Raging hot girl group EXID made a recent comeback with “Hot Pink” which many fans dub as the third “Up & Down” for its catchy groove.
However, it seems that not all netizens are impressed with the return as a recent post on the online forum Pann has put various scenes from the music video under a lens of scrutiny, calling out the track for its prostitution concept.
The track achieved explosive popularity, blasting through to a number one spot on the music charts upon release. While GIFs of Hani from the music video has also gone viral, the girls have expressed their humble personalities while they became teary eyed reading a letter from their manager at their fan meeting for the recent comeback.

In the photo, “PINK OIL” can be seen which was initially blurred in the music video. This is a euphemism for “pink nipples.”
Aside from these specific scenes, the poster summarized that there are various sexual connotations in the symbolism of the ticket, oil-hole, lubricator, side brake, tabs, sticky oil, police batons, and more. Furthermore, the “massage room” and “ear clean room” are notorious indirect forms of prostitution. Finally, the repetition of the lyric “push” can also be interpreted as an underage euphemism for “pussy.”
