Review

ILY:1 is a girl group whose membership consists of contestants from the Girls Planet 999 idol survival program and two trainees from FC ENM who did not appear on the show. They made their debut with the single Love In Bloom in March 2022, followed by Que Sera Sera in June 2022.

Those first two releases showcased ILY:1 as a group that excels at doing extremely girly pop. Their third release, A Dream of ILY:1, does not stray too far from that base. They sound like they are doubling down on injecting as much fairy dust in your ears as possible.

While that may not be the greatest thing to hear if you like banging beats, it will probably be heavenly for those who like the saccharine side of pop music.

If sugary pop is not your thing, give the first two tracks on this single (Twinkle, Twinkle and Secret Recipe) a try to see if they catch your attention.

If those songs don’t entice you, think of it in these terms. The sound ILY:1 are rocking currently is a reminder of a lot of early Oh My Girl and Lovelyz. So if that is your girl group groove, give these ladies a shot.
