VIXX returned at as it hit midnight in South Korea, and are already taking over multiple spots of the realtime charts with three out of four tracks from their new special single album Boys’ Record.
Title track 이별공식 Love Equation currently sits at #1 on the MelOn realtime chart, at least temporarily moving Naul from his three week strong hold in the position.
Kpop is currently filled with nostalgia for the first generation, given the return of acts such as g.o.d, S, Shinhwa and eventually JinuSean.
In similarly nostalgic fashion VIXX’s return track, Love Equation, is the remake of a 90s R.ef track 알이에프 Farewell Formula.
VIXX’s remake not only pays homage to the 90s dance group in sound and choreography but also in visual style.
The group take on a uniformed look, popular in first generation Kpop styling, that even includes oversized clothing.
Known for their strong concept based visual Love Equation is a new image for VIXX. This time their conceptual image is far more subtle though highly effective.
