Itzy is one of the girl groups that I really like. I find that, musically speaking, they are quite solid. Their mini album are quite good, with quite varied titles. I think they represent well this new generation of KPOP who want to impose respect with their art. I really liked that they started with songs like Dalla Dalla , Icy or Wannaba , which is about being yourself. It's really an important message and the fact that artists do it is touching.
