Happy Valentine’s Day, Readers! As we know it, everything excessive is not good, right? But when it comes to love, is it still be considered as overrated? Is it still okay if love makes us addicted? Is it still okay if love makes us overdose? All I can say is, love can never be overrated. If it is, then it isn’t love; it’s called an obsession. In its right amount, love is never overrated. It might make you overdose, but it won’t kill you. Never be afraid of the overdose, because love is indeed an addiction; It’s Okay, This Is Love.

I drew you in closer with all I had, now I can’t turn it back. This is clearly a dangerous addiction, so bad, no one can stop her. Her love, the only one thing I want is her love. Her fatal fantasy makes me feel like I’m drunk with ecstasy. She wants me, she’s got me, she hurts me, what else can be better than this?” –EXO, Overdose (중독)

Time surely flies that now we’re already in the middle of February. So let’s heating it up with a song titled “Overdose (중독)”, performed by South Korea’s infamous boy group, EXO. It’s the title song of EXO’s third studio EP, which was released on May 7th 2014 in two languages edition: EXO-K’s Korean version and EXO-M’s Mandarin version. The EP reached more than 600,000 pre-orders prior to its release, making it the most pre-ordered EP in history. The title track achieved an all-kill across over nine real-time charts, only in two hours after the release. The electro dance pop song also made EXO the highest charting Korean male group act on the Billboard 200.

“Overdose (중독)” is a song about a crazy-in-love boy; an insane head-over-heels kind of love. He is drown in it and can’t go back, totally trapped in a dangerous addiction of love. He is drunk with it and can’t stop, totally overdosed in fatal ecstasy of love. Can’t escape yet he likes it, he enjoys it, so out of control. “I feel you inside me, seeing you makes me want you even more. After my breath quickens and chokes, I feel a shiver and then a sigh. Her love is like poison to me, a destiny I can’t escape. My blood gets hotter and she controls all of me. She wants me, she’s got me, she hurts me; I keep thinking and thinking about you.” She already got him. No matter how it hurts, it feels great at the same time. “Everyone around keeps asking me whether I’ve changed; it’s like you’re nailed into my heart, my world is all about you. I can’t stop, I’m already filled with you. Right now, this moment, you’re in my heart.” It’s like a sickness and he knows he needs a doctor; the doctor of love, someone who can teach him how to control, how to not being addicted, how to overcome the overdose; though it seems impossible. “Someone call the doctor, hold me and tell me; love is a sickness, an addiction, overdose. It’s getting harder to control as time goes by, I’m falling deeper into her. Too much, it’s you, your love, this is overdose.”

The song was composed and arranged by The Underdogs, with the Korean version’s lyrics were written by The Underdogs and Kenzie. On May 2nd 2014, the music video was premiered on Mnet channel. Beside all the achievements that the song and the EP had gained, “Overdose (중독)” held a very special meaning for all EXO-L around the world. The reason being, because this song was EXO’s last appearance in a complete original twelve-members formation, after the departure of Kris and Luhan back in 2014. As addictive as it could be, the song stood as the runner-up on 7 MostAddictive K-Pop Hits of 2014 list.

Someone, call the doctor. I need her, I can’t stand it even for a single day. I can’t hold it, you’re an addiction I don’t want to escape. This trap is more beautiful for a long time. Too much, it’s you, your love, this is overdose.” –EXO, Overdose (중독)
