150303 - XIA Junsu’s Epic New Music Video for “Flower” Is a Visual Feast

JYJ member XIA Junsu makes a solo comeback after almost two years with a striking music video for the eponymous title track of his third album “Flower.”

Co-written by XIA Junsu and Taewan (also known as C-Luv), “Flower” features a hip hop beat with a twist. Combining classical strings with background vocals that feature operatic vocal lines as well as a Gregorian chant, “Flower” is at once ethereal and epic. Not to mention, Epik High’s Tablomakes a cameo, weaving his poetry seamlessly into the song.

The music video does the epic track justice with its vivid visuals and grandiose, if perhaps at times inscrutable, imagery. The video opens with XIA Junsu as the angsty king of a mythical empire sitting on his throne when a pack of discontented subjects barge in and throw the decapitated head of a cyborg at his feet.

Gold is a recurrent motif. The cyborg’s head is gold and gold costumes and statues abound. In an especially memorable scene, Junsu pours himself a cup of gold elixir. 

There is also an adorable but creepy girl who seems to cause Junsu’s ultimate demise. In one of the last scenes, she laughs as Junsu writhes in pain while regurgitating electric blue vomit (Yes, electric blue vomit).

When I was little, I used to have recurrent dreams of this black figure in a fedora and coat (I called him the "shadow man"). He was always trying to kill me/my family. Mom was freaked out one night because she said she saw him. Any info on this?

I actually have heard of this before. People either call it the “shadow man” or the “hat man”.  Apparently, he’s been spotted in homes all across the world, and usually appears in times of distress.  They say he enjoys the terror that he causes those he visits.

Lysine+ Arginine-

A lot of heeps I’ve talked to who have recurrent breakouts have found that upping the lysine and reducing the arginine in their diet has helped. Personally I just take lysine supplements as I do not have recurrent outbreaks, but for those who do, I’ve had people say they found this article helpful. It kind of outlines what foods contain a lot of lysine and arginine, and has a couple of other tips for reducing and battling outbreaks. I hope this will help some of ya!

What if some day or night a demon were to steal into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: "This life as you now live it and have lived it you will have to live once again and innumerable times again; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and every sigh and everything unspeakably small or great in your life must return to you, all in the same succession and sequence – even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned over again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!”
—  Friedrich Nietzsche, from The Gay Science
