Minzy Comes Out Swinging in Ninano

After what seems like far too long for fans, Minzy has made her solo debut with“Ninano.” Having finished up her contract with YG and signed with The Music Works, this music video shows a new direction for Minzy while building on recognisable and reliable themes. Even better, both the song and the music video put the emphasis solidly back onto Minzy as an individual and her passion for dance.

Looking at the visual aesthetics, the theme of dancing is identified and catered to from the get-go. There are dance sequences with back up dancers as well as scenes of her dancing in front of the mirror. The mirror scenes are both interesting and a little different as we barely see her face; just her body moving and her hair whipping about. It highlights Minzys new persona and brings the focus onto the dance, reinforcing the topic of the song.

Gong Minzy, who recently made her solo debut, released a dance practice video of her title song, NINANO!

In the video, the talented singer explains that going solo has served up a number of challenges for her, especially since there are already high expectations for her as a spectacular dancer. She describes how she tried to choreograph the dance as perfectly as possible to meet those expectations.

Although she makes the dance look easy on stage, the video shows that, surprisingly, she struggled with it at certain points. Through the clip, its easy to see that she worked extremely hard to get to that point, despite her natural talent.
