The preview is first seen on some Japan TV morning news, instead of some official YouTube channel release. Thanks to SAYURI396 @ youtube, we can all see that too.
And the news anchor has to say things when the music hasn’t ended! Argh …
And @ketchBuring has kindly translated the lyrics into English. It doesn’t sound like a love song. Kind of a cool thing.
I’m so so so happy to see Yonghwa’s closeups in the MV preview, but at the same time I feel very uncomfortable that we don’t see much of the other three boys, especially Jonghyun. I hope it’s just because of the random 10 seconds not revealing the whole picture. I can understand it’s marketing to “use” Yonghwa because he’s more exposure. But is it the other way round that the company exposed him more? Of course there’s something about Yonghwa himself that he’s getting much limelight. As least it looks like the TV stations ask for him. Jonghyun composes and writes lyrics too but it’s been long since a Jonghyun song’s chosen as the title track. Only once actually, in Voice. But this very skewed thing needs to be fixed.
The night when “Because I miss you …” was released. I tweeted (weibo-ed too) that I’m proud to be a fan of Yonghwa’s, shouting how talented he is making such touching music. I received mentions saying things like all CNBLUE boys are talented too, not just Yonghwa. I guess if a fan shouted I’m proud to be a fan of XX (put in names of one of the other three boys), there won’t be such mentions. I deleted my tweet and weibo. Talk about the burden of a Yonghwa fan. Does Yonghwa himself feel the burden?
So it ends up I haven’t talked much about the song/MV itself. CGI? Sophisticated. Catchy chorus. Yonghwa sings in Japanese. Hope his pronunciation has improved.
PS Sorry to be sentimental. But I really need to get things off my chest. What’s the use of a personal blog?
