taeyeon is basically an oversized seven year old girl with the heart of a 90 year old woman and the sex appeal of a victoria secret model.
SOMEBODY SAID IT
As we understand many of you are confused by the new SNSD "Mr.Mr" MV and here at K-POP TIMEOUT with the help of many amazing SONEs (who helped us update), we have an explanation for you!
First, here are the English Lyrics to help put things into perspective.
So the MV begins in a classy hospital.
We are shown a lot of operation equipment hinting at a major operation about to take place. There is also a diamond heart symbolising a heart full of love ready to be transplanted. Diamonds are also used as they are the strongest mineral, showing that the girls are going to replace his weak heart with a strong one.
There is also a man lying asleep who we assume is the patient, the Mr.Mr.
Taeyeon then kicks off the song singing "Let’s Go!", while holding an apple made of diamonds. As we all know apples are a symbol of love and lust (the forbidden fruit) and it can be assumed that the girls want to begin a shining and strong relationship of love with this Mr.Mr. The idea of the forbidden fruit is further strengthened by Taeyeon’s lines asking the guy why is he afraid.
Seohyun then continues the song playing a rubix cube, mirroring the lyrics of telling the boy not to waste time trying things out. We can assume the guy is not jumping for the girls like their fanboys would.
As the lyrics of Sunny suggest, the girls like the Mr.Mr. but he ignores and closes his eyes when they are close (as seen throughout the whole MV. The most he ever did was steal 1-2 glances).
The chorus then suggests the guy does not have the guts to like someone like them and also has been hurt before.But still WHO IGNORES SNSD WHEN THEY ARE NEXT TO U?!
At this point in the MV, the Mr.Mr has been drugged for his operation which is represented by him seeing doubles of things.
To get the point across that the guy feels inferior to the goddesses, during the guy’s dreams in his drugged sleep (all represented in Black & White), he sees SNSD dancing like superstars in a car park like those oh so many Kpop Idol MVs.
The song continues and Yuri prepares the diamond heart for transplant with her lyrics of "Be stronger will you boy" cut-scening perfectly to Mr.Mr’s dream of SNSD in masculine attire, asking him to man up and like them.
Sunny then holds the diamond apple of love close to herself and then towards the guys’ heart, as if transferring her love for him before the life changing operation, reflecting the lyrics "You made my heart race hun".
As the dance break begins so does the operation.
They unbutton his shirt for the procedure (not because Taeyeon made the girls become pervs lol)
In the operation equipment, we also see the use of calcium chloride, which is used to treat heart problems (in this case Mr.Mr’s weak heart), with side effects including hallucinations (well that explains things).
We also see various pinkish red liquids going up the tubes, as if signifying a rise in their love.
After much more operation symbolism we get to see Hyoyeon getting the diamond heart out of its case and bring it to the guy.
Followed by the guy’s dreams of seeing all the girls reaching for his heart.
We see the heart one last time, followed by the girls walking gloriously out of the operation room, hinting at the success of the procedure of turning the Mr.Mr’s heart back to one of love.
The guy then wakes up in the operation room, finding himself left alone.
He then sees blurry memories (now in color to distinguish them from his dreams) of the 9 goddesses that saved him.
With individual flashbacks of them too.
The operation was like a metaphor of the girls bringing love back in his life through their love for him, and the Mr.Mr sees the memories of the love they once shared which is so surreal it felt almost dream-like(hence the use of both color and black & white).
And the MV of course ends with Mr.Mr finally being able to see all the 9 girls clearly.
Was this helpful in understanding the MV?
