This song was mainly performed by DBSK, but label-mates TRAX and BoA also performed in the song and on live stages.
I swear this song inspired Super Junior’s Don’t Don on some level. It has the exact same message and feel~ which isn’t a bad thing! The song is about how people have become so hard-hearted and cold that they no longer care for one another and the world is falling apart because of it. It isn’t about living through the pain, like Don’t Don, but it is about loosing hope and just begging things to return to the way they were.
“Hardened hearts cause tears of blood/ Now what do I have to motivate myself?/ Like the existence of the beautiful things in life/ The hopes in our hearts for the future are dead”
You don’t get to see too much of it, which is why I took a point off. DBSK is supposed to be a dance group, but for some reason in a lot of their MVs they just stand still and you don’t get to see much of the actual group dance. What is there, however, is brilliant and perfectly together.
I’m kind of wavering on what to put for the story rating here. There is a story in the lyrics, that is usually the case, but I’m not sure if there is a story in the MV. You see each group inside this same floating building, with BoA being an angel (I think) and TRAX being in the basement (maybe they are supposed to be in hell~). I think this could represent that DBSK (who sing most of the song) are on earth caught between the rising devils of TRAX and the sinking angel that is BoA? If so, it is a good story, but they need to make it clearer. I’m thinking this through as I type, so if something doesn’t make sense, that’s why ^^. If there is no story just pretend there is a big NA where the rating is.
Other Interesting Things
This MV was filmed middle of winter. In the behind the scenes you see the DBSK members (who are all wearing very little clothing) huddling together to stay warm or over stage lights. Since most of them are wearing thin very thin clothing, and one has thick metal bands on his fingers, I feel sorry for them!
