Lee Joon & Ailee Look Like A Real Couple In Music Video

Solo singer Ailee and MBLAQ's Lee Joon acted as a couple for a music video.

Ailee released the music video for her new song "Singing Got Better" on the 6th. In it, she showed off her acting skills as someone who is in love with MBLAQ's Lee Joon.

Her agency YMC Entertainment stated, "Ailee and Lee Joon met for the first time through this music video shoot. As soon as they met they had to go into acting like lovers, so there were many awkward moments and NG scenes. However, they immersed themselves in heartwarming love scenes to a heartbreaking farewell scene. Their great emotional acting received praise from the staff."

"Singing Got Better" is a song about Ailee and Lee Joon, who fostered a short but beautiful love while doing music together. Later they break up. Thereafter, Ailee succeeds, and relives the painful moments of her past.

Ailee said, "I was really flustered having to start acting in love as soon as we met, but Lee Joon, who has more acting experience, really helped me. Thanks to him I quickly overcame any awkwardness and was able to seriously get into the scene. I really enjoyed the shoot."

Ailee's "Singing Got Better" is a rock ballad song that was written and composed by singer Wheesung. Ailee has been receiving praise for bringing an even better vocal sound with this new song. She will be going into full-fledged activities for her new song, starting with her performance on MBC Music's "Show Champion" on the 8th.

Music Video ReView: Ailee's U&I, Does the Formula Work?

To get this out of the way, I'm just going to start by saying that this song didn't really burst out of the regular Kpop seams. When you first hear it-- and let's say you haven't been tracking her previous songs-- there is nothing superior about it, but it does grow on you after a couple more listens. The songs itself is a hard 7 out of 10. It's catchy, it has a repetitive quality with the lyrics, which is mainly what makes it catchy. And the beat holds it own with a sort of jazzy, bourlesque-ish feel to it.

And that is what makes the music video a solid 8 out of 10. It's consistent, it's glamorous, and it's in line with the song. Everything about this video screams lights and glitter, an explosion of decadent colors that the song might have paled a little in comparison to, but only by a hair's width.

The music video starts off with finesse, just the clack of Ailee's heels (which look fantastic and painful, by the way) and the image of her entering the back room. A phone call resonates and she picks it up, and judging by her unimpressed expression, the lyrics that follow are definitely pertaining to an ex that she no longer cares for because of their constant bickering and fighting, and how all of that is consuming her way too much than a relationship should.

In the video, we also catch some very minor details, like how the video plays off of the lyrics. I don't know exactly how intentional this is, but during the first verse, Ailee sings about how she no longer smiles because of the person she is singing too, and true to her word, she doesn't smile throughout the video until the moment she slides the ring off of her finger-- which I can only assume is a gift of some sort from the ex lover. This scene is later in the video, around the bridge of the song, right after make up finishes her prepping her eyes (which also is right where the lyrics state something about Ailee tired of crying, or having no intention of crying-- details). She slips the ring off, gives her reflection a brief smirk, and then leaves the ring on the table while she proceeds with her life baggage-free.

There's nothing much to say about the dance, Ailee isn't exactly known to be a great dancer. She is, however, a heavy belting singer, and if there is one final thing the song should be credited for, it's the fact that it utilized her vocal range well.

Overall, I'd say this music video deserves a 7 out of ten. What did you guys think?
