Ga-in's Irreversible mv Review

Am I the only one noticing a theme? Gain gets tossed around like a rag doll quite a bit, neh?

From what I can interpret (you're free to give your own theories): Gain is a prostitute/thief who's told to seduce this guy who happens to be a member of the mafia (or is a rich business man?). He buys her freedom (in the beginning [when she gets into his car]) and they live together for a while. When he realizes he can no longer support her, he leaves her a bag of money so that she can make a new life for herself. She can't stand the thought of being without him because he saved her life, so she tries to commit suicide. He catches her and either: a) dies from the impact of the fall; or b) though there is no clear indication, but he could have gotten shot from either another mafia member (not seen on camera) or he could have gotten shot by someone who knew Gain's boss. Another theory is that he could have tried to buy Gain's freedom only to be told no, and killed the boss (blood droplets on his shirt). Either way, Gain finds out that she was freed (and loved) by him because of the necklace in his hand. It was collateral for Gain's boss. If she couldn't get the job done, she wouldn't get it back. He gets it back for her, but she didn't realize this beforehand. She just wanted to be with him, but he didn't want her to get caught up in his world.

Yay! Tango + Korean!
Gain's voice is beautiful as always. There's little to no Spanish influence in Kpop so this was a fresh change from everything that was only dance/techno/hip pop/bubble gum/autotuned to death/give you diabetes sweetness. I hope to hear more of this in the future.

It's 10-11 minutes long. Gain's no actress, so I can only imagine that this was a lot for her to take on. She pulled her parts off rather well considering that it was technically "silent." (she speaks a total of 2-3 lines)
