Today is the 6th day of the month. So naturally, it is time for the monthly DAY6 review. Last month, they returned with What Can I Do? and now this month the song is titled I Loved You (and the continuation of last month’s video).
The song marks the band’s return to their emotional side. The rock ballad song actually sounds nice. That being said, there isn’t anything groundbreaking or new about the song. It does sound pretty standard from the start to the end of the song. But I like it that way. The instrumental isn’t too heavy and compliments the softer vocals and emotional side of the song as well. Talking about the vocals, they sound quite nice but it isn’t amazing like so of their other works. While we know DAY6 for their versatility, the group played it safe with a very neutral song for this month. I am not too troubled by that though but it does dampen my expectations for something different from the band. It wont be my go-to DAY6 song but it will easily satisfy my ballad craving that I habe periodically.
The music video is the continuation of the same before from last month. Here we see a lot more character development. Young K is cocky, hence why no one wanted to be around him the previous video. Dowoon is popular due to his good looks and intelligence. Jae is in love with another girl, while Sungjin makes his moves after mustering enough courage to talk to his crush. Poor Wonpil, who was left on the bus and looking at Sungjin in a heartbroken manner. The most interesting friendship from this video has to be Young K and Dowoon’s. The latter defends the other but gets bashed in the process. However Dowoon stays close by and help his new friend out by buying medication for him. The connections between the videos make it very interesting to watch. Furthermore, the band scenes in the dash look awesome and very fitting.
