I’m in the middle of so much even at this second, but I can certainly take a two minute break to talk about Lee Hyori’s new MV, “Swing”!
OHHHH goodness. I have been so so excited about Hyori’s comeback so watching this made me very happy. But after actually seeing it, it was more of a “THIS IS SO EXCITING!” happy rather than “THIS VIDEO MAKES ME HAPPY!”
The video was quite sad and depressing. I’m really surprised. I have a feeling Hyori’s next single will be more upbeat, but I kind of like this. It’s slow and melancholy, but you can’t say it’s a ballad either. It’s something new from Hyori, and I like it. It shows her range in that she can be cute/sexy but she can also be this as well.
OH, and I know; there is an elephant in the room: the CLOWN! Do. not. want. I get that it’s symbolic and it’s not supposed to be funny, but dang clowns freak me out. Don’t they scare everyone a bit? How did anyone ever think they were great? I think it was intentionally eerie, though. It worked well. I was especially spooked when he/she hit the mirror. D:
I was super into Hyori’s styling. OMG. Lovelovelove. I didn’t like the wig, but everything else was ah-maaazing.
My two minutes are up, but I want to know what you think. Do you feel this is a bad direction for Hyori? Or is it nice to have something different?
