Mini Review of Jung Ilhoon’s ‘She’s Gone’ MV

She’s Gone is the title track of the solo debut album titled, ‘Big Wave’ released by BTOB’s Jung Ilhoon. The song is about Ilhoon’s girlfriend who leaves him perhaps for another guy? But he says that’s he’s alright with it, that he’s going to endure the pain anyway and live his life to the fullest now instead of mopping over her. He also tells that she’s evil and that he’s now set free from the prison he was living in. He alleviates himself by saying that he escaped himself because she had messed up herself. The song has a combined feeling of love and animosity and he can’t help feeling that way now that she’s gone. Nevertheless, he tells her to live well, to not regret her decision, to take care of her herself and with a final goodbye, he tells her that he loves her.

This song and MV could’ve gone slow and tragic but since our Ilhoon is a rapper, he’s not going to make us cry. Instead, he induced it with an up-beat, country-rock concord that just makes your head bob to the rhythm and forget that it’s an unhappy song of a lover boy. In the video, Ilhoon is seen being carefree and enjoying his time with his friends showing that he has already gotten over her. We see no tears or breaking of the walls or a dark cloud hanging above his head, but we do see the breaking of a beer bottle and that’s only natural, isn’t it? He also shows his frustration by playing shooting games in an arcade.

I liked Ilhoon’s style, attitude and his insouciant vibe. As the song slowly comes to an end, there’s the clapping of the hands as if it was an anthem. An anthem for all those who lose their girls like him. A goodbye anthem you could say.

I liked the MV because of its dark rooms and alleys, smoking gas, awesome background dancers and our very own Ilhoon being Ilhoon. It’s a song that just lifts even the most dejected man. The perfect song that can be listened to when you’ve just broke up.

Mini Review of Camila Cabello’s ‘Never Be the Same’ MV

I heard this song a few weeks ago and I totally love it and seeing that Camila released an official video of it, I got hyped up and running. It’s absolutely my type of song because it speaks of a painful, difficult kind of love. A one-sided love but not really one sided.

The music video is a montage of recorded footages of a lazy-in-bed style Camila in a hotel room. She is seen wearing couture in aesthetic and professional environments. She has this messy hair and slightly exhausted look that really allures the viewers gazes. Her voice is beautiful; her high and low tones gave us the meaning she was trying to convey of pain and desperation. The beats of the drums give a strong vibe and the mid-tempo and R&B rhythms make this song a hit to the ears; It just sticks there in your mind like art.

I can’t help but feel that Camila and Selena have much in common; perhaps its their style of music or the aspects that makes me want to compare.

Mini Review of MAMAMOO’s Starry Night MV

I love MAMAMOO and every time I find out that they have released a music video, I get completely overwhelmed because their music is always so diverse and catchy. This one is no exception. MAMAMOO released two music videos titled, ‘Starry Night’ and ‘Star Wind Flower Sun’ both of which are a must listen to! The song speaks about a broken and faded relationship. Before the fall of the cupid, the couples spent time under the starry night but as the months passed and as they looked upon the starry night again, she recalls the memories, the time they spent together under that same night sky and she is troubled by it because no matter how months have passed, how many seasons has rushed past her, she can’t get him out of his head.

I love the theme and the concept the girls produced. It’s utterly touching and it kind of sticks with you for a while. The girls look so beautiful and dreamy and for me, I’ve once more fallen in love with Solar and her Celtic hair.

The MV begins with a pleasant guitar melody and finger snaps and I can’t help but wonder where I’ve heard that tune before…Their voices are so pleasing, and their harmonization makes the song ever more alluring. The sceneries have caught my eye the most because what I truly love in MV’s is the background more than the foreground. Their choreography is simple, yet it evidently brings out the charm in them. The video also gives me a fairy tale vibe from time to time because of the vistas they have shown. As the MV sadly comes to an end, they give us this aesthetic feeling that really lifts my spirits up!

I loved the video and everything about it; the theme, the landscapes, the lyrics and no doubt, the four gorgeous looking idols. I would say that this song is the perfect spring song that we’ve all been wanting.

Mini Review of MAMAMOO ‘Star Wind Flower Sun’ MV

Unlike Starry Sky that talks about a shattered relationship, this song is a confession to him. She tells him that he’s the Star Wind Flower and Sun to her life, that the memories they share make her smile at her weak times. But there’s also a conflict whether the boy really likes her or not, nonetheless, she composes this song as her confession of love. She tries to tell her feelings through this song.

The euphony directly touches my heart. The MV begins with a recording of them merrily singing this song on a beach and at the intervals, the recorded videos of them just having a good time are shown to display a sort of meaning relating to the song. Most of the time, they sing while walking on the beach with no truer expression than to confess. Their voices reach the depths of my soul and the aria calmed me down a little. The tune itself helps us forget everything for a while and just listen to the beautiful vocalizations.

I have realized that watching the MV kind of makes you smile a little. It’s those little things that make this MV catching. At the end of the MV, they all cheerfully run to the ocean because they finally conveyed the message they truly wanted to share. It’s the relief and the happiness at the end that’s important after you make the confession.

Although I loved Starry Night more, this song takes me in a state where I could peacefully sleep. MAMAMOO has done a really good job of composing such great music for their Moo Moo’s.

“You are my Star Wind Flower Sun”
