EXID makes their return with “L.I.E”
As you can guess by the title, the song is about a girl who knows all the “lies” her cheating boyfriend tells her and it drives her crazy. The video takes place at a hotel which is greatly influenced by “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (which is a movie I love). A couple arrives at the hotel and it appears the guy is the cheating boyfriend of the song.
It kind of feels like Hyerin’s portion of the music video addresses the song message while the rest is just sexual visuals. Hyeri sings to a male doll and rips his head off in frustration, before stomping in front of the cheating guy’s hotel room, starts pounding on the door and making a mess. Everybody else is either laying down on the floor, in a tub or being Hani pounding meat and excessively shaking a phallic pepper shaker; that pulverized slab of meat is literally completely covered in pepper.
As for the costuming, I love the purple hotel outfits, which are also modeled off of “The Grand Budapest hotel” outfits and the change to the dance break outfits. Probably my fave part of the entire video was the dance break.
