T-Ara’s Jiyeon Does the Unthinkable in ‘Painkillers’ Video

Subscribe to PopCrush on

T-Ara’s Jiyeon does the unthinkable in the video for ‘Painkillers,’ which is a song by a collection of K-Pop artists. She swallows a bottle of pills and commits suicide. Yikes!

It’s a sad video to watch and to Jiyeon’s credit, she’s a great actress. She deftly demonstrates pain and wears it on her face.

But the subject matter is incredibly difficult to, well, swallow, no pun intended, especially since the song stops mid-video and and turns into a mini-film documenting her agonizing anguish as she copes with a breakup.

It’s certainly not meant to advocate suicide. But it does raise more questions than it answers.
