Great Voice, Great Guy, Meh Song . . .
Junsu's beautiful voice and vocal power could have been better showcased singing nursery rhyme. Honstly, that's what this song sounds like to me, a very stilted and unnatural nursery rhyme that's new or uncomfortable for the singer. It's SO stilted that if it was anyone else I'd think that he had cue cards with the lyrics written on them being held and shuffled for him to see just off camera. The pauses between the lines are just so unnecessarily drawn out. When the Piano finally kicks in, it's a very lovely ballad, but it's still boring, there's no melodic really movement, just the up and down and then back up and back down in neat little couplets that are so melodically cookie cutter it's painful. The piano saves it, because the piano introduces a lovely element of evolving counterpoint.
And then about the 'special clip' itself. BLEH. Honestly, I have no idea why people are so excited about it. The thing is atrocious. Yes, he looks great. Yes, the setting is cool. Yes, it's all one take. That means nothing. It's Junsu. Has he even not looked great? The setting? Anything that isn't the stereotypical studio is neat and interesting. And the one take thing? That's LAZINESS, not awesomeness. If there was something like a story in the video, or a cool Rube-Goldberg sort of series of events, then it could be cool (like in Infinite's Nothing's Over, that one-take illusion is AWESOME). This? It's pathetic. They used a one-take platform because they didn't want to edit the damn thing, or film it from multiple angle over the course of a whole day because both aspects are time consuming and expensive.
All in all, this is a lazy excuse for a promotional anything. And Loen knows it. Which is why it's bein marketed as a special clip instead of a real MV, because if it was a real MV it could be judged as nothing but a pathetic sham.
