This is the second (and last) MV by Super Junior H (I know, “Victory Korea” is basically Super Junior H, but it was released as Super Junior). This is the song that SJH promoted the most from their “Cooking? Cooking!” album.
The song is about planning a pajama party with the girl they love. The lyrics sound suspicious, as any coed pajama party would, but it isn’t necessarily. The song acknowledges this by saying “There might be a time when some sly thoughts sneak in/ don’t worry girl, my love is pure”. It is overall an innocent song about having fun.
“Wearing our pajamas/ wearing our pajamas/ tonight together/ let’s throw an awesome party/ just the two of us/ with much energy let’s play/ like they do in the movies/ let’s also have a pillow fight/ like the color of snow/ inside a white pillow world/ with much energy let’s enjoy ourselves”
The dance for this is well known. It is cute, but bouncy. One movement was known to cause trouble: the arm swing where they bring their hands up to their chin and wave them from side to side. This was an issue in a live performance during the time where they walk forwards, as member Shindong accidentally nailed leader Leeteuk in the jaw with his elbow.
There is a story with his MV. It is partially animated, like with “Cooking? Cooking!”. Initially it is set up as a scary comic book in which a girls sleepover is ruined by a gorilla who attacks. The girls flee and the next panel in the comic book switches to live images. The idea is that the boys were also having a party and the girls ran in to hide. Since they were all trapped they started goofing off and playing games. Eventually they realize the gorilla just wanted bananas and it goes away. I know, it makes almost no sense, but that is SJH for you.
Other Interesting Things
I like the more informal group shots where they sing and make fun of the choreography. It’s silly and works very well.
The comic book setup works really well with a silly MV like this, I like it a lot.
Nice product placement by SM Entertainment there! In the background of some of the solo shots you see a poster on the wall that says “Everysing”. That is a shop/cafe/karaoke/press conference/audition complex owned by SM Entertainment. They use it for a lot of the shots in this MV.
As I said with “Cooking? Cooking!” there is a strange effect when you watch the two MVs together. There is not a common storyline, so they don’t form a movie or anything like that, but by the end of the second MV you will most likely be giggling. I played Mad Scientist and tried it on a few friends, it worked every time.
