SNSD Drop Ho-Hum “Lion Heart” MV Teaser That Is Saved By Goddess Yuri

Building off the retro-50’s teaser images that the group released earlier this week, Girls’ Generation (SNSD) have now released the music video teaser for their upcoming music video “Lion Heart”.

It’s a’ight.

The almost-showtune aspects of “Lion Heart” from the chants of “oh-oh-oh” in the background to SNSD’s wardrobe and set pieces comes through nicely but the song still sounds a little lackluster from what is shown here. Also, the “girl meets up with unidentifiable boy in various random circumstances” doesn’t make for an inspiring teaser, especially considering that the group had already used a nearly identical conceit for their “I Got a Boy” drama teaser (granted, it’s been a few years, but still).

To the teaser’s credit, Yuri is wisely put front and center for a good portion of it which was wise because holy hell does she steal the entire teaser. Whoever was in charge of that decision deserves a commendation or something.

Can Yuri just become the new Yoona and be front and center for all non-crucial song parts? Please and thank you.

  1. I really like the styling overall here. Agree with you about Yuri. I’m wondering if their going to do a separate teaser with all 8 front and center like this. Putting Yuri up there for real would be a pretty big change. One I would welcome, but it seems unlikely. But yeah, they all look really good in this concept.

  2. Is it me, or does it seem like SNSD has lost their fastball suddenly via SM giving them mediocre material as if they were milking the last few years of the contract out of the group and not wanting to really invest more in them. I bet it must be frustrating as the members aren’t stupid and know when they are being given uninspired material and concepts.
