This is one of my favourite songs by JaeJoong and to be honest, the whole album which this is from is wonderful (on the album note, the photobook is so pretty ♥.♥).
I would like to thank Noël (who has a great blog and you should definitely check out their work! Plus they are lovely~), for who this post was encouraged by. I hope you like it~
From the MV, I would say that the song is about how “JaeJoong” really loves this girl, however, she ends things with him. This both upsets him and frustrates him, because he thought she was different.
Well, this is sort of the case, but there is a lot more to it than I thought (here are the lyrics). So the woman seems to be playing with him and not being the person that they claim to be. He wants her to just leave, this need gets more intense as the song goes on. Apparently if she was gone, he could live like a man and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Although I kind of get the impression that he is sort of to blame as well… not sure why though ^^”
What are your thoughts on this?
This video is so beautiful, especially the black and white scene, as it was visually pleasing. I also enjoyed the scene where JaeJoong was strutting his stuff with the furniture crashing to the ground, the colour scheme of the sky and ground was pretty and of course JaeJoong in a suit is always a good thing!
I also loved the contrast of the rock tetris/band scene which are very dark and tough, to the cute pastel scenes between JaeJoong and the girl. Those scenes were pretty cute ♥ I also felt that the scenes pictured reminded me of ‘Mine’, and had a great rock style that both fits this song and JaeJoong. Although, I wasn’t sure if the tetris blocks were needed, but they were kind of cool haha
JaeJoong’s outfits were great, they were stylish and matched his style~ I particularly liked the suit, as mentioned, but also the cute white jumper he wore in the ‘flashback’ scenes, it was nice with his skin tone and hair~
To be honest, I have not listened to JYJ that much, instead I have heard more of their individual work. JaeJoong’s individual work tends to have a sort of rock influence and his voice has a great quality to it that blends into the style well. JaeJoong also has a passion to his voice which can come through.
I also loved the music, especially the introduction. The piano tune at the beginning was beautiful and then when it went into the guitar version…. I just… words! haha ^^” It’s so beautiful and sets the tone of the song really well.

I also wanted to include this picture, mostly because it shouldn’t go to waste! JaeJoong is so handsome, most of the time I don’t think it’s legal! I hope that his army service is going okay and that the time passes quickly for his return, can’t wait to hear his voice again ♥
Thank you for reading~
