In any case, SM's lawsuit settlement finally eased some of the pressure on JYJ's excommunication from the Korean music industry, and with the new window of opportunity opened, (RE)ENTERED CHUCK.
Here's my long-awaited review of Chuck-oppa's latest cumback to the KPop scene.
First off, I want to preface this review by saying
Anyways, Chuck's MV is the brilliant epitome of KPop cinematography and conceptual originality. It's more of a concept video than the traditional song-and-dance in a box type we're used to, but Chuck's genius manages to shine through nonetheless. Part storyline and part slo-mo cam faptacle (fap + spectacle = faptacle), watching this has simply blown my mind beyond repair.
|MFW I watch this MV every time.|
|Notice that he's bound by chain through his neck only. He's free to move around, but only on|
a very short leash. His knockoff Bane mask represents his lack of freedom of speech and
how everything he said was filtered and distorted.
Fed up with all the bullshit, he decides to break free of his chains aka file a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and get the hell outta DBSK.
|Breaking out with style~|
|The crows are fangirls/haters/SME staff, etc.|
|AKA Makes a cumback.|
It's all confusing stuff to the untrained mind, but with enough watching, even I could figure this shit out. There's also a lot of phallic imagery in the MV, perhaps hinting at his repressed homosexuality and his eventual outing as a sparkling angel of faggotry.
|There is a long, shiny, and black protrusion on his face that simultaneously sprouts from his|
head and obscures his face. It symbolizes his love for having a big thick meatpole slapped
across his face.
|Different angle, but this time also containing a gesture that can only be identified|
as either his favored blowjob technique or his preference for spitting out rather than swallowing
the big wads of cum shot into his mouth.
|This is Chuck double fisting a snake. I think you know where this is going.|
That being said, I really enjoyed his new song. Rarely seen before in KPop without inducing cringes (I'm looking at you, DBSK Triangle and Super Junior Don't Don), the visual kei angle wasn't really explored too well until now. Certainly not in a musical sense, unless someone would like to prove me horribly wrong. At any rate, it's a rock sound heavier and more raw sounding than anything CNBlue or FT Island has put out thus far.
I wish Chuck had gone with an even heavier sound with even more growly vocals because the song as released, while pretty good as is, definitely sounds like a more radio friendly version of a proper visual kei song.
Slickly produced autobiographical MV for a surprisingly good poppish-Visual Kei rock song.
- relatively fresh visual kei concept
- interesting song
- autobiography of Chuck's life
- rather diluted radio-friendly execution
- not enough growls/rawness for da visual kei, should be more HAM
I give this song 4 tramp stamps out of 5.
