Jackson Wang has released a video for his new single, “LMLY,” which stands for “Leave Me Loving You.”
The clip, which the K-pop idol scripted and co-directed in collaboration with 88rising’s Mamesjao, is a sequel to the video for his 2020 single with Galantis, “Pretty Please.” In it, he plays a busboy who falls in love with one of the restaurant’s regular patrons, and plays out a relationship with her that only exists in his mind.
“I came up with the treatment that follows my previous release ‘Pretty Please,’ still staying in the time zone of ’90s Hong Kong-Chinese movie style,” Wang says in the video’s credits. “The way I decided to shoot the video, it’s more towards [a] movie structure this time, rather than the musical and choreo performances I always do.”
“The storyline of [the] ‘Leave Me Loving You’ music video, it’s another love story. I’m playing a role of a dishwasher in the restaurant and I fell in love with the girl since the day she came in,” he adds. “Everything about this love story only happened in my mind. It’s my imagination. It never happened.”
