This will be the last MV Review for now. October releases will be reviewed next month.
Our special review will focus on a First-Gen K-Pop group called Fin.K.L. For a bit of info, it debuted last May 1998, with Hyori, Joohyun, Jin, and Yuri as members. I suppose most of us would have heard of Lee Hyori, who was the only member active as of now.
With Fin.K.L active again after 14 years, and since no reviewers dealt with it, we will review them. It’s a rare opportunity to touch on this group. Let’s start!
(Side Note: For comparison, their debut happened when TWICE’s Dahyun was born. Feel old yet?)
The story starts with girls camping and reminiscing moments. They try to reenact what happened to them during their heydays. These include recording together in the studio and having dance performance.
While the mood of the members was very light, it sends a sad message: Reality tells that time will come for groups to disband. (Unless there’s intention to last a long time, like TVXQ and Super Junior.)
From the tunes heard, it uses old tunes harking back to first years of K-Pop. In a way, this lets us aware on what happened to the genre we love during its formative years.
This exactly shows what would happen if our favorite groups disband. Imagine your favorite groups deciding to part ways. And after long years, they reunite again through these. You would be happy and sad at same time, don’t you?
The title best describes this statement: “Like the songs we made, our friendship still remains.” The bond is still there despite the changes. Even if the prime time is short, memories will forever be etched in their hearts and minds.
On a personal note, I earnestly hope this opens the door again for them.
