Guys! Akdong Musician (AKMU) is back with a double promotion! They just barely released their two music videos for “Re-Bye” and “How People Move”. I'm super excited for this because it's been a long while since we've heard anything from this sibling duo. Did they keep their cute style or have they changed at all? Let's find out together!
First, I'll review “Re-Bye” music video. That music video was pretty clever. The story was there was a girl that was trying to get murdered throughout the video and at first thought you thought it was the siblings. But at the end of the video it reveals that there was a girl that was jealous of the main girl and tried to poison her water, which the sister drops and breaks, and then she tries to make a chandelier fall and break on her, but it is intercepted by the brother. Finally at the end, the brother gets a rifle and fires it in the direction of the girl that is causing all this trouble, but he took the bullet out. The siblings catch the girl and it all ends happily.
I'm not sure what “Re”bye means, but this song is catchy as hell. It has the classic jazz feel going for it which I've noticed YG has been into lately, but of course his last two releases have been the soul of YG Entertainment. This sibling duo is the perfect match for this style of song. It's so good.
Next I'll review “How People Move”. That music video was definitely cute! The toys started attacking them and the video was bright and colorful which is a definite sign that it's AKMU. I'm in love with Soo Hyun's red hair. She pulls it off really well in this video. I did notice a bit from Gulliver's Travels where Chan Hyuk is tied down by all the ropes. If you don't know what Gulliver's Travels is, go look it up. It's a classic.
The song had a jazzy feel to it as well but it was a higher energy, fast paced jazz. It kind of reminded me of their last song, which was a Special Summer Promotional song called “Like Ga Na Da” where they just basically spelled out the Korean alphabet. It had that same kick in your face sound that I love about AKMU. This song was definitely catchy and I can't wait to listen to the album to fall in love with this group all over again.
