Butterfly

Why are you doing this to me who’s fallen in love with you? Don’t step back and say that you’re afraid. How about just leave it up to me?” –SHINee, Ring Ding Dong


SHINee merilis mini album ketiga mereka yang bertajuk “2009, Year of Us” pada tanggal 19 Oktober 2009 secara digital, dengan album fisiknya kemudian menyusul dirilis pada tanggal 22 Oktober 2009. Lima hari sebelum diluncurkannya album ini, yaitu pada tanggal 14 Oktober 2009, promotional single pertama dari album ini, “Ring Ding Dong”, dirilis ke pasaran. “Ring Ding Dong” adalah sebuah lagu dance pop electronic yang diaransemen dan ditulis liriknya oleh komposer handal dari SM Entertainment, Yoo Young Jin. Pada hari yang bersamaan dengan dirilisnya lagu ini secara digital, sebuah music video (MV) dari lagu ini diunggah ke akun situs Youtube resmi milik SM Entertainment. SHINee memulai masa promosi mereka pada comeback stage di program acara musik televisi KBS Music Bank pada tanggal 16 Oktober 2009 dengan membawakan lagu ini. Lagu ini menjadi lagu pertama yang membawa mereka meraih triple crown (berada di puncak tangga lagu selama tiga minggu berturut-turut) dalam program acara musik televisi SBS Inkigayo.
“Ring Ding Dong” menceritakan seorang pria yang jatuh cinta sampai tergila-gila pada seorang wanita. He has never felt like that before and he even goes like crazy because of that woman. But unfortunately, that woman doesn’t go easy on him. That makes him feel burdened and more curious of her. He doesn’t even understand why he’s being like that. He’s never tired of convincing her to accept his love, and never bored of following her and doing everything that she wants him to. Even though, at the same time he’s worried because he feels that the woman is way too perfect for him. Istilah ‘ring ding dong’ merupakan perlambang dari detak jantung yang bertalu setiap kali ia berdekatan dengan wanita itu. Perasaan yang menggebu bagaikan lonceng yang terus berdering dengan bunyi ‘ring ding dong’. Bunyi itulah yang selalu mengisi kepala dan hatinya karena wanita itu. Ketika jatuh cinta, orang terkadang merasakan desiran yang aneh di perutnya, yang sering disebut dengan istilah ‘butterfly in stomach’. Begitu pula yang dirasakan oleh pria itu. That’s why he calls her ‘butterfly’. He uses that terms because that woman brings ‘butterfly’ to his stomach. Indeed, falling in love is a burdening thing. Whether it is like a bell ringing or butterfly in the stomach, it’s always something that we can’t ever stop or control.


“2009, Year of Us” membawa SHINee meraih penghargaan Bonsang Award dalam ajang The 19th Seoul Music Award, sekaligus pertama kalinya mereka meraih Bonsang sepanjang karir mereka. Pada tahun berikutnya mereka juga meraih penghargaan yang sama berkat album “Lucifer”. MV dari lagu ini dibuat dengan suasana dark, yang menunjukkan transisi image mereka dari boys-next-door-type dan cute-little-brothers-every-girl-wants-to-have dalam debut song mereka, “Replay”, menjadi grown-up-yet-gorgeous-boys dan not-a-boy-not-yet-a-man-type. Meskipun “Lucifer” adalah lagu yang diakui sebagai lagu tersukses yang dimiliki SHINee hingga saat ini, justru “Ring Ding Dong” lah lagu pertama mereka yang saya sukai dan berhasil ‘nyantol’ di benak saya selama berminggu-minggu. Melodi yang easy listening dan sanggup membawa para pendengarnya menggoyangkan badan, suara vokal Onew dan Jonghyun yang seksi, gerakan lincah Taemin dalam menarikan koreografi, suara rap Minho dan Key yang menggoda, “Ring Ding Dong” is so elastic and fantastic!

Choose me and don’t turn around. Choose and don’t run away. You have to take responsibility of me, a fool who has fallen for you.” –SHINee, Ring Ding Dong
