Taeyeon’s new MV “Rain” will have you dreaming of evenings in the rain with a special someone. With a new short haired avatar Taeyeon is back with another inspiring song to pluck your heart strings.
The MV shows her reminiscing about memories together in the rain with someone. But now the rain has turned gloomy, turned her life into a black and white movie. Her memories are all contained in the jars and tanks as she adds more memories and fills them up to the brim. She fondly looks at them remembering how beautiful the person looked ,soaked in the rain.
She’s surrounded by clutters of different memories. They all get soaked from the “rain” pouring in her memories occupying her mind completely. All she could do that night was miss the person, pain spreading through her with nostalgia. All of her carefully preserved memories slowly starts to fade away.
Her life is bleak and colorless, living only with memories now. “You were my ray of sunshine in a black and white world”, to her that person brightened her life, made it sparkle the way the water in the tank does as she pours some more. The diary contained all of those memories and as soon as it touches the water her world lights up and fills with color. To her dreams were so much more joyful than her bleak reality. The sun comes up and the memories fade away as she wakes up from her dreams in the rain.
The MV will leave you with a slight heartache and fond memories. It is much grounded on the aesthetics. The contrast of the B&W and colored scenes gives just the right impact that the song wants to convey. We have all been nostalgic about our past when it rains and Taeyeon appeals to the soft romantic side of monsoon. While the MV is quite sad, the ray of light at the end leaves us with hope of a brighter day. Each day the painful memories fade a little bit, for better or for worse. So, how did you like this rainy trip down memory lane with Taeyeon?
