This is one of those rare instances where I might actually enjoy the video more than the song. It just seems whimsical, capturing something, somewhere, somehow from some past. At the very least it does an admirable job of trying to capture that notion of fleeting time. Just another example how moving images can narrate quite evocatively, casting layers on an otherwise linear plot.

And besides, the video makes me feel like it is autumn. That is quite literally my favorite time of the whole year. It evokes a memory of Ilsan (일산동구) in the late 1990s walking from the hagwon (학원) I was teaching at and wandering out towards the subway stop to head to Seoul on an early Saturday evening. So much possibility.
