The allegory goes as follows: A man sits in a cave facing the wall of the cave and sees the light of a fire. The light is the concept of the fire. It isn't actually fire, just the concept. The fire sits behind the man. The fire is representative of the sun which is outside of the cave. The sun is the true concept whereas the fire is a representative concept and the light is just an image. It is in no way the fire. I know I didn't explain that very well but essentially, each thing is representative of another. The true concept exists only as the one true idea. For example, if I had a picture of a chair, that image represents the chair I can sit on, but the chair I sit on is not the idea thought up by the man who invented the chair. It's a copy.
How does this relate to the video? Well the camera is the image. It isn't the actual events that took place. Wendy was actually there, therefore she would be the representative concept. Baek A Yeon and the guy are the true concept because they are the people the events are happening to. I may have just confused you all, but there's a little Critical Theory lesson for you. You're welcome.
As for the song, it was a ballad which I expect from SM Station. However, the song was full and powerful which is unique from some of the other ballad songs Station has done in the past. Having two power vocals in the same song is an incredible thing and it was executed well. You would think with both voices being so powerful that there would be some sort of struggle for power or struggle to be the loudest or most emotional. But that didn't exist in this song. Both singers are exceptional and deserve all the attention they get and having both of a single is a brilliant idea. Like I said earlier, this collaboration should have been done a long time ago.
