RedVelvet's success is not attained over night. They were looked down upon in the past. But the tables are turned now. RedVelvet has once again proved their talent and achieved success through hard work and dedication alone.

The girl group debuted with dual concept which was never done by any other kpop girl group before. The "red" represents the youthful, energetic, brighter and strong side of the group, while the "Velvet" represents the softer, more mature and elegant side of the group. In the words of music, the "Red" predominantly features pop genre and "Velvet" features R&B and ballad genres.

As per Wikipedia sources "KookMin Ilbo noted that their music isn't as simple as being "dance" vs "ballad" and are often mixed with other elements. Their debut single "Happiness" which was considered as their first song under the "red" concept, is an urban Europop song fused with an intense synth sound and an African music beat. Their second single "Be Natural" saw a completely different image of the group and is described as classic R&B, which embodies their "velvet" side."

And that is why RedVelvet is called as the most versatile Kpop group ever.

Congratulations to RedVelvet on the grand comeback and wishing you more success in the future.
