Mad Clown, after his hit song Stupid In Love, has finally returned with a new song. Last time he enlisted the help of the Soyu from Sistar for his debut song, this time he asked for Hyorin from the same band. And the song seems to be very popular as it has won an award already making a song that will top charts. Also, I wish to say a few things about the recent ferry accident in South Korea. My thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost loved ones in this horrible incident and my thoughts and prayers goes out to those who are still missing. I am thankful that there were survivors and that they will fully heal from the scars that they have obtained from an accident that basically stopped the nation and the rest of the world. And to those ignorant KPOP fans and other people in the world, screw you. You are not a fan if you have not heart to care for the others.
This song is a pretty cool song. I really liked his debut single, Stupid In Love, mainly because you can tell the rap has been thought out properly and on top of that, he was really passionately. To me, this time he took the rapping down a notch to fit the emotional vocals of Hyorin and meaning of the song. His rapping has these really good rnb sound that I actually like. The rapping at the start does actually build up to the chorus, however I really like it how they drop the final seconds so the instrumental builds up the rest, letting the song flow much better. Another thing to talk about, Hyorin is not the main star of this song. She is getting no publicity for this song, whereas Soyu got a lot of love from Stupid In Love. Her vocals don’t get in the way of the rapping and sound pretty good. There is nothing to show Hyorin off, which is a good move by the management. Though the ending is where I am going to complain about and this only applies to the live performances. The rapping and vocals at the end sound pretty good, but it seems more like a hot mess to me. In the song, it is not there, however in the live performances it is, so I a little confused with it. But overall a pretty good song.
The music video is shot in a black and white monotone kind of setting. There is nothing flashy or loud in this music video, which places emphasis on the plot and vocals in the song. How I understood the music video may have been a little different to the rest of you guys. Mainly cause I am not that great at connecting various pieces of information together. But we have a couple, where the girl left. The guy feels like he is unable to live without the girl, so he decides to occupy with himself, which ended up failing. He looks into a mirror, he tries to draw something, but it all reminds him of his past. So he ended up breaking everything so he can forget everything, even the girl, who returns at the end of the video, to find a pretty trashed up placed and also that her boyfriend or ex boyfriend had left. Pretty good video I have to say. Plot was pretty solid and I think that the song fitted the feeling and level of emotion in the video.
Really good song and music video. 7.5/10
