So this is a little bit late but hey! Better late than never right?
Basically I just finished watching the second teaser for Fly and I AM OBSESSED WITH IT! It is gorgeous and exquisite and simply breath taking. It is different from the first teaser, which is great considering that most Kpop teasers that get put out are similar to each other, and it shows us a new colour to what Jessica is bringing us.
Unlike the first teaser which pretty much had mostly shots of Jessica bathing in the sun while reading a post card this is more insightful of what is to come. Jessica in her last teaser only gives us a sneak peak at the music itself within the last few seconds when she sings “You can fly” but in the second one you get an instrumental!
This teaser unlike the last is fast pace and quick in changing! It gives you just enough and then pulls back leaving you wanting more! So I am just going to highlight my most memorable shots!
So first thing that we see is actually a pink screen which brings back so many beautiful memories with SNSD and then it suddenly shows a turntable/record plater with someone putting a record on. This not only make me anticipate Jessica’s music but for some reason it also reminds me of the part in ‘Genie’ where Tiffany says “DJ put it back on”… Memories keep me going back to how the girls use to be one.
AND SHE DANCES! Can I just say that not only is this setting simply amazing but Jessica as well as the back up dancers looking H.O.T! I not only love the face that Jessica WILL be dancing in her solo debut but also the fact that she looks classy doing it! Each girl here also has a distinct style which differs from most kpop videos where backup dancers generally wear the same outfit while those who are in the group or the solo artist wears something different to make them stand out. However, here is we see all of the girls wearing different outfits showing individual charm.
I personally feel like this is being respectful to them and also as if Jessica is saying ‘They deserve to be recognised for their hard work and dedication’. The difference in outfits between the girls will allow fans to easily recognise them and pin point who they like which in turn will allow even the dancers to have a moment to stand out. So kudos to you whoever had this great idea!
Can I just spaz over the fact that Jessica looks AMAZING in this teaser? Every outfit, makeup and hairstyle in this teaser just makes Jessica simply glorious! Loving how each outfit brings a new element to the teaser!
While the setting is deserted and quiet, Jessica’s pop of colour and bright expressions seem to fill up the void! The sunset behind leaves a slight pink/orange colour mixed well with the blue also gives me a feeling of restfulness and peace. Maybe it is just me but the vibes I got from this picture alone made me feel as if Jessica was at peace with herself as she is now back doing what she loves and sharing her talent!
I simply had to add this shot in! All we can see here is BLUE, other than the red ice cream that she threw away… such a waste. I say this small shot significant and full of symbolism with the colours. Blue is seen in her dress, the fence behind her and the sky. It is the colour of the ocean/sea and of course, the sky which is also emphasised by the slight tilt upwards of the camera.
The colour blue also associates with trust and loyalty. It also symbolises wisdom and confidence which Jessica needs to move forward. Intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven are also connections made with the colour blue. What I found though is that Blue is considered the colour of Stability which I feel as if Jessica is just getting back after her departure from SNSD.
The colour Red on the other hand, which is the colour of the ice cream which she threw away, has connotations of being the colour of not only love but also of violence, danger, anger. Is Jessica trying to say that she has lost of the love of a lot of people? Or is she throwing away all the hate and anger that she has and is staring fresh?
The symbolism in this shot is overwhelming and very insightful into maybe what Jessica is feeling heading into the next chapter of her life.
No special reason of why this shot was amazing.. It just IS! Jessica looks gorgeous or well… GorJess!
Snow wonderland. Does this also make anyone else remember her nickname ‘Ice Princess’ or is it just me? Also a great contrast between the background of the desert and the postcard which could also be the same one which she was intently studying while in the bath tub in the first teaser.
We have a birds eye view now of Jessica and the girls dancing! The colours are not overly bright but slightly dull with words and quotes around it!
One thing that did catch my eye though is the fact that there is texts about the bible and God within these shots one of them being the bible verse ‘Acts 7:38’ which says “This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:”.
Jessica looks as if she truly is having the time of her life and is free. This makes me feel like she with this freedom she is now able to fly and be herself. I love the gradual change in colour of the sky behind her as well between the baby pink in the bottom left hand corner to the top right hand corner.
A long shot of Jessica on the road with a slight pink tint to the shot which brings a feeling of completion just like the ending of the day. This road could also show the long journey that she has ahead of her and how alone that she could be feeling now that she does not have eight others joining her. This could symbolise her new adventure and how she might not know where it take her but if she keeps focused and keep pushing forward and straight towards her goals that her dreams will be reached!
This show also brings a sense of loneliness but also a finality. As if she is saying that this is the path that she has now chosen and that this is the one she is sticking to. While she no longer has the other members of her former group backing her up, I believe that Jessica has a lot to show us and things that she will gradually gift to her fans!
All in all, I just want to say that Jessica YOU can fly. Do not give up hope because you have many great fans who are waiting for your return!
