Still doing my bit for FrotherCulture, combined with recent acquaintance with the more interesting areas of Kpop, I stumbled across this short enigmatic piece:https://youtu.be/HRQpNxFFkhA
Some searching revealed it to be a mashup of two mv's, made eight years apart. The first one, from 2011:https://youtu.be/R6ofj4jfhpk
There's a lot going on there, so I won't comment, except to say that I'd looked at it briefly, some time ago, and dismissed the song as the kind of sugary aegyo/kawaii stuff I don't care for. I now see how it fits into the context of the story of a young, immature girl.
And there's a definite Tim Burton/Danny Elfman feel to both video and music; in fact, though I posted a shortened version, because it has subtitles, the original has an even more cinematic atmosphere, with end titles, deleted scenes, and outtakes, beginning at about 6:20:https://youtu.be/R6ofj4jfhpk
Last year, a sequel was made -- or is it a "parallel"? You decide:https://youtu.be/R3Fwdnij49o
You'll need to turn on the captions for that one.
