A sweet music video by Loona’s newest member Chuu is making waves as fans praise her rare depiction of same-sex love in K-pop.
Chuu’s “Heart Attack,” released on Dec. 27, introduced the 10th member of Loona (stylized LOO??), a new girl group with a unique rollout. Since October 2016, the act has been revealing members of what will be the 12-person team through solo and collaborative tracks. The latest, Chuu, is part of the third and final subgroup of Loona, following the four members of Loona ? and the trio of Odd Eye Circle. She joins Yves as part of the final four members, whose team has been described as “four girls who denied the garden of Eden.” And it is the depiction of Yves and Chuu in the music video for Chuu’s single that has caught the eyes of many.
Explained via YouTube blurb as a song that “interprets the feelings of being in love” in “Chuu’s own adorable emoticon-like ways,” the music video shows Chuu watching, following and even taking photos of Yves. Despite Chuu's interest, Yves doesn't acknowledge the other girl for most of the video, even as Chuu tries to get closer and give Yves the gift of an apple. Things come to a conclusion with Chuu and Yves celebrating Christmas together and Chuu feeding Yves a strawberry, but then shows Chuu laying on the ground as if dead before she is revived by Haseul, a previously revealed member of Loona.
