She is back! BoA, the Queen of everything K-pop, has returned to grace us with her presence, but I don't think this is her “comeback”, but merely a Station song seeing as the YouTube video has Station before her name or song title. However, BoA is Queen of everything because she is one of the originals. She got me into K-pop my first time around, back in like 2003/2004. If you don't have at least a little respect for BoA, just get out. Her track “Spring Rain” for SM Station is the subject of my review today and I'm thrilled!
I'm not fully aware of what the content of the music video is supposed to mean, but from what I can guess there is a couple that is so in love and they eventually fall out of love. I understand the video is about relationships, but is the guy a murderer? There were newspaper clippings all over his wall. Is that why they broke up? There's such a prominent and expansive story present in this video but within only 4 minutes. The editing process on this video used a ton of blurring and distortion effects to make the video seem like it was in the past.
As for the song, it actually sounded like some of BoA's older stuff, not like old old, but about around the time of “Only One”. The presence in this song was a bit more dark and eerie however. There seemed to be lingering a secret within the dark and hollow empty spaces of the song. I could go in to details about how the track utilized this and that as far as music terminology and theory go, but I prefer to leave it as an eerie undertone in the song. BoA sounds amazing as always and I can't wait for her to comeback with her 4th mini album.
