I love sad songs, and this is a truly beautiful one. The song is about being in love with a girl who cannot forget this guy she used to love, and they cannot continue to love her because it hurts them too much. They aren’t saying they are giving up on the girl, they are saying they will miss her until she is ready to forget the last love and return. They say they should forget her and ask if she is ready to come to them yet. It has a brilliant pace and the lyrics are very clear. As trademark of a ballad song the chorus is very short, and the verse controls most of the song.
“My love can’t come to its place/ it’s going as far as the many tears I’ve cried/ I have to forget you/ I miss you so much/ Even if you don’t know that it hurts/ I forget”
SM The Ballad is not a dance group, they are a ballad group, so they stand in place.
See??? When you give them a storyline the members do not look so darn awkward around one another! I’m sorry I don’t know the names of the two lead actors, I know one was in a popular drama recently, I think “King of Baking”, but I’m not sure who the girl is, just that she works for SM Entertainment (at least that’s what my Korean roommates told me). The story is a bit fairy-tale like, but it fits very well with this song. A young man wakes up one morning and gets a call from a friend about a meteor (or at this point is it called a meteorite?). The man takes a few pictures of the thing as it crashes, flaming, to earth and continues on his way. On the way to wherever he’s going he sees a large crater in the road with feathers all around, he continues past it and sees an angel curled in the alleyway. Her wings retract to reveal bad cuts, so he takes her back to his place and takes care of her, cleaning the wound on her back (and not knowing it heals on it’s own as soon as he is gone). The two quickly fall in love, but two guys who look like pimps in white suits (presumably other angels) come after her. The guy tries to save her from them, but they try to kill him until her wings reappear and she throws them back. He wakes up again in his bed just like the day before, but when he turns on his camera to see the pictures of the meteorite he sees images of a flying angel.
The group is MUCH easier to watch now that there are others to hold the focus of the MV. There is less awkward hand action (but Kyuhyun still does that half-up thing with his arm) and some of the shots in the story are a little corny, but all together it fits really well. I like this MV TONS more than “Hot Times”, and I hope to see a lot more STORY MVs from them in the future ^^
