Here’s something I used to do a lot but I haven’t been doing lately: a totally random K-pop post.
I’ve written before that my current K-pop bias is the group SEVENTEEN. (I wrote a short background of how I got into the group at my SEVENTEEN Ideal Cut in Manila Aftermath report.) The group has just released their latest single, HIT, and it was AWESOME. I mean, I am not a fan of EDM but for some reason, this song just caught me hook, line and sinker. I feel like clubbing after this. Mind you, I hate clubbing.
I’ve also been spending time watching reaction videos to this MV and they all had one thing in common: after the video, they just sat there dumbfounded and out of words to say.
It suddenly it hit me: there’s a recent thing which had the same effect on me and practically everyone who saw it.
That recent thing? The movie Hello, Love, Goodbye.
I distinctly remember the premiere night, how everyone just sat through the end credits as if it’s a Marvel movie, waiting for what will happen next. We strutted out of the cinema with eyes glazed, asking ourselves and each other what the heck did we just experience. It’s simply mind-blowing. We were all dumbfounded, we just found ourselves grasping for tickets to the next screening. And the next. And the next.
Fortunately for SEVENTEEN’s Hit, all I have to do is to hit ‘reload’ to see it again. And again. And again.
