Today, I’m finishing up my list of Kpop music videos I need to review. Hopefully I will have time to get to some of the non Kpop music videos you have sent me. I feel bad because I haven’t gotten around to them in a while. Today I will be reviewing music videos from Jackson of Got7, Zhoumi of Super Junior-M and Amber of f(x).
What a laid back music video “Dawn of Us” by Jackson Wang was. Blue waters, sunny beaches, beautiful girls. It had it all. It was just a music video about Jackson relaxing and enjoying himself. At the end of the video, there was some behind the scenes footage of the filming of the video and honestly it looked like it was so much fun.
The song atmosphere matched that of the video. The beat was a Tropical Trap beat with chill Lo-Fi elements. Jackson didn’t seem to go in as hard on this track which is nice sometimes because you can’t always be pissed off or angry or sad or upset. Sometimes, there are happy moments. We see that in this video. We see Jackson being happy.
I really enjoyed this music video by Zhoumi. I personally don’t really like Super Junior but “I Don’t Care” was a music video about the effects of one person leading into the relationships and interactions between other people. It’s like on How I Met Your Mother, there was the Chain of Screaming. Where one person yells at someone, so that person yells at someone else and so on. Zhoumi’s music fixed all of that in the end.
The song was a lot better than I expected as well. It turned out to be more of an Alt Dance Ballad. There were moments in the song that I would consider “epic” because of how intense the music was getting but not only that but more the emotion being conveyed at that moment in the song. It is a beautiful song and I’m glad I checked it out.
What a beautifully done music video. Amber never fails to impress me. “Lifeline” showed two male dancers on stage under the spotlight. The video switch between scenes of the dancers and Amber in a red room with a black seated booth behind her. I think the message being conveyed here is that sometimes having someone by your side gives you strength that you wouldn’t have had if not for that person. It’s a beautiful message. I love Amber.
The song was interesting because there were parts that were empty and really emphasized Amber’s vocals and then there was the glitch effect chorus with the low vocal part echoing throughout the main lines of the chorus. I think the low vocal effect was a bit overdone but the song still sounded good. Amber has matured so much with this album release. I’m so proud of her.

My Quick Reviews are conglomerates of music video reviews. For instance, if there are several releases in a single day that are all related or somewhat related, I will do a Quick Review segment.
