The Kiss

Thursday, July 07, 2016




How can we get tired of someone we love? It just doesn’t make sense to me when someone can get tired of the person they love. Perhaps, because I can never get tired of someone that I love. When I fall in love with someone, it also means that I adore that person, that I like him so much that my body cannot take even just one day without him. When I fall in love with someone, it also means that I admire that person, that I long for him so much that my mind cannot spend just one minute not thinking about him. When I fall in love with someone, I want to see that person every day. I need to see his face, embrace his body, hear his voice, hold his hands, and kiss his lips. Someone said to me that our problem is that we think we have time. Well, at times, I’m scared as hell for not having enough time with the person I love. Therefore, as long as I’m breathing, I would like to spend my days with that person. One kiss is never enough. I long for him all the time. And this holiday season is killing me. Please come back soon from your homecoming, Love.

When I see you once, I wanna see you two more times. If I see you twice, three times, I want to hug you even more. I want to put on couple rings with you, and walk together on this street.” –Apink, Mr. Chu

This cute Kpop song always reminds me of my significant other whenever I listen to it; “Mr. Chu” by the Korean bunch of sweethearts, Apink. This dance bubblegum pop track was released on March 30th 2014 as the lead single for the group’s fourth mini album titled “Pink Blossom”. The extended play itself was released a day after on March 31st 2014, as well as the music video, directed by Song Won Mo and Park Sang Woo of Digipedi Studio. The  video was premiered on the SBS MTv on March 28th 2014. “Mr. Chu” was written by Duble Sidekick along with David Kim as lyricist and SEION as composer and arranger. This song with a little bit of electro sound it in was released in two version, the regular one and the On Stage version. The differences between two versions are the arrangement and ambience of the song. The On Stage version has more electro sound, while the regular one has more band sound.

Lyrically, “Mr. Chu” talks about the girl in love; how love can be so addictive and wonderful, how one kiss can mean so much and change everything, and how amazing that feels. “When I see you once, I wanna see you two more times. If I see you twice, three times, I want to hug you even more. I want to put on couple rings with you, and walk together on this street. Even when I see you every day, I like you even more; even after I pinch myself two times, three times. It’s like I’m dreaming, dreaming. I smile just at the thought of you.” Have you ever been in love? How does it feel? It feels amazing, right? For me personally, falling and being in love is the greatest feeling ever. And when the feeling is reciprocal, then it’s the most wonderful feeling ever. It’s like a dream comes true, and nothing could compare with that. When we fall in love, we can never get enough of that person. Even the thought of that person could make us smile and brighten our day. When it comes to that person, once is never enough. We always long for more and more.
“I can’t forget the soft feeling. My face is getting hot and turning red. It’s so lovely, lovely, you’re so loveable. I keep liking you more.” When we fall in love, every little thing that that person does is right. When we’re being in love, every single thing of that person is lovable, adorable, and admirable. When we love someone, we cannot help but keep on liking that person more and more. As the feeling is so beautiful, it gets greater and deeper. “Listen to my wish; I hope an eternal love will come true. I hope this electrifying feeling never changes. Always look at me only, baby.” As it gets greater and deeper, a sincere prayer is sent. We pray in hopes that our feeling will reach that person’s heart; that the reciprocity will never end, that all we have is real and true and sincere, that the amazing feeling will last forever. And of course, as a woman, it’s our nature for wanting to be adored, admired, and loved deeply, and for that person to look at us only. It’s our nature to be the one and only, for that person is also our one and only.
Love comes like a sudden kiss on the lips from someone we like. It’s sweet and wonderful. It’s like an electric shock that tastes amazing. It makes us trembling, in a very good way. It makes our heart beats faster. It makes us fluttering. We feel like we’re losing strength in all of our body and we just surrender before it. The next thing we know, we’re already falling fast and deep. And we just cannot get out of it. “Mr. Chu, on my lips, sweetly. I lose all strength in my body. You shake up my heart; you shake me up. I’m falling, falling for your love. Hey you, on my lips, every day with you. When I see you, I close my eyes. Will you secretly come to me and kiss me again? You’re like my dream; you’re my Mr. Chu.” And the thing about falling and being in love is, we spend every minute waiting for the time we’re able to see that person again. We spend every day expecting to meet that person. It’s like living in a daydream. And yeah, at time like this, love just feels so good. Though we never know what the future brings, let’s just enjoy the moment.

For there is nothing like this moment when love could feel so good, so let’s embrace it. As we already know, love always brings two things alongside it, just like two sides of coin; happiness and sadness. And relationship always has certain phases. “Mr. Chu” might tell only the happy phase. However, if we look deeper inside it, we could find the sadness through the longing feeling toward the person we fall in love with. One kiss, and voila! We feel the pain for longing for more kisses. As it turns out, kissing is a lot better in real life than on a page or screen. But love and life are a lot more complicated in the real world. And happy endings aren’t always guaranteed. However somehow, no matter how many times we’ve learned that expectation hurts, we just can’t help but expecting for something more when we’re in love. That’s just the trouble with love is. Since we know that it could feel so good, whether we realize it or not, we’re craving for that kind of feeling, with all of its consequences, including the pain it may bring along.

Listen to my wish; I hope an eternal love will come true. I hope this electrifying feeling never changes. Always look at me only, baby.” –Apink, Mr. Chu
