Lee Seung Gi’s MV “And Goodbye” Ranks #1 on KBS2 MV Chart

On a KBS2 broadcast in the early morning of the 24th called ‘MV Bank2-Stardust’, Seung Gi’s MV ranked #1 on a chart titled ‘MV Chart 7’ for the 4th week of June.  So happy to hear this good news after the unfortunate incident with the damaged film. It just goes to show a one minute video from Lee Seung Gi is powerful enough to outrank any full length MV.  Congratulations, Seung Gi!

2015.05.25 Photos From Lee Seung Gi’s MV Set

These photos come from the blog of a stylist who was on set the day Seung Gi filmed his MV for “And Goodbye”. She expressed how hard everyone worked to film in addition to the fact that they were up all night. It’s a regrettable situation and again my heart aches reading accounts from MV staff.  Please visit her blog to see a short clip of the car going up in flames, the highlight scene of the MV.

Seung Gi, with whom we’ve always been together since his debut~~He came back with an album after 2 years and 7 months!!! Had a mental breakdown while playing the consonant game ㅎㅎㅎ The company manager and team were thrown into utter chaos, especially the CEO who came!ㅎㅎㅎ And Goodbye with an investigation concept “Snap” (she uses the Korean onomatopoeia for a camera’s shutter sound when taking a photo to describe how Seung Gi’s MV incident can be summarized)

[Starcast] “And, CPR”…Lee Seung Gi, Bringing a Dead M/V Back to Life”

There is an English translation of an exclusive Dispatch article that covers the story of Seung Gi’s MV filming for “And Goodbye”. Although it’s a bit awkwardly translated, with some parts either being completely omitted or mistranslated, it will help you to get the big picture of what the official MV would’ve looked like if the film hadn’t been damaged. The original Korean article was published around 1pmKST today and I tweeted translations highlighting the main points. I am a bit disappointed to see that the English version of the article misses some of these points. I will post the link to the English article here along with a compilation of my tweets from this afternoon.

STARCAST ARTICLE IN ENGLISH

My tweets:

It wasn’t possible to restore special effect filming not seen in other MVs. We think it’ll be difficult with what is left.” (Hook Ent.)

MV’s highlight scene was the car explosion. Including LSG, this scene was the most anticipated. “It’s the first of various scenes in my MV.”

SG on explosion scene: please look forward to it. Also CG scenes. Heart-wrenching breakup scene w/ model in front of blue screen.

LSG had stoic expression portraying the heart of a man who has to leave his love. With slight tears in his eyes, looks seriously at model.

Female model: “Why did you do that?!” LSG: “Sorry.”

That day, Seung Gi was filming greetings for his fans. He even took a selca.

gift“Regrettably, Dispatch was present that day when the MV was filmed”. Seung Gi’s photo caption says, “Still, smile”

smileMV filmed 5/25 in a wasteland in Youngjongdo, Incheon. “But for LSG, this day’s filming will have to be left only as a memory. So many memorable scenes that could be watched over and over again.”

My final tweet:

Thank you Dispatch for giving us an inside look at what we could’ve seen and the hard work Seung Gi & staff put into the MV. My heart aches.

Lee Seung Gi’s 6th Album MV “And Goodbye” by Dispatch

Credit: Dispatch

English lyrics:

Words that your small lips first said to me
Hello, those words were so nice to hear
I think that’s when we started
I think that’s when we became a we

When I walked you home
And was going to go back
Words that made my heart flutter
Now goodbye goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, the words goodbye
It doesn’t mean the end
Because we’re under the same sky
Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But in my heart, only you live

It was a short time but there were so many memories
Love that never changes is always touching
Today isn’t the end
Got it? So don’t cry

Where you are in the world
I can find you
So don’t worry
Just for a moment, goodbye goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, the words goodbye
It doesn’t mean the end
Because we’re under the same sky
Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But in my heart, only you live

Don’t forget me, don’t forget me, don’t forget me
Don’t forget me, don’t forget me
Even after spring days without me pass

Goodbye, goodbye, I say goodbye
But my heart will always blossom a flower that resembles you
I love you, I love you, the words I love you
Only you and no one else will hear them

Lee Seung Gi’s MV “And Goodbye” One Minute Version Released ~ BTS Story Behind the Making of This MV

Hook Entertainment finally released the MV for Lee Seung Gi’s title song, “And Goodbye” from his 6th Album less than 10 minutes ago at 12:00 noon KST.  It is only a minute long and gives us more than teaser #1 but still leaves us hanging.  Originally, Hook intended to release the MV along with the digital album on the 10th, but due to unfortunate damages to the original film, it was not possible for the editing team to create a full length video.  What they find regretful is that there were many special scenes filmed but because parts of the film were damaged, they found themselves having to create a MV with what was left.  According to a spokesperson, “Although we tried to do a good job editing, it was difficult to make a full length MV with the amount of film we had left.  Because it was a situation where both the digital tracks and physical album were released, there wasn’t enough time to re-film. The quality dropped and we debated over whether it was a correct decision to reveal a MV where the story wasn’t properly told.”

However, they couldn’t let down fans who were waiting for the full length MV.  Eventually, Lee Seung Gi’s agency decided to edit the remaining portions of the film and release a one minute version on the 12th.  Although the film was damaged, it was a decision made out of consideration for the fans who have been waiting for the video.  According to a spokesperson, “As expected, Lee Seung Gi is feeling very sorry towards his fans. He wanted to present them with a good music video.”

Please don’t forget to livestream KBS2 at 6:30pmKST tonight for Seung Gi’s first comeback performance on KBS2 Music Bank! 😉 Link for live streaming: http://www.olweb.me/kbs-2-korea-live
