Over the past few days, SM Entertainment has released a couple of music video teasers for Taeyeon’s solo debut which is scheduled to drop on October 7th.
The first one looks like a J.Crew catalog had mild-mannered sex with an Instagram filter.
If there is a hopeful element to the first teaser, it is that the music, which Taeyeon had a hand in writing, seems to be somewhat substantial and almost pop-rock between the low keys and electric guitar strums (Thank god because Taeyeon should be beyond the aegyo, cutesy bullshit by now). The rest of the teaser, with its many shots of Taeyeon pensively squatting, sitting and standing around, don’t leave much of an impression one way or another (unless one is really, REALLY into sepia filters).
The second teaser, released earlier today, largely offers more of the same.
However, there is one intriguing moment that comes at the very end of the teaser.
Please don’t play with my heart like this SM Entertainment. Just when I was ready to write this off as a mom-rock single, you had to go and insert approximately 1.123213435 frames of intrigue. LONG LIVE ROCK STAR TAEYEON, MAY SHE MAKE AN APPEARANCE IN THIS
MONEY GRAB SOLO EXPERIMENT.
