It's no secret that the K-pop industry emphasizes on idols appearing perfect, especially women! Jisoo's fall in DDU DU DDU DU's MV caught the eyes of many fans. Do you think that her striking pink wig shows more than just a gigantic mural in the MV? Read below to find out the important message being her scene!
Blackpink’s ‘DDU DU DDU DU’ music video had the record of being the most viewed music video in 24 hours in 2018. Currently, the global hit holds more than 1.3 Billion views! Yes, Blackpink’s popularity is insane and extends well over the Korean audience.
As soon as it dropped, fans began forming theories about what each scene could mean. Jisoo’s part was the one that stood out the most. For reasons other than Jisoo’s captivating visuals, she was carrying an important message too.
Celebrities are under a very heavy watch. The bar for K-pop idols being ‘flawless’ role-models is very high. Jisoo unveils in her scene that the cameras love her. All attention is on her and it’s positive. Fancy dresses, red carpets, flashing lights all in her favor till one slip up. Literally.
Suddenly, Jisoo falls to the ground! When she gets back up the cameras that once loved her, turned against her. In the video they are symbolized as guns being pointed towards her. Beauty with brains, yeah that’s Kim Jisoo! Insightful, don’t you think?
The star elaborated that they refused to pay attention to the 'Real Jisoo' walking amongst them. They were so busy focusing on the image (painting on the wall) that they have formed of her. “The message is about how people go crazy over celebrity figures and how they will aim at them for mistakes”, Jisoo explained.
‘We wanted to portray a scene that is important and meaningful to us’, Jisoo added.
Female idols in the K-pop industry such as Red Velvet’s Irene, Yeri and Joy, Mamamoo’s Solar and Hwasa, and Twice’s Jihyo have been wrongfully targetted over miniscule actions overhyped into scandals.
