Great Music Video - KISS

One of the phenomenal Korean video clips riding (or in a way creating) the Korean wave is a song by 3 member Korean girl group, K.I.S.S - 'Because I'm A Girl'.

Created back in 2002, this song is rather sad, but however, the music video is done in a very unique way, turning it into a rather touching clip.

Just like the lyrics, the video shows about a building relationship to be broken... but the twist is towards the end of it, where the guy sacrificed his career & love for the girl by donating his eyes to her, and for her to live on well. This shows the strong love & the big heart of the guy for the girl.

This music video is falls in the rather typical imaginary-romance of 'beautiful love' Asian pop music is known of. However, its bold storyline has created a big fanbase, and I'm sure has touched the hearts of many.

To one extend, the song itself has been translated to a few different languages - with the more notable ones in Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese & Tagalog.

There is also an English version by Jini, one of the original members of the band.

  1. I've listened to the English version of this song before I got to know that the original ones were from Korean. Anyway, both are wonderful song and indeed, very touching =)

    Btw, there's another Korean pianist/song composer called Yiruma, who's really talented and his music are quite inspiring as well. You should try listen to one of his well-known piece of piano music, Kiss The Rain -Yiruma.



Oh hey, thank you for commenting! :)
