Every Letter I Sent You Impressions
Baek Yerin and her beautiful voice comes through in every song in the album, even though most of the songs are in English. In addition, the decision to include 18 songs in her first album was a massive undertaking. One, that definitely paid off. It also shows the artist’s generosity to her fans by letting them enjoy her new songs with improved versions of her older ones.
The concept for this album’s look, as shown by the photo teasers and the music videos, is very hipster with a hint of western style. This may be for her new songs to appeal to a global audience as both music videos were also in English.
0310 MV Afterthoughts
The music video for “0310” resembles a short film. The video was shot artistically, following a teenage girl who had a fight with her mother about having more freedom. As she was wandering around, she met a duo singing on streets that made her realize that music gives her the freedom that she wanted.
The video portrays a story of having freedom without being lonely, aligning with the lyrics of the song.
POPO (How Deep is Our Love?) MV Afterthoughts
Popo (How Deep Is Our Love?) is a love song about someone professing her love to someone special by expressing the comfort he brings to her life. It portrays the passion of the woman to willingly love the man.
In the music video, the singer seems waiting for her lover to come by wandering in a beautiful field and waiting at a port. Some of the scenes are in an apartment and still conveys the act of waiting.
