Yoon Mi Rae Returns With ‘This Love’ But the MV Needs Revising!!
On December 13th, Yoon Mi Rae made a comeback with a song ballad titled ‘This Love’. While the song is nothing less than a tear jerker, the music video leaves one wanting more. The song tells a story, but in the music video we’re left watching Mi Rae lip-sync as she’s slowly spun around, so you aren’t sure what the story is.
To the director’s credit some digital effects were added and Mi Rae’s beauty shines in the array of outfits she wears. This almost makes up for the lack of storyline showcased. The problem is this entire MV was completely devoid of substance due to a lack of emotion from Mi Rae, in addition to the director’s obsessive need to showcase her clothing and make-up. The staleness of the music video could ‘ve been easily avoided with addition of her husband, Tiger JK, mirrors, and more effects. I know how Jungle likes to work with a budget, but if they wanted to splurge a little more then the addition of an ‘orchestra’ would’ve made it seem like actual effort was put forth.
If Tiger JK appeared in the MV, it would’ve given the music video a personal touch. The additions would have made her many wardrobes pop into character, thus making things more three dimensional. Mirrors could’ve been used to play on reflections adding depth to the settings. It would imply that her lover isn’t around anymore by showing Tiger’s reflection by her side in the mirror.
Visual effects would’ve been used to fade Tiger JK and turn him into red petals fluttering in the wind, becoming her cloak. The scene where Mi Rae is shown taking off her red cloak would then be symbolic. The scene where she has a hairstyle similar to the ones in ‘It Hurts’ by 2NE1, and the lights flash would stay the same for the most part, but I’d also add an ‘orchestra’ or at least the percussion section to add a bit of drama.
Those are the changes I’d make to the MV what about you guys? Are there MV’s you know of that have great potential but don’t reach it? What do you think of the video?
