You can watch "SHINe", "Why So Serious?" and the ending stage all together up above, or you can just watch "Why So Serious" by itself below.
So... I have another confession to make. Yesterday I admitted I wasn't all that into the song "SHINe".
|This is still a no, but I will say hell yes to Onew's pants.|
Well, I also wasn't all that enthused about "Why So Serious?" either. I didn't say anything because I knew what would happen. I would find myself all of a sudden singing and swaying to it as I searched for a video to include in this post and, of course, that is exactly what happened a few minutes ago. Now that I've listened to the song more closely, I have decided that I like it. A lot. :/ I have to laugh because the same thing happened with "Dazzling Girl", which some readers were too happy to point out. In fact, I was called delusional at one point. Lolll... I heart you guys, I really do.
At first I really disliked the whole arena rock/musical theater aspect of "Why So Serious?" (as a fabulous reader called it yesterday), but now I'm all for it. Now that I've read the lyrics I can appreciate that it's been choreographed to look like a musical number in a play. I just wish that SM Entertainment had done a better job conveying that in the mv.
I also like that the boys seem all hyped up and into it while performing, and I'm sure both Onew and Key love that it references their musical theater background. It's a more contemporary version of a song that could've been in the play "Rock of Ages".
Onew's even bringing the Rock of Ages sexy back:
|You're killing me right now.|
So yeah, I've decided it's a fun song and I'm sticking with that. Don't make too much fun of me in the comments, ok? Thanks! :)
When I had my epiphany, I was on the lookout for the lyrics to "Why So Serious?" I found a great video with the Romanized and English lyrics together, which you can take a look at below:
After reading the lyrics I will say that I'm so glad that these guys are finally getting to grow up. I noticed it in Chapter 1 and it's even more noticeable in Chapter 2. I just hope they won't be roped into anymore songs like "Hello" or another concept like this one:
