JYJ Junsu proves that he is not ‘Uncommitted’ to music

I am reviewing this video a little late but I quite liked the vocals of Junsu in this video. Apparently ‘Uncommitted’ involved some nice production with some hotshot people from west and Junsu had once again proved his vocal excellence with this video.

The song is completely in English and the lady who starred in the video is also not an Asian plus the video had this whole English song vibe ! Yet why does this come under K Pop?? Ofcourse because Junsu, a hot Asian K Pop singer, belting out the sad lyrics ultimately means that this is a K Pop Song.

‘Uncommitted’ is a good song but there are slight factors which could have been tweaked and some which could have been underused.

Here is my review,

SONG:

I give my full votes to the song. YEY!!! Junsu’s vocals were awesome need i say that? The song was catchy and maybe not your typical K song with 80% Hangul and 20% English but was quite nice. His voice had that sexy silky feel which suited the mood of the song well.

The lyrics themselves were simple and angsty.

She said I couldn’t be committed
She said I’m too much of a player
Come on

Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Uncommitted
Ey, ey

It was all a dream
Reality was far from
the safe picture she painted for me
She told me I was the one and I believed
until the dream dissipated so suddenly

I don’t know why she was so compelled to leave
Something was messin’ with her psychology
I’m confused, she’s sayin’ something’s wrong with me,
But how can I fix something I cannot see?

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

How could this be, she’s telling me
I will never let her be my everything
She said I’m a player and I’ll never change
I feel that I’m ready to leave the game.

She said she could’ve never trusted a player like me
but baby that was part of my history
she’s telling me breaking hearts is a part of me
it’s like it’s in my system and it would never leave

She said, “You’re not ready
Baby, you’re not ready for the real thing”
She told me that I’d be
unfaithful and I cannot believe

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

I’m committed

Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right
Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

She said you can’t be committed
I said baby I don’t really get it
She said you’re not the right type
only good for one night,
you never stay committed to me

So Junsu and his girlfriend are having a couple fight all cos Junsu is a player and he doesn’t like commitment *tsk typical men!!* He doesn’t understand how he can change his ways and he doesn’t even realise his  mistakes. He then slowly comprehends his mistakes but even by the end of the song he has not come up with a solution.

VIDEO:

The video and the song go hand in hand. There are three important scenarios throughout the video,

Living together couple: 

I think that the girl/baby whom he is singing about in his song is the blonde girl who we see is living together with Junsu *lucky girl sigh* There are some scenes of how they happily spend their time together. They are happy until we see them slowly braking apart. We see the girl crying and appealing Junsu which clearly shows her confrontation with him.

This is something which many can relate to cos there wont be any relation in this universe where confrontations have been not faced. So that scene is quite a normal and touching one.

Clubbing Couple:

There was another portion in the video. The Living together couple had different hair like Junsu had blusih green hair and the girl was blonde. But when the scene moves onto the club scene we see Junsu has brownish black hair and the girl who is dancing with him is also a brunette. This can mean either the first courting stage of the lead couple. The present couple’s past when they fell in love with each other and went on happy dates to clubs. Or it can mean that Junsu is indeed a player who is cheating on the blonde girl with the brunette.

I felt that the second scenario is more apt.. Cos of this part of the song..

Uncommitted, I’ll never admit it
and then i’ll never get it but somehow she could be right

It does look like he is admitting he is uncommitted and his cheating on his girl with another person can be an indication of his fear for commitment.

Deserted Couple:

There is another portion of the video where the brown haired Junsu and the brunette are together in a desert like background.

Does it signify that Junsu has been deserted by his love? Because he is uncommitted he has lost his true love and is now left with the girl who he preferred over his love. But is he happy? Nope.. Junsu doesn’t look too happy with his choice and so atlast all the cheating and non-committedness is just more reason for heartache and depression *dude what did i tell you? Stop cheating and get committed!!*

Well I think the video was quite straightforward and depicted Junsu’s relationship very well. His voice was awesome but he has to work on his accent. Yep I had a hard time to understand it the first time around but then it was quite ok as I replayed it.

Another thing which really bothered me in this video was the amount of smoke used? Does it like depict that Junsu’s relation is all smoky? or does it point that the earth is being increasingly polluted nowadays LOL!!

Sometimes effects and props must be used effectively and I felt that the smoky/foggy effect was overused. The colouring of the video was by itself sober and it did project the effect of sadness and remorse. I did not understand the reason for smoke to clog the screen too!! Come on I could not look clearly at Junsu kekeke!!

‘Uncommitted’ was quite an enjoyable song with a nice beat which can be easily sung along with. GOOD JOB !!!
