It had been ages since I last post a MV. Sorry for the long wait as my internet lines were very -ehm.. slow
I’m sooooo in love with this song right now. It’s not the typical SoulStar song (R&B) but towards the powerful ballad type. The song starts with a slow pace then builds up towards the end.
I also liked the settings of this MV. The guy in this MV is the same guy in SoulStar’s first MV, Only One for Me, which he played the pianist-composer guy. He’s a CF model and his name is Park Jae Jung.Even though the girl in the MV did some singing, she is not Baek Ji Young. She is an actress and her name is Lee Su Kyung.

This is the representative song for Soul Star’s single album, ‘When We Break Up.’ The duet melds the sweet voice of Soul Star’s youngest member, Lee Kyu-hoon, and Baek Ji-young’s poignant vocals. It’s an honest song about the pain of separating. Actress Lee Su-kyung endured 48 hours on an ice set to make the music video.

^ Icy 😛 … title.
The mv actually starts with a guy walking away from a girl who’s sitting in an icy place…brrr…I’m not sure it is real ice or fake ice but the settings really looked cold. When I watched those scenes, I felt that the guy is trying to break up with the girl but it was like he doesn’t really want to break up with her. More to like, she’s done something that really hurts him and he has to walk away from the relationship to have some time off.
That’s when we were shown close-up of the couple and they were actually crying. When the tears from the girl fell onto her hand, it turned to ice.
After sometime, the guy realised that something was wrong and turned back to see…
…that she was now encased in ice. He was shocked and tried to get her out of the iceberg.
She didn’t respond and …
….he found a steel bar (or poker?) to try and break down the ice before she died in it.
…will he succeed?
Actually, this MV is a bit sad and the girl willingly let the ice encased her somehow made me feel that she has given up hope (and life?) on the relationship with this guy. Seeing how the guy turned back when he felt something was wrong meant he still loved her and wanted to salvage this relationship but somehow, he was too late.
Yeah, that’s the overall feeling that I get when I watched this MV. It’s very metaphoric. Oh yes, I am purely interpreting this MV based on what I have watched and the song title – I have no idea what’s the song actually means as I do not have access to the contents of the lyric.
If you download and watch this MV, please do tell me what’s your interpretation.
