Late again. Do this quick. I notice this because they are lyrics i can readily understand, but the English words “my boy” sure do pop up a lot in Korean pop lyrics, and a lot particularly in A Pink lyrics. Always the same, very narrow iteration of those words, “my boy” is a safe, redeemable site of projected fantasy and security. He is the one who will provide it, he is the one on whom it depends. It can’t happen without him. Of course this works within and aids some very large, very insidious, noxious forces, but this song draws that boy – who he should be in fitting with the fantasy – and holds him to task to be that boy. “I want to be that girl who can be with you forever. So tell me, will you be my boyfriend?” I want to be happy and i want you to be the boy to make me happy, so can you fucking be him?
