SNH48 MV for “Princess’s Cloak”is full of stunning glamour

After posting the preview previously, SNH48 has now unveiled their incredibly beautiful and luxurious MV, filmed in Madrid Spain.

I am too blindsided by the visual elements of this MV to understand the scenes. The cinematography is simply amazing thanks to a Korean team who is probably used to filming kpop videos. Their red gowns, accessories and makeup are also full of detail. This is truly a gift for both the members and the fans who voted them into Top 16.

Quoting this article ,the investment and quality of SNH48 “Princess’s Cloak” seems to have surpassed works from China’s No.1 boyband TFBoys, Chris Lee and William Chan.

Adding a few screencaps:

Despite her petite frame, Kiku puts in alot of effort in her expressions and dancing to give herself a commanding presence.

Here’s a Yukirin lookalike. Tassel earrings seem to be the in thing nowadays.

This member has very good expressions!

Kiku has many beautiful shots.

Girls break into Flamenco since they’re in Spain.It’s nice they’re putting effort in this especially since Flamenco is not part of the choreography.

cloak7
The lyrics seem to be talking about not giving up despite losing the crown in Sousenkyo. If one perseveres, the Princess’s Cloak will be waiting for them. I have no idea what these roses and petals represent though.

Kiku, being the winner of Sousenkyo, dons her Princess’s Cloak with a very cool flip.

This is the jacket cover for Kiku’s solo single.I suppose that’s the winner’s bonus but given her popularity, acting work and vocal skills it’s about time for a solo debut!

The post sousenkyo single for SNH48 this year is piled with glamour as usual. This time the Top16 fly to Spain to film their new single “Princess’s Cloak”.

The song is a Spanish style EDM, composed by singer JJ Lin and produced by a U.S team who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

The full MV will be released Mid October.

Live Performance:

My thoughts: The skirt swirling is nice but it does not look that Spanish-like. I wonder if it’s a problem with their dancing. I love JJ Lin’s songs but EDM just doesn’t work for me. Either way,the concept itself is already 100 times better than what 48Group delivers nowadays!

I cannot resist adding these beautiful stills of Kiku. She looks stunning in blonde!
