Get ready for everything sweet and pastel pink, as Show Lo‘s third single for his new album “Reality Show” heaps on the cuteness, even specially engaging Korean sweetie pie Suzy from girl group Miss A as the female lead. The “Together in Love” music video tells the story of both Show and Suzy as themselves participating in a celebrity dating reality show, complete with live comments on their every move from avid viewers. For those who are fans of both Show and Suzy, you’re in for a treat as their interactions are sweet and adorable, with Suzy accidentally kicking Show after laughing too hard and even slapping him in the face. For such a cottony music video, it drives home the point of Show’s album surprisingly well at least through the visuals, as (SPOILER ALERT!) after the shoot ends, Show and Suzy are seen joking around, making us question what is real and what is fake in today’s reality shows.
Music-wise, “Together in Love” is simple and doesn’t have much substance, but is most definitely sweet. No high-profile tricks pulled from either singer with a repetitive melody, few harmonies and both of them just taking turns singing. Nevertheless, it’s a song that goes easy on the ear. Big props to Suzy though, for getting her pinyin and pronunciation perfect, something that certainly is not easy to do.
The music video to “Together in Love” was very entertaining, and to me it seemed like the song was more of background music for the music video than the other way around. An interesting collaboration between the two superstars, nonetheless.
