MV making

This translation has been made for Jolin’s team by Bingo Bilingual !

消极掰 Life Sucks MV was not supposed to be launched so early, but fans were asking for it, so Jolin decided to shoot it in advance.
The song, which sounds full of negative energy but also has positive energy, has received enthousiastic feedback by many fans.
Jolin said: “I’m a little bit surprised, this song is completely a black horse that I did not expect !”

Jolin is wearing a gorgeous dress which came from Belgium by plane, with “Tears of demoralization” makeup.
She’s playing a lovelorn famous actress. 14 extras are also playing people from all walks of life: athlete, office worker, swimming coach…

This MV is not active at all, it’s showing giving up life to the extreme.

“If you encounter something that doesn’t go well, you can be lazy in order to find the motivation to move forward.”

Jolin Tsai

消极掰 Life Sucks’ choreography is called “Exercise demoralization”.
Jolin said: “Please try it ! I yawn everytime I jump, I feel so good !”

“I am not used to “lie down and earn money” ! But doing these lazy body movements in bed, in the end it was very exciting to dance with everyone on set !”

Jolin Tsai

This time director Jeff Chang let everyone lie in bed. It’s a very sad feeling. Jolin thinks this is a strong collective move.
In fact, when she’s not feeling inspired at all, sometimes she lies down and takes a break.

When facing negative situations, Jolin usually does something not related to the original thing to divert attention. For instance, when she’s angry, she writes in her diary, goes dancing or watching movies to vent.
Something that will easily give her negative thoughts ?
She laughed: “No holidays !”
