I.O.I’s (아이오아이) new sub-unit has finally released their first single, “Whatta Man” :)
As promised, YMC Entertainment dropped the music video for the group’s new track at midnight (KST) on Tuesday (9th August).
“Whatta Man” was rearranged and composed by Ryan Jhun, who also wrote EXO’s “Love Me Right” and Red Velvet’s “Dumb Dumb”. The song is actually a Korean cover of Linda Lyndell’s hit song “What A Man!” (1968). It was also revealed that member Chungha was involved in the choreography for their new song.
The music video starts off with lead rapper Choi Yoo Jung meeting her crush in a cafe while the other members pretend to be customers. Her crush, who has no interest in her, ignores her most of the time. Throughout the music video, the girls helped Yoo Jung to change her look to woo her man. The clip also features the girls’ powerful choreography and charismatic stage presence.
Watch the sexy music video for “Whatta Man” below:
The new 7-member sub-unit consists of Kim Do Yeon, Kim So Hye, Kim Chung Ha, Im Na Young, Jeon So Mi, Choi Yoo Jung, and Chinese member Pinky.
