It has been a while since we all last got something from this hip hop and rap duo, Leessang. Tears was released way back in January 2013, 10 months ago. It instantly topped charts and to me is one of the best songs of the year. Gary, who participates in Running Man and Gil who participates in Infinity Challenge, have received love through those means, but now, it seems like they are missing from the scene. We have been told that the duo will make their comeback, sometime this year, if the rumours are true. I am also hoping that rumours about this website celebrating its second year are true. which they are. Too easy??? I will let that one slide for now.
The song is another emotional song. As soon as you hear the title of the song, you can tell that the song is gonna be a bigger tear jerker! I should really stop. No, but the raps by Gary and the vocals of Gil and Eugene are very strong and portray the true feelings of the song in great detail. Seriously amazing. Despite it being released 10 months, it is a song that I have been going to over and over again, because it is that great. It also warms your heart, particularly in winter (or cause you to sweat more). The instrumental does not get in the way with the vocals or rap. It is quite soft and plain, but with the voices it is big and loud. You may think the drums are quite loud, but I find it louder with the vocals.
As for the music video, it is equally as amazing. Credits to Daniel from Dalmatian and NS Yoon G for their amazing acting in this video. I don’t think credit is the right word for me to use. We see them at the start breaking up, and from then, like Busker Busker’s video, we see two lives, complaint shaken and different from the life they had as a couple. The screen splits into two, showing a bright side of the picture (them being a couple) and a much more darker side (for their sad lonely times). but what makes this video much better is that despite it being the bright side, we still see some of those lonely times as well. The video was also made to trick us into thinking the two are going to meet up, but it seems we get from the ending that they are two different people from two different worlds, and hence, they cannot be together. That last scene where they cross each other paths just tells us that they have decided to go their different ways, but as all couples, still have hope that they have not realized yet.
10/10. Two 10/10’s in a row. Wow, that is a first. Amazing song and also amazing music video.
