On October 13th, DAVICHI dropped the music video of their song ”Love Is”.
This track is very calm and soothing, perfect for the actual Autumn weather. All the instruments and the soft slow beat create a relaxing atmosphere, with Min Kyung and Hae Ri’s voices being a pure delight for our ears. The lyrics deal with love -of course-, trust, and sharing.
Even if it is really beautiful, the song could get a little bit boring. But thanks to the music video, it doesn’t happen. We are shown the actor Lee Jong Suk being all by himself in a gorgeous traditional house. The fact that we hear the noise of his activities (ironing, opening a letter…) or the noise of the rain makes the song sounds like a soundtrack for a drama. Some might find it annoying, but in my opinion it is original and doesn’t bother me.
At the end, we understand why he came to this house on his own and why he got all dressed up: he is actually there to commemorate his father. Lee Jong Suk’s acting skills are amazing. The last scene when he cries for his dad and lights a cigarette for him is really touching and will make your heart feel heavy.
This slow and reflective song is indeed nostalgic but will also make you feel warm. Make sure to listen to it!
