No horror this time, director Cheng Wei-Hao (紅衣女孩 Lady In Red MV) created a “classic love story” for Jolin.
The girlfriend of a good-for-nothing man is going to take an exam to become a police officer. This original combination of sweethearts will most likely not be eternal.
This man is going to be involved in criminal activities, the romance of these two people will be full of twists and turns.
Jolin is acting as the madly and foolishly in love girlfriend, Rhydian Vaughan as the handsome boyfriend, and Bamboo Chen as the bad guy going too far.
Both men are fighting each other in the MV. They even went to martial arts class for action training !
The story is about Rhydian Vaughan, a punk being in love with policewoman Jolin. As the story progresses, their couple encounters a bitter fate, and becomes intertwined with Bamboo Chen, who plays a junkie. Return to reality, to unmask a sad and beautiful love story.
At some point in the MV Rhydian Vaughan is arrested, and Jolin sheds tears from her heart. Cheng Wei-Hao praised Jolin for her very good acting in the MV.
Jolin revealed that she read words written by her in her diary that were similar to bidding farewell to someone in order to help her for that particular scene.
In order to fit with the music genre, the director mostly used colors “blue” and “red” and designed three scenes: “Police”, “Nightclub”, and “Bitter Life”.
He said that people associate nightclubs with “red”, and police is associated with “blue”.
Blue and red are also the colors for men and women restrooms. There’s also another meaning: in the “romance world”, these colors represent the difference between men and women.
“For me, romance is someone in my heart, whether he’s by my side or has already left, you long for him, he’s in the picture, that’s romance !Jolin Tsai
The dialogue of the MV always evokes the state of mind of the characters, because there must be more or less a reflection of the heart of the boyfriend/girlfriend, I think that’s the most romantic thing.”
