Jang Keun Suk portrays the sad love life of a celebrity with his MV ‘Stay’

I was literally blown away…

I have listened to this song before but I never guessed it could be so beautiful and capable of moving viewers. Jang Keun Suk has strayed away from the path he paved in his last few music videos like Let Me Crazy, Crazy Crazy Crazy where the set was gloomy and doomy and he kept singing along with very strong electrical background. Infact his voice tends to get submerged by the heavy electrical music.

But with Stay Sukkie showed what he is good at. FEELING!

Jang Keun Suk is a genius when it comes to this. He is not a acting star for nothing as he has proved with scores of dramas, movies. Now he also proves he can bring that genius touch to his music videos too.

I Hereby declare STAY as my most favorite Suk MV of all times. Cos am more of an acoustic ballad type than the rock/metal kind *ahem letmecry cough*

Enough rambling and lets get movin!!!

SONG:

Here is the translated lyrics to the song Stay… It is a Japanese song from his album “Just Crazy” but as he is a Korean product this Hallyublog will be talking about this. jeez whatever Sukkie does I will review it..Be it Chinese, Japanese, English or Tamil (last one I wish)

If I put a glass of water in those days
Do Nijin transparent storage

Like sand slipping through your hands going down this
Time I will not go back anymore

There she had to stay where I will not stay

Passing each other feelings can not reach
You along on parallel lines
slow slow gone
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
Come true that you’re here I season
Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

From the night sky and I go misty eyes moist
Glitter-drenched memory

As the snow with you to erase footprints
Time flows incessantly

There she had to stay where I will not stay
Passing each other feelings can not reach
Are you so slow slow gone on parallel lines
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
I was still in the season when you’re here
Still remains Tachidoma~tsu
Here here here
(Hands stray) or from the time
From some time it (farther)
Not be touched
Are you so slow slow gone on parallel lines
I just wanna stay, yes I have to stay
Come true that you’re here I season
Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

This maybe not an exact translation but I think many of us can get the general meaning.

It is a sad love song.. *Gosh this is my third straight sad love song to be reviewed..Is this not a good time for lovers? That XX check, Uncommitted Check and now Stay Check*

This is from Sukkie’s viewpoint and I just want to say that the lyrics are just like a poem. A very sad poem. He is talking about his love he lost. His love has left him. And I guess there is no particular reason it just happened as time passed by.

As the snow with you to erase footprints
Time flows incessantly

He does try to forget and continue with his life but he finds it difficult as he is reminded of her always. That is the place where Stay comes. This song means that Jang Keun Suk cannot move along and he stays in the old memories.

Look how he depicts that..

Even now I do not wake up yet
Here here here I have to stay

From the night sky and I go misty eyes moist
Glitter-drenched memory

He is filled with tears as he is not able to overcome the memory which is drenched with glitter which means the memories were golden and precious.

Jus one word WOW!!

Such a meaningful song. I can feel how much he is aching.

But since this is from the guy’s view point we dont know how the girl is faring. Maybe the music video will shed light on that.

Overall I have to say that I am very much satisfied with the song. The lyrics jus blew me and made me all teary eyed.

VIDEO:

What one would have expected was a typical boy loves girl, they breakup and boy cries scenario. Asia Prince always does it with style.

He did not take any ordinary guys life to act it out. He depicted his own life. That was what amazed me. The beginning of the video had Sukkie and the cute adorable lady take a couple picture. And then the video slowly whites out and then we see the couple out on a date. He looks happy and she looks charming in a straw hat. Next scene we have Sukkie thinking seriously as he travels in his car!!

SO That was jus a memory. His car passes the girl and she doesnt see him which shows that they have grown far apart.

Then comes the most amazing part of the video to me. We see Sukkie walk out of his car with a sad face and a dozen cameras does the flashing. So it means that Jang Keun Suk acts as Jang Keun Suk for this video. As in this video is like telling his own love story. How tough a celebrity’s love life is. He had to keep a poker face in front of the camera and then he goes on to practise his lines probable for a drama/movie. That is the difference between a normal person and an Idol/Star. If normal people break up they can watch sad K dramas, wallow in tears and eat loads but an idol has to just move on.

Maybe He/She cannot pick up the broken pieces of their heart and no one can do it for them. Pain is inevitable and there is less chance for comfort.

He just continues while the video shows the girl jus sitting idly and gazing. She is not the happy bubbly girl when she was with Sukkie. Yes she too had changed but unlike Sukkie she is not a celebrity and thus she doesn’t have to put on fake smiles for countless photoshoots/interviews.

At the end of the day Sukkie finally rests around midnight when he is suddenly filled with an urge to go look for his girl. Then comes the sad part. He starts running to find her. He goes to her room and tries to find her but she is not there. Maybe she moved away. He starts running and as he runs all those buried bitter-sweet images come bursting out. How he used to spend time with her in a leisurely way in their home. I guess no clubs or theme parks cos he is a celebrity. But I really love the harmony they showed. The mood in the home was relaxing and romantic. Though they were cooking something it had a domestic feel.

This is where I have to appreciate Suk. Whoever is the opposite lady Jang Keun Suk is capable of bringing out the romantic emotions more than anyone else. He can immediately make the love to shine through. The audience can feel the chemistry which is visible so brightly.

He keeps running around searching for her. He did bring a bouquet but that was forgotten at her home. And then he finally ends up in a bridge which makes him cry. He cries so beautifully. Anyone who has seen Love Rain/YAB/MMM or any of his other dramas can attest to that. This man can cry with feeling I tell you.

Why was he crying? Because of a really sweet memory he had in that place. On one of their dates the girl’s straw hat flew off and he secured it again on her head with care. He cant control his tears and realizes that only he has been ‘staying’ while she is no longer his.

The epilogue of the video was really touching. Here  I was blindly hoping that as he ran he will meet her on the streets and jus hug and everything will be right as rain. NOPE!! That is not how it is in Celebworld. He jus looks at the photo they took previously and gently caresses her image.

Does this mean that he will never forget her? He will not be able to love? Or that he has decided to move on and thus say his farewell the last time?

NO IDEA! Cos the video closes with that scene…Talk about a cliffhanger. I was like “Show the preview of next episode dude” when I realized this is a music video DUHHHH!!” Awesome!! We just have to settle for a sad ending unless there is a sequel to ‘Stay’ called Lets Play tsk!!

A last note.. His sexy and masnly voice suits ballads like bread and butter and the combo of his voice and Stay is just as yummy!!

This is an awesome song on a rainy day or when youre in a mood to remember your past!

Thats it FOLKS!! BYERS!!!
