Girl group AOA's most anticipated comeback with the double title tracks "Bing Bing" and "Excuse Me" has not been received well by the fans. Though the hype surrounding the comeback was sky high, netizens have been sending negative reviews ever since the release of the albums.

This has led to speculation that the band is on its ways to extinction. This is despite the team's effort of promoting the album with a string of comeback performances on Mnet's M Countdown, KBS' Music Bank, MBC's Show! Music Core, and SBS' Inkigayo.

The two tracks are part of their New Year release Angel's Knock, which also featured the Korean versions of AOA's previous Japanese singles, "Give Me the Love" and "Oh Boy." "Excuse Me" is a retro-style dance track with intense beats while "Bing Bing" is a jazz-influenced dance-pop number.

"AOA's new release is really bad.... Total flop...", "Their new song is seriously terrible. And who made the choreography? What happened with this album?", "The raps are annoying again, especially in 'Bing Bing'", "Cosmic Girls even beat AOA..", and more," AllKPop quoted the Netizens.

Unfortunately, AOA's last hit was "Heart Attack" in 20015. The report further stated: "With their continuously "terrible" releases, netizens don't think they will last long in the industry, with just one member doing well. Overall, k-nets think AOA is most likely going downhill from now on if they persist without improvements."

Fans are not happy with the fact that Seolhyun is being given more preference with lots of solo promotions and other activities, while the other members are always sidelined.

The FNC Entertainment eight-member girl group consists of Choa, Jimin, Yuna, Hyejeong, Mina, Seolhyun, Chanmi, and Youkyung. Ace of Angels or better known as AOA made their debut with "M! Countdown" in 2012. Currently, the band is promoting as a seven-member idol girl group without Youkyung.

With a series of flops and bad choices, it looks like AOA will have a tough year ahead. Tell us what you think of AOA's new singles! Comment your opinions!
