I am literally melting here.
I’m probably suffering from post-traumatic fangirl syndrome or something; I don’t know.
The only thing I am well aware of is the fact that I have to still wait another 4 more days for the rest of the album to be released, which to this woman here *points at herself* sounds like a death sentence!
*Intake deep breath*…Now, let us begin…
Today, SM Entertainment finally released the much anticipated EXO MV for “Miracles of December” in both Chinese and Korean. Only 3 members sing in the song, but all members are featured in the MV itself. For the Chinese version Luhan, Chen and Baekhyun sing as a trio, while in the Korean version Luhan is replaced by D.O. I’m assuming that the song are as identical as they can be in both versions, but I will have to check it out once I can grab hold of some translations written for the Korean version.
As of now, I can’t seem to pick one over the other. Both are absolutely flawless in their own way.
As both MVs are pretty much the same thing (apart from the swap of members and the song itself) I will talk about the MVs on a broad scale, and focus if it’s in one particular MV.
“Miracles of December” has been released to the public as a present for EXO fans, which is probably why there is quite a bit of fan-service found within the MVs. The big obvious one pops up early on in both MVs, and was also hinted on within the teasers as well.
Ahhh Kriscasso, you have finally debuted LOL. For the dedicated fans (or the well-knowledged like I am) you may be aware about Kris’s hidden ‘talent’ that he seems to brag about in any given moment of chance. And now, the rest of the members (warning, picture heavy!):
*Swipes sweat away* Whew, that was pretty photo heavy, huh? Imagine how long it took me to just take screenshots of those LOL’
And one thing; talk about being obvious but SM, weren’t you promoting those products a bit too “in-your-face’ much? Come on, you even showed it long enough for me to take a pretty clear shot AND for others to see as well.
And, can we give a moment to acknowledge the fact that the band has also brought back the superpowers from MAMA with the whole “time rewind” power? Hehe, it just seemed to make me smile when I saw it (despite the nasty and sad feels I was having too)
OH OH and the debut/reminder of some member’s acting skills. Chanyeol, you probably had the most heartbreaking item out of the entire band (close behind was probably Kris, where his canvas was actually BLANK…the erase of memories maybe??). And Tao? Gosh, that scene alone probably made everyone go from this:
Anyways, moving onto the actual song.
The song is a soulful, heartfelt ballad with a bittersweet melody that transcends throughout the song. Even without the need of the MVs, we can sense the sadness and tears seeping between the lines. Not only that, due to the powerful vocals and meaningful lyrics, the songs are undoubtedly addictive. Even since I discovered them this morning, both versions have been playing out of my laptop on repeat NONSTOP. Thank god no one is at home right now, otherwise they probably would have told me off AGES ago. Nothing fancy has been used in these songs; the simplicity of it all is just eye-opening. We only need to focus on all their voices, and their voices alone.
WOW ummm I think it’s time for me to put this to rest now, and just go back and continue drooling over the songs whilst trying to distract myself from the fact that these songs won’t be in my hands until Monday…God, the horror!
I’ll be staying on watch to see their live performance tonight, and to see if it’s just the three, or is it a whole group performance ( I doubt it but let’s hope, shall we?)
Hope you all are having a wonderful and lovely day, and I hope to see you all very soon!
