2NE1 Wows Public with Happy and Come Back Home

Youtube

YG Entertainment’s girl group, 2NE1 wows the public with two fierce music videos. “Happy” and “Come Back Home” reached more than a million views on YouTube just within 24 hours of release.

The release of both videos were delayed due to a technical difficulty for the “Come Back Home” MV. A statement was release by YG Entertainment last week. On the other hand, the video for “Happy” was already shown to fans during 2NE1′s “All or Nothing” concert. Finally, on March 3rd at exactly 2:01 PM KST both music videos were released for fans all over the world.

Let’s talk about Happy

The song itself is not that happy but somewhat there. If you listen to the lyrics or if we translate it, it says something like this:

Without you, I’m not happy but I hope you’re happy
I’ll watch over you from afar
Without you, I’m not happy but I hope you’re happy
I’ll resist all the memories

Be happy and forget me
I hope you’re H-A-P-P-Y
Be happy and forget me
I wish you’re H-A-P-P-Y

Meanwhile, the video evokes a positive and moving-on-without-you stage and upbeat feeling. The clothes and make-up were colorful. We have to thank the American fashion designer, Jeremy Scott for that. Of course, the girls were playful. They walked in full confidence and simply enjoyed the shoot. With those clothes, make up and music, who wouldn’t? Not to mention, the graphics were pastel-rich and quirky. Everything was just fantastic making the message of the song more positive.

Come Back Home

The music and video is dark but full of meaning. Yes, it’s full of meaning and metaphor which may vary on a person’s insight. If you search online like blogs and simple comments, you’ll read different ideas which mean that I also have my own. Here it goes.

As mentioned, there are many symbolisms within the video and it’s difficult to point out each. So as a whole, I can say that each person has his or her own “Virtual Paradise”. I’m sure we do not have the same “Virtual Paradise” because it can be a type of dream, idea or imagination. It can also be the internet itself wherein we create a different us, a happier, wealthier, powerful us.

Why, you ask? Because that is a virtual place, a place others cannot see us as we cannot see them. There we can pretend something we are not. And this, in turn becomes a habit which also becomes a problem. We get addicted to it in a negative way leaving the important things aside.

We get addicted to the bad habits. Instead of using technology or that idea, dream or whatever into good use, we do not. We literally kill ourselves and others as well. We thought it is a place of solitude but actually we escape from reality. Don’t get me wrong. It is okay to escape reality just make sure you know when to come back home.
