Everything you need to know about Epik High’s latest MV
An in-depth and exhaustive list of EVERYTHING that we (High Skools @eatyourkimchi) managed to dig out of this MV, over the last week. It was a combined effort of over 20 people - all of whom aren’t Korean, so it wasn’t easy!! xD
Don’t Hate Me is a song for people who have received hate, and feel “Why do people dislike me? Why is it only me?” But if that person could have just one person like them they’d be able to live gladly.
The 15 characters in the Don’t Hate Me MV are the villains the three of us like. “Everybody hates me, but you love me and I love you”-> We thought these characters matched well with this phrase^^ ~ Tablo
honestly, I don’t know how they do it but they seriously have a great deal of charisma.
Gonna just focus on Ukwon here because his stage presence literally kills.
His arms: see that sleeveless shirt he’s wearing? i conclude it’s not legal on him.):
1:17-1:30 - the confidence he exudes is limitless.
1:52-2:05 - it’s crazy, I can’t even take my eyes off him.
2:29-2:35 - here too
throughout the entire performance, if you just focus on him, it’s so clear that he’s practically one with the stage; he ownsthe stage. He knows exactly what he’s doing, he isn’t bothered by how people are looking at him, he’s just focused on doing what he loves - this is the impression I get of him from the performances.
The reason why I’m raving about him rn is because I don’t know where to place him ;~; I’ve liked him for his stage presence since the very beginning (read: Freeze era when he was known for his smile). The problem is, from watching behind-the-scenes and match up (with B1A4), his character off-stage and onstage is very different. It’s weird. He’s extremely quiet and doesn’t like to take the limelight; he doesn’t talk much and is pretty overshadowed by the other members who babble endlessly. He isn’t the same as the other idols I like; far too quiet. Yet, I can’t help but fall for his stage presence. and it’s like crazy because I can’t seem to find a word to describe his character, because it’s so different onstage and off. It’s quite difficult to imagine that such a quiet boy is so powerful on stage. Hence, I really had to drawl over his stage presence; it may seem normal for idols to have such great charisma on stage, but there isn’t many idols who show that they are this quiet off stage. They may be quiet, but they don’t show it on reality shows like yookwon does.
So yea, I don’t know where to place him, as in within the list of my top few biases (his charisma totally gives him a direct entry to that list) or not; I can’t say how much I like him because he seems rather paradoxical imo. but honestly, his stage presence is crazy, I cannot contain myself ;_; yea. ;______________;
P.S. I love how Taeil starts the song with a telescope y so qtbb!
aaaaaaand to end this off, here’s today’s Mcountdown! :DDD
