MNL48 premieres ‘Gingham Check’ Music Video
After the successful release of MNL48’s 4th single ‘Ikaw Ang Melody’ music video last July, the idol group followed it up as they drop their newest music video of ‘Gingham Check’ featuring the MNL48 Under Girls today, October 15, 2019 on their official Youtube page.
Featuring Cess, Brei, Ruth, Lara, Kay, Belle, Amy, Joyce, Tin, Alyssa, Yssa, Mari, Miho, Dian, Emz and MNL48 Under Girls center Coleen, ‘Gingham Check’ is a coupling song of the group’s 4th single album that was released last July 25 and is the tagalized version with the same title of the 27th major single of MNL48’s sister group, AKB48 that was released in 2015.
Before the release, fans were surprised as MNL48 dropped the teaser of Gingham Check’s official music video, wearing their newest costume that highlighted the members’ cute and bubbly personality as well as the fun energy of the song on Wednesday, October 2, on the group’s official Yotube page and social media pages.
‘Gingham Check’ is full of creative effects and aesthetic visuals as the director, Zeph Burgos, shared the whole concept of the music video, “Ang concept ng music video was based sa lyrics itself pero binali naming, which is to be funny and cute, because ang concept ay naughty and nice, which leads to comparison of sorts and decisions, sa pag-pili ng anumang bagay, the moral story of this music video is you always have choices, you just have to make the good choice for your well-being.”
He also added the big difference of ‘Gingham Check’ from the previous music videos, “Tinapangan ang atake ngayon dahil we shot 75% of the music video using green screen ‘chroma’ integrated with visual effects so medyo bold move ‘to para naman ma-appreciate ng fans ang music video and malaman nila na may kakayanan ang MNL48 na gumawa ng gantong music video.”
As the center of MNL48 Under Girls, MNL48 Coleen, expressed her over-all experience with ‘Gingham Check’ music video, “Nanibago po ako kasi ngayon lang po kami na malaki ‘yung percentage na puro green screen yung shoot, sobrang nakaka-pagod pero sana po sa dulo maging worth it talaga lahat kasi binigay namin ‘yung best dito. Ang daming change-costume then madaming set ng sayaw so, kailangan ibigay pa din ‘yung best and we hope na magustuhan ng Mnloves ‘yung ibibigay namin.“
She really can’t contain her excitement as she added, “Very excited po ako kasi maganda ‘yung concept and as a center, ako po ‘yung nasa gitna nila dahil sa music video concept po may hatian na magaganap, may rebel girls and may nice girls, then ayon, ako po ‘yung nasa gitna so sana maging maganda kalabasan ng music video. Ito rin po ‘yung music video na sobrang daming change costumes.”
Dreams do really come true as MNL48 Cess was enthused on her MNL48 journey, “Sobrang saya po kasi first music video ko po ito and last time po nasa last rank ako then dati pina-pangarap ko lang n asana makasama ako sa MNL48 music video and sana maka-punta ako sa ibang bansa and ayon nga po nakasama ako sa Japan then ito music video, unti-unti na pong natutupad mga pangarap ko po kaya sobrang saya po. Gagawin po ‘yung best ko para mas matupad ko pa po lahat-lahat.”
