Solo songwriter Dabit has finally come back after being away for almost nearly a year. The Korean-American artist appears back on the music scene and has returned this fall with a new song and music video titled “Up & Down.” In his return, Dabit comes charmingly to sweep away a special someone featured in his warm and delightful video.
Dabit wakes up to the ringing of an alarm and hesitates to get out of bed (like most of do) but, still manages to get up as he fumbles to the restroom. After gusting up he flashes a quick yet adorable smile and goes out to get some fresh air before meeting with his lovely lady friend. When Dabit is sitting next to this girl he reaches over to hold her hand but, she innocently pulls back and only smiles at his gesture. However, we can see that prince charming over here can’t help himself and keeps his gaze upon his sweet crush. Suddenly, out of nowhere a rabbit pops out while the two were enjoying each others company. I thought it was a little weird although the life-size was adorable but, it felt so random. The bunny does play an important role by bringing these two lovebirds together. The ending was mysterious as we see witness Dabit and his crush stare into eachothers eyes and then the bunny pops-up again which blocks our view so we don’t know if they kissed or hugged but, it’s evident they both share mutual feelings for one another as they walk away holding hands.
The video for “Up & Down” definitely took a lighthearted approach that showed the sweet and cute moments when first meeting someone you like. The director and editors of the video made it look dreamy and overall delightful with its warm and faded colors. Also both Dabit and Hayana really helped amplify the sweetness of the song with their vocals. I recommend checking out his music video, especially if you like something more simple and sweet.
