The art of misleading the audience
Comments below may contain some spoilers. Please watch the video first.
[Steeleye] A very telling video, I say. The song is also very catchy. I think that this can be interpreted in several ways. For one: shows that leads and second leads may have problems letting go of each other rather than the girl. I think the video shows what many fans may be thinking a lot of the times: that two lead guys are better together than with any of the girl, in cases where bromance feels stronger. Or maybe it’s something more than bromance.. And then…and then there is the more interesting fact, which I will leave Yeona to elaborate more. In any case, this video is really interesting!
[Yeona]: The video is not really new but its story is very actual and will always make a good subject for discussions. After I watched it I thought of two very popular korean dramas- Reply 1994 and Reply 1997. It’s well known the way these dramas played with the audience’s minds and hearts with their “let’s guess who the husband is” stories. But that’s not all of it, because Korean love stories are not that simple, it was a game of “he is the one, no wait it’s the other guy or maybe not?”, “who does he/she love?” to come to a point where you didn’t know anymore if it’s a triangle, a bromance or just a one-sided love. The charm of this video is that you see three people in love and makes you think “aigoo another cliché” but the ending is so surprinsing, I bet even the writers of Reply 1997 were jealous on it. But don’t leave out the song, its lyrics sang by the talented singer K. Will convey very well the sad or happy feelings emanated by love. Fans of Reply 1997 can consider this video as another version of the story between Shi-won, Yoon-je and Joon-hee. Coincidence or not, Seo In Guk is the lead in both of them but it seems he doesn’t play the same characters too.
