I wasn’t planning on posting this at first, but I really liked this one KPop video by a lesser-known artist by Red Roc. It’s dark and intense, features the awesome T.O.P. from Big Bang, and has a surprise ending:
If you notice at the end, the girl in the photos is someone different. Truly, you reap what you sow. Speaking of which, there is a yojijukugo in Japanese, 自業自得 (jigō jitoku) that means the same thing, and in Korean they have the phrase 자업자득 (saeob sadeug) which seems equivalent. It’s likely both phrases are derived from the same Chinese source, though I am speculating.
Anyhow, I’ve known people in real life who have have been in mutually destructive relationships like this (minus the baseball bat). It’s really sad to watch because it also hurts those around them too. And in the end it doesn’t bring any satisfaction; it just makes the wounds bleed worse and longer to heal.
P.S. Credit goes to Eat Your Kimchi for finding this song. 🙂
