Junsu has finally made his highly anticipated comeback with his new music video, “Flower,” featuring Epik High‘s Tablo. We had teaser photos, and teaser video , you can check them out here , here, here, and here.
So talk a deep breath and check out the music video below.
All of the teasers and videos did not do this song any justice. They were enough to pull you in, but then the music video drops and BAM, you were not prepared. It had been about 2 years since we last had a Junsu solo album. “Flower” was written by Junsu and singer song-writer C-Luv.
The song opens up with Epik High‘s Tablo.
“You know I’m here with you.
Cause lies can’t kill the truth.”
Then after, we get our first look at the robot head as its being thrown at Junsu. The imagery of the music video just gets more awesome and odd from there. I have been trying to think of how to describe the music video, so here is what I have come up with.
An artsy, gladiator, post-apocalyptic music video, with cave man chic thrown in. I have come down to one of two conclusions about the music video’s theme. The first, is it is overloaded with symbolism that one could devote hours or months or their life going through it all. The second, is all that I just said is wrong and it is just epic and random.
One thing that kept popping into my head is the word power. From the opening scene with Junsu on his throne, to the dancing, I mean seriously he melts down the robot head then drinks it, not like you can run to your favorite coffee chain and order a hot cup of melted robot head. At the 1 minute and 56 second mark the song halts; everything, the singing the dancing, even the back up dancers look like they have been un-plugged. Junsu stops and looks at what has to be one of the most adorable little girls in the world. I think she may be the innocence in this crazy world that Junsu has created. The choreography is excellent. It is sexy, powerful, yet has a sense of cool swagger that you only can get from performers of this caliber. Oh and did I mention the hip rolling ?
Like the dance, the vocals are also exceptional but again that is standard Junsu. Besides dancing he has some of the best and most powerful vocals in all of K-Pop, and I would go so far to say in music itself. The addition of the choir in the background adds depth to the song and takes it to a whole new level. This is topped off at the 3 minute and 9 second mark, where Junsu and the choir go into a music crescendo roller coaster ride.
