  • “Heya is an extreme bop.”
  • “Not even talking about the song because it’s so good, but the MV? The concept is so beautiful!”
  • “I want to see the MV over and over again because of how creative and pretty the concept is, I wish it was a movie, to be honest.”
  • “I feel like everyone shined in this mv and it’s not just Wonyoung taking up the screen! I love Leeseo as a rapper and Liz’s beautiful voice. Rei is so pretty.”
  • “I love how Starship starts to give Liz more lines, ‘coz gurl she literally deserves it! This song really suits her!”
  • “The thing about being a DIVE is that you’re never disappointed in any comeback.”
  • “It’s so refreshing to see a song over three minutes long with an actual chorus. The reputation within the song fits perfectly and is not overplayed.”
