked about a girl group since all I’ve been talking about is boy groups. Not that boy groups are boring, but it makes it more fun for me to talk about girl groups who have amazing concepts.

Oh My Girl recently came back with their third mini album named Pink Ocean and their title track Liar Liar. It’s a really cute song and the music video itself is sort of a bit confusing but aside from that, I really liked it.

Liar Liar is a song about a girl who’s very insecure about herself and doesn’t think the boy she likes actually likes her back. There are times where she feels very confident but still very self-conscious at the same time.

The boy may or may not like her back, yet he usually reassures her that he does, but whenever a pretty girl greets him, he says “she’s just a friend” in which she doesn’t believe him so she calls him a liar and continues to think it’s a one-sided love.

In the music video, all the girls are in love with the exact same boy. They each have a photo of him but they hide it from each other in fear of them knowing and there are times where they almost get caught.

In case you’re wondering – because I wondered as well when I first saw the video – the boy in the photos that they each have is Gongchan, a member of B1A4.

Now, finally aside the song, Oh My Girl (aka OH! MYGIRL or OMG) is an eight-member group who are under WM Entertainment.

Their names are Hyojung, Mimi, Jiho, Seunghee, JinE, Binnie, YooA, and Arin. Of course, these are stage names.

With all the other girl groups that I like, Oh My Girl is my absolute favorite girl group. The outfits on stage, the music, the choreography, and their vocals alone make them such a great group.

I came to know Oh My Girl from YooA, Seunghee and Hyojung’s cover of Halo by Beyonce along with the group’s dance practice for OCAD’s “Muse”.

Oh My Girl always work hard on their vocals and dances. I was really surprised when I heard YooA, Seunghee and Hyojung’s cover of Halo, which I shouldn’t have been since that is what you should expect from them, but me, not knowing who they were at all at the time, I was very impressed.

I know for sure that they’ll continue to get bigger and become more successful in the future for more and more people are finding out who they are and knowing that they are worth the hype in the Korean music industry.
