NCT 127 released a music video for ‘gimme gimme’

In the weeks leading up to Loveholic, NCT 127 released “First Love” as a pre-release single. The K-pop group followed this by releasing a music video for “gimme gimme” just days before Loveholic drops.

The music video was released at 6 p.m. KST on Feb. 15 on the band’s official YouTube channel. A hip-hop track, the members sing of the addicting nature of love.

The song features elements that make it a classic NCT 127 track: flawless vocals, seamless choreography, killer visuals, and heavy hip-hop beats. Still, “gimme gimme” manages to subvert expectations with its slowed-down tempo.

Taeyong returned for the comeback

NCT 127 put on a “Beyond Live” concert on Dec. 27, 2020. Before the concert was held, SM Entertainment announced that Taeyong would be taking a break from the group due to an injury.

The label released a statement about Taeyong’s injury on Dec. 24, 2020, and according to Soompi the statement said:

“Hello.

This is SM Entertainment.

We ask for the understanding of fans.

Member Taeyong’s herniated disk in his lower back has relapsed, so he will inevitably be absent from all scheduled activities including the Beyond LIVE – NCT : RESONANCE [Global Wave].

We ask for the generous understanding of fans, and we will do our best for Taeyong’s treatment so he can fully focus on recovering his health.

Thank you.”

After an extended break from the group’s activities, Taeyong returned for the “gimme gimme” music video and the band’s promotions for Loveholic.
