9 Muses is an originally 9-member girl group, now down to 8 members that I knew very little about until their release of “Hurt Locker”. I had heard songs here and there, but “Hurt Locker” really brought them into my attention. My bias of the group is definitely Kyungri because she’s so beautiful and in the “Hurt Locker” music video, she reminded me of Minzy and I love Minzy. Earlier today, they released their music video for their song “Sleepless Night”.
Now I’ve watched the video and I got to say that video was quite aesthetically pleasing. The video was shot in a sepia/black and white tone and lens flares every once and a while. On top of that, the old, retro things such as a grandfather clock and a rotary phone made this video seem dated which was a good feature. The song was very steady paced with a constant down beat going on throughout the song, whether it be by the piano, the drums or the vocals. There was always a down beat being hit. This song seemed more focused on their voices than their dancing abilities seeing as it was a slower paced song. There were a couple of scenes of their dancing in the music video but the majority of the video was focused on the story. Speaking of the story, what exactly happened in this music video? I’m asking that as a real question. I understand that her boyfriend/fiancé/husband left/died/abandoned her and that she was feeling sorrow for that, but in the end, the girl wakes up and finds the bottle of perfume and then sees a girl in her bed. Is that supposed to be her, or is this suggesting lesbianism. Just kind of weird.
That’s my music video review for 9 Muses – Sleepless Night. Overall I enjoyed the song and can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album. I don’t know if a full album review will follow this, but I guess it depends on how busy my schedule is, which it might not be that busy with the semester almost over. Did you enjoy this music video?
In this section of my website, I will review Kpop music videos, albums, songs, and various other things pertaining to Kpop. This will be the main stage of my website. It is where the majority of the action will take place.
