This MV is more like a mini film with the expert directing and effects, and the sets are AMAZING!
I can’t get enough of this song. The lyrics are, in abstract, about the struggle for his man to attract the girl and get her to love him. Directly though they tell the story like they are describing a boxing match. Even though it was not requested I am going to be posting the full lyrics and I suggest you check them out. It talks about the bell sounding and each of them sizing up the other, it’s really unique and cool!
“Love’s main show/ battle wits and valor/ you have hands too/ but you hold them and shy away/ keeping me in suspense/ don’t suppress yourself too long/ a confession doesn’t have to be the finale/ I won’t mind, just let me handle these little things”
Show Luo was, until recently, the “Dancing King of Asia” (in this years poll he came in second under former Super Junior member Hangeng). The dance for the MV is extremely impressive, it is quick and locks together. I particularly love the guitar movement. For a soloist this is my favorite dance. The backup dancers do not distract from Show Luo and everyone is perfectly in time.
To be honest it doesn’t relate back to the song at the beginning or end, the high points of the MV’s special effects. It starts out like a film, with a museum at night. A statue is in the corner, and as the clock strikes midnight it begins to move. The statue smashes itself, revealing Show Luo inside. Next we see the theatre, where most of the dancing takes place (there are some shots back on the storage room which might be the backstage of an old theatre, I can’t tell). At the end of the MV the clock strikes again and Shou Luo turns back into the statue which is standing center stage.
Other Interesting Things
I absolutely love Show Luo’s red costume. It is a bright red suit, but the right arm is cut differently so the fabric hangs as though it were a short cape. I like it! The blue costume though doesn’t fit, it looks like a space man in some old show, and the sunglasses are kind of odd…
I believe this is one of the MVs filmed in a 10 day period in New York. The theatre they filmed in is a big old venue, and it looks absolutely beautiful. Setting the MV there was probably the best call made.
