On April 10th, rookie girl group The Ark made their official debut with the release of their music video for “The Light.”
The music video features a mother-daughter pair played by actress Jo Min Soo and member Halla respectively. The fomer’s appearance is highly anticipated as it is her first role in a music video in 17 years since Jo Sung Mo‘s “To Heaven” in 1998.
In the music video, the two are shown in their home lives, playful and loving, as they get ready for their days and head off to school and work. Although they sometimes face the usual mother-daughter bickerings, their sweet relationship is shown through touching small gestures.
Despite the lively scenes and upbeat music, the video’s storyline takes a dark turn with a tragic accident. With its emotional music video, “The Light” has received much positive attention from fans who comment on the sudden plot twist and on the soothing, light vocals and rap that the group offers.
