The song released in 2013 and it also has an official music video. Let’s take a look at the music video first, shall we?
The music video has the actor Yoo Yoon-seok as the model. He played as the boyfriend of Hyorin, that was told by the lyrics of the song. If you take a look at the title, we can tell that this is a one-sided love, but this type of one-sided love is something that we should take a note.
On the lyrics of the song, it said that, “You’re so selfish, boy. You decide on what we eat. My thoughts are not important to you. You only think about yourself.” Those are the kind of lyrics that were written in the song. We can tell that, in this song, Hyorin was experiencing a toxic relationship where the guy only thought about himself and didn’t let the girl make her own choice.
