It's not a new thing that Big Bang release music videos which contains of deep and meaningful message in their albums.
On July 1st Big Bang have their comeback with 'SOBER'. The song then lately known containing some meaningful and deep message within, aside of the catchy beat and melody.
In this post, the KpopChartNet redaction team would like interpreting the meaning behind the fancy MV based on the lyrics and the scene.
Are you ready? Let's check out our observation result below!
As in the first scene of the MV is the appearance of G-Dragon. The leader first seen to be in a small space inside his room and suddenly shifted to a green field.
In the scene it is as if G-Dragon is building fantasy of his own world. It is symbolized by the scene where he blow out some smoke from a certain device, while 'smoke' interpret 'dream' or 'fantasy'.
Further, G-Dragon also pictured to fantasize having a beautiful girlfriend just like guys commonly wanted in the scene. The smile he showed in the scene refer to the happiness he feel despite of it's just on his fantasy.
Nonetheless aside of the picture of G-Dragon's happiness as if he owns everything in his life, his life is just pathetic. This is represented by the lyrics which said "Stop acting like you’re all that, You’re actually the most pathetic".
"This Is Your God" seen written on bunch of papers which is symbolizing 'money' in the MV. Through the scene Seungri portrayed someone who is actually obsessed to wealth that he dreams of buying everything and spend all the money he could.
In the scene of the money partying a board of menus can be seen, which consists of 'excitement', 'pride', 'lust', 'joy' and many others on the list that he could 'buy' with his money.
However in the lyrics Big Bang expresses "If you only chase after money, power and fame Your crotch is gonna rip and you’re gonna fall".
The next scene on the screen is Taeyang in the room of smoke shower which imply the conditions of someone who is lulled by their overdosing fantasy. In the scene it is shown that Taeyang is trapped by his own fancy which he ended up can't bear.
The lyrics also said "Hey doctor doctor, please save me because I’m about to go insane" and "Hey taxi taxi, take me away because this place is too hard to be in".
And again Taeyang seems trapped in his own mind which in the scene he seen to choked to the overdosing smoke (daydream) makes him hard to breathe.
"I want to believe" can be seen written on a water tower in T.O.P's part. He is portrayed as someone who put a faith in his dream even though it is considered 'childish' to people around him.
The 'childish' dream is depicted in the scene where he playfully fighting a goat, flip the car with a super power and his playful activities which can be seen in the MV.
In the song T.O.P also sings "The world is cold to me. People’s eyes are prickling on me. I seem like an adult but I’m really a child that’s really tall. My young dreams are just faded fantasies. My mood is like a vast wilderness. People don’t understand me. So I just wanna lose it without even knowing."
In the MV Daesung play as someone who is tired and sick of the real life job and life. He then run away from the stress by dreaming.
In his scene Daesung fantasize himself as a drummer, while his singing part saying "Time is so damn slow, I’m just growing old, I live like I’m dead. I have so many damn things to do but I have nothing that I want to do" and "It’s hard for me to be sober (stay awake) I can’t do anything. I hate being sober (living the real life)".
However Big Bang also show us how to dream in the right way which is not just an empty fantasy. How? By setting the goal and right direction to help it to be coming true.
The 'DREAMS' sign on the picture above symbolized the dream that we are aiming for and to achieve we will need to process in the right way as like it is symbolized by the 'One Way' sign in the scene.
While the scene where Big Bang members run through a goalpost interpret that we must have a right purpose and way to set on behalf of chasing our dream. Otherwise we will ended up lost in the dream like Seungri in the video. It can be seen that nobody remain to stay along him since he chased his dream in the wrong purpose.
And lastly after achieving the dream and goal we set don't be afraid to set another goal and run for it. Just to keep in mind that you have to do it in the right way.
So, are you ready to chase your dream in the right way with Big Bang?
