After her splendid performance at MMA’s, we finally have Hyuna’s MV for Lip & Hip and in one word, it is bonkers!
While the song is catchy and all that, it is the MV that is stealing the show. Well, let’s take things in order.
Talking about the song, the rapping part is its life. While I was already hooked to it with its first listen in MMA, it does an even better job with the MV. The pre chorus is the best part of the song and the build up to the hook is perfect.
Well, being politically correct, the MV is different from what you expect from a popular Korean song. No wonder there is such a debate on the concept. However,it is nothing new for Hyuna. In fact, she is only upping the ante with every comeback.
I like how the MV talks both literally as well as visually about loving yourself and your body and being confident about it.
I know there are people both for and against it right now for the kind of concept it is. I, in my personal opinion, think it is perfectly suited to the concept of feeling confident of your body and feeling good in your skin. Also I don’t think it is exposing in any way. The nature of the business can take things to the level where this MV would seem like a work of a novice. So we have it settled. There is nothing trashy about the MV. And it is all in just good fun.
On a side note, I think these are exciting times for Kpop. After BTS’ phenomenal success and acts like Hyuna getting appreciation for expanding their music horizons, the genre is seeing prolific leaps in terms of being inclusive of different concepts in one genre. While it is a matter of time before it becomes a norm, it is encouraging to see how the public is becoming accepting of the change.
