The MV starts with the girls finding an old box they left locked away, and it is filled with various items. What is clear from the fact they locked it away is that the items have value to them only in what they represent. So whenever they boxed them up, they meant very little to them in terms of immediate use as the items they were. So what was their meaning? To find the answer we have to go back in time.
We start with a flashback of Seungyeon having been stuffed in a locker. We all know what this means, it means she's a fucking loser and so other students bullied her. And since the other members were getting her out of the locker, it means they are her fucking loser friends. That is why they are having a birthday party alone with each other at school. Talk about a bunch of nerds.
|omfg she is impossibly cute|
|They only party alone in real life because they're idols.|
Target: This poor asshole. He did nothing wrong, he was simply the only guy in town who would give them the time of day. Now because this is also a criticism of sasaeng fans, the girls don't give a shit about each finding their own individual guy, nor do they care about actually connecting with him like human beings. Rather, their goal is to have him extend a generally affectionate gesture to them one by one, and that will affirm to them that they are worthwhile human beings. How does it go?
|Jing wrote a letter to sway him.|
|Gyuri pretended she was waiting for him.|
|Nicole faked an injury to get private dance lessons and let her body seduce him.|
|Hara kissed him as they took what was supposed to just be a friendly picture.|
One by one, when facing reality, they know it's wrong, feel guilty, and are reluctant and/or freeze up. This is probably confused for romantic shyness by most viewers, but I assure you that this is what is really going on. You can tell because the others are always pushing the one whose turn it is, and especially since after they have each attained proof of their prize, they all have a good laugh at his expense... even right in front of him. He was kind and gave them gifts, and they simply don't give a shit about him.
So at the end they have all gotten the affirmation (in their minds) of their sexual desirability they were looking for and drop him like a used tampon. They are happily together at the end, without him, convinced that they are all hot bitches when in reality all they did was abuse the pity of a kind person to feed their vanity. And of course all of this was a series of flashbacks they are happily looking back upon, using that one instance to validate their existence for years to come.
|They immediately locked the box of his gifts here.|
