Music Video
In these videos from 2011 and the music video ->this is war, they all show the "cool"and "strong" side of the band.
My opinion
-Love the story
-See the hard work they put into the music video

-I think the English version is a bit weird (like korean version better)
My Opinion
Love the story
See the hard work

Like korean ver. better
My Opinion
Love the Story
Like the dance moves
See the hard work put into mv
Understand the story better after researching

Don't like english version lyrics (like korean better)
This pop music video shows the band's serious image to increase their popularity. The relationships between lyrics and visuals and music and visuals makes a more powerful emotion to viewers. Little visual symbols are used to show more meaning in the music video. Therefore this video contributes to the serious and loving image/side that the band has.
