HyunA saving that crappy Monday
This live performance for the Melon Awards is already legendary… 🤣
The magic happens around 4min35s…
And the MV for Lip & Hip is out too now ➜
From Reddit since I’m too lazy to write about the clever things in this MV:
Oh my god this is perfect. Aside from the fact that Hyuna looks stunning, that makeup is amazing and such a breath of fresh air, and the styling marries flattering and crazy to a perfect degree, the MV is so clever too.
It’s not just senseless sexy (though I certainly would not have said no to that, Hyuna can make anything worth watching just by being on camera honestly), there’s a story and message to it. The dissonance between the Hyuna in the room reaching towards all of these romantic and sexual things on a journey to figure out what sexuality means to her. Her constant obsession with the physical points at themes like coming of age and female sexual awakenings, things that Korean society is generally not open about. There are constant nods to the dance and sexy segments being fantasies and dreams of the Hyuna in the room. A dancer’s back becomes a teddy bear, a cigarette becomes a chip, the red panties end up being boring nude in real life (with a cheeky, pun intended, nod at a nude butt), waking up after squishing the boobie tomatoes. She holds an image of pineapple boobs in front of her, then curiously looks into her own shirt to find her own cleavage. She kisses the tv after seeing a couple making out. The ripping of the rbaces as a coming of age symbol. Everything points to this personal journey of maturity.
God it’s amazing. This MV is everything I wanted from her and more, and right in line with her flirting with symbolism and social commentary in Babe. Hyuna is on fire this year.
