Quite the Sexy Solo Debut
The choreography is absolutely gorgeous, very sexy, very allusive to bedroom pursuits, and yet it manages to avoid the cliche crassness that a lot of sexy-concept dances fall into. The movements show off SunMi's fabulous flexibility in addition to her fabulous figure. And I LOVE how the guys also have the intricate hand-motions in their choreography. A lot of people think it looks girly, but I think that's a stupid stereotype because these guys look awesome and I'd love to see more guys take one the delicate, gymnastic, air of movement in their dances. Also, Ballet and Tango and all sorts of other 'feminine' dances are seriously under-utilized, they look awesome when used well and Kpop choreographers have the skill to use them well..
The styling is great. The stripped leo is first of all just gorgeous, and it also shows off her body and her exceptional legs perfectly without making it feel too over the top, particularly as a lot of the choreography's movement have links to gymnastics. The men's dress shirt segments are also gorgeous. First of all, I like the look of a girl wearing an oversized men's dress shirt, I think it just looks cool, but beyond that it also ties closely into the song's meaning. I was concerned by the teasers in regards to the washed-out hair-color, but honestly it works here. First of all SunMi is gorgeous and can pull off just about anything, but really, the washed-out hair-color just works here, thematically speaking. The song is about there not being enough hours in the day when the lovers are together, and the hair color's lack of up-keep shows an acute side effect of not having enough hours to do everything that ought to get done.
The settings are all fabulous, the curtains are fantastic and make for a subtle contrast to the striped leo (the outfit being horizontal stripes and the curtains forming pseudo-vertical ones, and the rain scene plays into the over all color scheme beautifully. The camera tricks are all very well done, particularly the playing with time in the slo-mos and reversals, and the speedy-shot segments (though frankly if they hadn't played with time in this MV it would have been a massive error). My favorite camera-trick is the scene at about 1:42, where the "horizontal on the bed" position is compared to the "vertical in choreography" position and the image flicks back and forth between the two. It's disorienting in all the right ways.
Tack-wise, the song is nicely intense. The Bridge feels a bit jarring, and rather extraneous, but the visual during that part is really quite awesome, so I wouldn't recommend a removal, at least from the video version. The song really doesn't evolve much, it never takes the listener anywhere, but in some ways that does work with the lyrics. I think it could have been made to move better, but it's a fairly well balanced track with a good, if simple, structure: over all it's a great dance track with a lovely sound for the genre.
