Happy Friday, Twinkles!!! I hope you’re ready to usher in another glorious weekend! 😉
After what seems like a long hiatus–at least to me!–our little Friday Fun corner has returned, and I’ve got a lineup of fun songs for you in the coming months! 🙂
Video: Released March 2, 2016, compliments of 1theK (원더케이) via YouTube
It’s no secret that our poster boy and triple-threat Korean star Lee Seung Gi has entered the armed forces to serve his mandatory two-year military service. What’s helped to ease the pain of his required retreat from civilian life is the well-planned series of songs that he and his entertainment company have planned and released while he’s in service.
More than the song itself, though, this music video is a bittersweet, nostalgic compilation of his past and present, even including an intimate scene of his army haircut with a closeup shot that is so close that one feels as though one is right there at the barber shop with him. Yes, we’ve been given what feels like a private peek at Lee Seung Gi right before he enters another phase of his life. *wipes tears* How quickly our little Seung Gi has grown into a man!
The song itself is classic Lee Seung Gi. The music video…if you’re a staunch LSG fan, I hope you’ve got a box of tissues within arm’s reach. The opening scene references his debut song and takes us on a visual journey of his growth as a serious contender in the Korean entertainment industry…and the last scene…well, let’s just say that it’s a salute to his current service to his country. Yes, our little eye candy is growing up into an admirable young man, and we get to witness this transformation. *wipes tears of pride*
I hope you enjoy this music video as much as I did! Here’s to the return of Friday Fun and a glorious weekend to you all! 🙂
