“Bad Guy” MV Ft. Chansung of 2PM
Joo is best known for her 2008 single “Because of a Man” (남자 때문에), but has kind of been put on the back burner in favor of the boy and girl group craze over the past few years. After almost three years away from the Korean music scene, Joo is finally back with her first mini album entitled “Heartmade” and a MV for the title track “Bad Guy” featuring fellow label-mate Chansung of 2PM.
Beautiful love scenes with warm colors and sad breakup scenes in a sterile black and white house are tied together with the use of one single object, a toy bubble gun. The video mixes the childish (playing with the toy bubble gun and then using that same bubble gun to destroy the house) with the serious (finding out that the love of your life is cheating on you) and does it very well.
I’m glad Joo is finally back and I hope she can finally get the recognition she deserves. Her voice is amazing and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs from her album.
The album will be released in Korea on Jan 4th.
