    I agree. I liked the video. Pleasant visuals, but overall it wasn’t particularly captivating despite having some pretty nice moments, and the acting was adequate. Some film students (fans) have praised it greatly though so there must be something I’m missing.

    I will be the first to admit that I’ve downloaded the video as well as have watched it several times on youtube for the sole reason of catching glimpses of Mr. Kim Sung-gyu himself. Though I don’t resent L for being in the video, it would have been nice to put some better actors in there yet I see why he was necessary. The video as it stands doesn’t have many views compared to Infinite’s other videos, which also tend to be on the lower view count of the spectrum anyway, and had he not been included I doubt it would have even half the views it does now, sadly.

    I don’t think there’s much else to comment on. Although I will say this: Despite not being the best video of all time, it definitely surpasses the majority of videos we’ve been seeing recently and even many from earlier this year. This wasn’t some half-assed production, so for that alone we should be thankful.

      “had he not been included I doubt it would have even half the views it does now, sadly.” 
      -Yeah that does kinda make me sad but its true. Heck my own sister only watched the MV with me because she thinks L is cute, she doesn’t care for Sunggyu or the song. She just hasn’t seen the light. lol.

    I was just wondering… If she dated him, and if she really liked him, why the hell couldn’t she recognize him until he showed his full face, and she doesnt recognize the ring at all.

    • Gaya_SB

      That’s what I thought as well, but I reasoned that if she was the one to break it off, then she might not have dwelled on the relationship like L, and thus probably have forgotten details like the ring and… his face… 

      • regina_filange

        HA! Don’t try to reason, Kpop MVs aren’t a place for that. 

      • k_db

        I’m just going to assume she is legally blind and often scalds her customers with hot coffee.

    I’m of the opinion that this love story didn’t really happen and that L’s character is some sort of magical time lord who can see into what could have beens. It sounds weird but hear me out :)) Like, when he first met the girl, he was able to see the future he would eventually have with her and decided against pursuing the relationship to save him the pain. This doesn’t stop him from wanting to be with her, and the thought that he can’t depresses him. As for the girl crying at the end, I think L also inadvertently showed her what he saw. All in one minute. Tying up with the theme. (okay, I may have forced that but you can’t say it doesn’t work, right? XD)

    IDK, the idea that anyone would simply forget the face of her boyfriend (who SHE broke up with, mind you) doesn’t really make sense to me. But I’m not discrediting anyone’s ideas — the best part about music videos like this is that they’re very open to interpretation ^_^It is stunning though, lovely cinematography and coloring, regardless of acting.

      This is totally my headcanon now <3

    • AcadiasFire

      I like that thought. It kinda makes more sense. Because her not recoginzing him was odd. Literally.

    I have nothing against L, but was I the only one that wanted to see Sunggyu as the main role…I know L’s the visual and all but I wanted to see how Sunggyu would do. He’s a visual to me, he looked pretty hot in that black suit lol. But anyways back on topic, I agree with Kyla, I think the ring L had showed him the future in 60 seconds and how it didn’t end well so he decides not to pursue her, then he gives her the ring to see what he saw and they both end up crying at what could have been.

      You’re not alone I was disappointed with no Sunggyu really. I know people think Sunggyu will be “taken seriously if he doesn’t appear in his MV” (not sure why though), but for his first solo adventure it would have been nice to actually see him in his own video.

  • aridnie

    They both did so well in the music video. Sunggyu has worked so hard. And Myungsoo has improved so much(: Hwaiting oppas!

  • animasaurus

    I love the mv, it has a gorgeous tone and the storyline is very thoughtful. Personally I like the fact that Sunggyu wasn’t featured as much in the mv because it allows for the song to speak for itself and for people to take him more seriously than simply as an idol who makes a typical mv where he is the star and it’s all about him. It really made it easier to focus more on what the mv and song was trying to portray. Sunggyu is probably my least favorite infinite member (not to say I don’t like him, I actually happen to respect him much more than the other members) but I really think everything about his solo efforts has been really well done.

    A lot of people think Sunggyu should be the main because it’s his song but in so many mv’s the singer is not even in the mv and yet the video is just as memorable and beautiful. BEG’s “cleansing cream” and Nell’s “the day before” come to mind.

  • AcadiasFire

    I really liked the mv. It was better than some of the other videos this year. It’s sad to think that L was possibly put in there just to up the views. I mean Sunggyu isn’t my favorite member of Infinite. Especially Because it seems that he has a huge ego but his voice has always sounded heavenly to me. So I loke him anyways despite all that lol

    • Gaya_SB

      Random question, but is the “loke” deliberate?

      • AcadiasFire

        Lol no. Every time I try to fix it the edit freezes -_- …now its working.

    • http://thankgyuu.tumblr.com/ Mrs_KimSungGyu

      No no no, Sunggyu doesnt have a huge ego. He’s actually rather shy and introverted…he also tends to underestimate himself. He lacks self-confidence. Lol.

      Honestly his character is a bit difficult to understand, but he’s a really nice guy who loves Infinite more than anything. He’s just incredibly misunderstood because of his urge to appear as a ‘cool guy’.

      • AcadiasFire

        Yeah, i can see he really loves his group though. It’s sweet.

    I knew from the teaser this was going to a “Myungsoo video” which upset me a little. A lot of fans were getting up in arms about anyone daring to say we had a right to be disappointed, which just made me roll my eyes. I know a lot of solo singers don’t actually appear in their video, and that’s fine and all that. I just wished Sunggyu was actually physically a part of his own MV, since it was his very first music video. I read an interview where Sunggyu stated that Myungsoo said he wanted to be in the MV. He said he didn’t mind, but after thinking back on it he would have preferred if it was him acting the storyline. Though he did say even if he wanted to do it that Woolim may have said no. He also stated his family members asked where he was in the teaser as well. I felt bad for him in that retrospect. A lot of band members have gone solo, and never used a fellow member in their MV. Even if Myungsoo is the most popular member, watching the MV doesn’t = to sale of albums in my opinion.

    The tone and the elegance of the MV was lovely. Myungsoo needs more facial expressions if I’m going to be critical. He has three faces: look at me I’m pretty, look at me blink, and look at me cry awkwardly. I really liked the girl in this video. I do think the cuts of Sunggyu in this MV made it a little awkward. As gorgeous as he looked, the band and dark concept took away from the pastel tones of the MV as a whole and the few cuts to Sunggyu were just awkward in my eyes. I wish they mind up either stick with the dramatisation MV with Myungsoo or have Sunggyu as the lead with the band with a different storyline.

    I do think Woolim does a good job for Infinite and their MV and he didn’t really disappoint with Sunggyu’s MV. It is always well-made, doesn’t use the same staples as other music videos and whilst it may not be extravagant complements the music well.
