Epik High“s latest MV for the highly provoking and sensational track, “Born Hater,” features talented rappers, such as Beenzino and Verbal Jint, who clearly have had enough of their haters. Unlike the track, which straightforwardly confronts their haters head on, the MV has a much deeper meaning in its setting, props, as well as the characters that each rappers portray than meets the eye.
The video is shot in a vertical 9:16 format which is gaining popularity due to numerous people recording video footage using their cell phones. Perhaps there”s an allusion to being a “born hater” means you have a narrow perspective or maybe the bathroom set was just small and a vertical format worked better?
The setting of the MV is a bathroom stall in which the dirtiest and the juiciest stories are unveiled. Remember that scene in which that actress or actor finds out something that they shouldn”t have about someone else while they are in the bathroom stall? Yeah, it”s something like that. It can also be seen as a place of sanctuary where the deepest self-reflections and other thoughts take place. And with one flush, all the stress and negativity flows down the drain.
Have you ever wanted to go to karaoke with Epik High? That would be awesome, right? Well, they invite you to the karaoke room with a new video featuring Younha as the four of them relax and jam out to their track, “We Fight Ourselves.”
This live video seems almost like a studio version because of their perfect rapping and vocals, showing they need no special equipment to sound that good. Check it out above!
