My SHINee’s Orgel interpretation…
At first I thought it was Jonghyun literally describing his dependance on the music box he is holding, (insert something deep about memory and genuineness in this cruel world etc etc), but then people said the music box was a girl and that it was about his possessive nature…
but now I think that actually…. Jonghyun (or “SHINee”) is the music box, and it’s his darker thoughts on his job… And fans?
It is afterall, the Misconceptions of Me. (Me being SHINee). I feel like the narrative is actually us fans, and our possessive words are our love for SHINee, our music “box”, which sings for us.
Here are the lines that got me thinking;
작은 상자 안에 갇혀 답답하진 않을지
파도 치는 이 세상이 어지럽진 않을지
Aren’t you frustrated, trapped inside this small box?
Isn’t this world, crashing with waves, differcult?
이 세상엔 우리 둘 뿐이야 오직 나를 위해 춤춰줘
너 항상 웃는 걸 보면 행복하지?
It’s only us in this world
Only dance for me
Aren’t you happy if you see me always smiling?
힐끔힐끔 누가 널 보는 게 싫어 날 위해 웃어줘
I don’t want anyone to steal glances at you, smile for me
빙글빙글 돌아가네 날 위한 노래
It goes round and round, this song for me
오직 나를 위한 나의 오르골
My orgel that is only mine
Okay I should sleep, haha!
What do you guys think?
