The more I listen to this song, the more I love it:
Oh my God. Talk about a solid song. The singing is just beautiful. It is so strong, but at the same time also has a vulnerability that only the most skillful of singers can pull off. The piano goes along with the tune of the lyrics so well. Through the different verses with changing paces, the song tells a story, even if you can’t understand the lyrics (like me). I can’t find a single thing to complain about. Great job, SunnyHill.
Like most video, this one has its strong and weak points. I really like the concept of each member walking through the door at the start of her part in the song. It connects the actual video to the song perfectly and gives us something interesting to look at. The actual room they walk through conveys the lonely feeling really well. They are walking through these rooms, looking at a beautiful scene, but there is a sense of isolation from the beauty, like they can only walk past the beauty, but not be part of it. I also like the end when all of the members are sitting together. While they are all there, they are isolated from each other, sitting on different blocks. Again, beauty and relationships around them, but they are isolated.
Halfway through the video however, they stop with the walking and just show clips of their sad faces. It is okay, but not nearly as impressive as a video with a storyline that is carried throughout the whole video.
Okay, seriously. What is with girls wearing shirts with no pants? Two of the girls are wearing just sweaters and nothing else, and one of the girls is wearing a dress that is way too short to be considered a dress. Only one of the four girls is actually wearing a sweater and pants. All of the tops and shoes are really cute, but why are girls in k-pop suddenly becoming allergic to bottoms? Not classy. The guy’s suit was good, but obviously it wasn’t the main attraction in this video. I’m really getting disappointed more often than impressed when it comes to wardrobe in these music videos.
Overall, it is an okay comeback. The song is amazing. The video unfortunately is pretty empty. I’m still waiting for them to come out with a video that matches their amazing “The Grasshopper Song.”
