"Noel - Our Last Day MV reaction:Saying and Staying"
I don't usually listen to Sad Korean songs but I do sometimes when they are recommended by a friend. I don't know how Noel is but his voice is powerful and conveys so much emotion.
The MV starts off with a guy in a cafe watching a couple saying goodbye to each other and hugging. The girl notices him and they apologize at the public display of affection.
This gives you a sense that this song is about not being able to say goodbye properly. It is not really clear what happens to this guys partner in the MV. It seems that she died suddenly , maybe in an accident at the railroad crossing that they are standing on and the same one where the guy actually goes to near the very end of the MV.
The MV switches from views of the past where the girl is the one who brings brightness to this grumpy person and to black and white shots of the present where the guy seems to be lonely and giving up on life.
The song surges with the emotional rendition of the line "My only consolation for you who has departed..."
The guy thought about taking his own life but he remembered that he has to live so that he can keep the happy memories of them together. His role is to live and keep those memories within himself. And so he walks away.
With what he could not say , he could now do by staying.
