We acquired indie pop, ballads and a collaboration with Korean hip-hop artist Giriboy. We acquired the R&B title monitor and a fully wonderful music video. The lead-up to this album was additionally virtually good, from the nature-inspired teasers to his first solo live shows held in Seoul.

Initially of the music video, we see Onew right here, wanting straight into the digicam. His hair is messy and he is wearing impartial colours, and it retains biking via him in several scenes. Every cycle alternates with several types of lifeless development as effectively. He appears ethereal, the muted tones of the stage and his outfit paired with the haunting vocals. The lyrics are lovely when translated into English, they examine the highs and lows of our lives to the seasons and say how every part will probably be accomplished.
This subsequent episode has Onew in a theater specializing in him. The brilliant blue contacts that the stylists put him in ghosts. It attracts the viewers consideration to him and in the identical muted colours as earlier than, it actually matches the general temper of the tune. There was a melancholy really feel to this episode, particularly when the disgruntled cat puppet comes out. It is one thing that makes us really feel like if you are available in after a stroll on a brisk winter’s day. It’s a heat that blooms however nonetheless a coldness deep down.
The final scene that completely took our breath away was the alluded to TV sequence Onew was on. There was a whimsical ingredient that took us again to our childhood and reveals that Zooboomafoo or Studying Rainbow. As soon as wearing a checkered go well with, sitting on a synthetic grass hill and surrounded by towers of books in addition to animal and mushroom statues already gave us cottage-core vibes. However if you plug in his “Caramel” vocals too, we have been in heaven.
