IU – Eight (Prod.&Feat. SUGA of BTS)
Another hit for IU, with the help of Suga. Don’t be fooled by the music. The lyrics and meaning are actually quite sad and that contrast is the whole point of the song.
Some are saying it’s a song about Gu Hara (Kara), Sulli (f(x)) and Jonghyun (SHINee) who all took their lives recently. And she was close with all of them. 😢
From YT, without corrections… ⤵️
“those “happy” scenes are IU’s vision on an island called “orange island” where everyone on it are happy and live with no worries, it’s an imagination place created in IU’s mind, in the beginning of mv, she was attached to the machine and it asked “save all your memories? yes | no”, in the end, she chose “yes” despite those hardship and tragedies that happened in her life. “the song talks of wanting to run away to an imaginary place where everything is great bc reality is so grim and its interesting how the last line in the lyrics is “if it’s a nightmare, then I never want to wake up” but just as she sings that, she opens her eyes in the mv”
