And it is truly appreciated!!
The MV starts on a tight focus on Taeyang’s jawline and neck tattoo and then slowly pulls back, revealing his shirtless state (nice!) and building to a crescendo of fire (literally burning a giant picture of the girl he’s singing about in a spectacularly dramatic fashion).
All MV’s should have dramatic fire.
And shirtlessness (with abs).
It’s certainly different to most MV’s out there, as there’s no dance or plot to be seen, rather you’re forced to focus on Taeyang and he puts in a very emotional performance. He has some really fantastic small movements that make repeated watching of the MV a must. My favourite part would have to be the sound of the fire that you can hear over the song – it’s a real asmr moment.
The song is like the MV – stripped back and bare, but it’s such a lovely track. I liked it a lot! I’m considering getting the album ‘Rise’ as I loved so many of the songs that are on it. I don’t currently have a lot of Big Bang in my collection (only 2 albums, and G-Dragon’s solos) but there’s a lot to like here.
I’m looking forward to a Big Bang comeback at some point this year, but all of the member’s solo efforts have been stellar A+
