Emotional Scars Never Fade in the MV for DEEP GIRL’s Second Single “I kill”!
[Warning: The MV contains graphic scenes that some viewers might find disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.]
Bullying. Wrist cutting. Suicide. Enjo Kousai. Identity Loss. Loneliness. Fear. Desperation. These are some of the themes running through the MV for DEEP GIRL’s second single, “I kill” (release date: February 17)!
The video re-enacts Mashilo Suzukawa being brutally bullied in school, physically and verbally. But the bullying does not end there. Snapshots of cyber bullying are shown in some scenes where she was called fat, disgusting and told to disappear.
In Japan, such cases of group bullying exist and little is done to stop it. The victim is bullied in silence, and in a few cases, leads to suicide, as shown in Mashilo’s opening scene. With a father consumed by work and a mother who busies herself with cooking delicious meals for her, Mashilo feels that there is no one who she can speak to about her problems, leading her to apologize to them for taking her own life.
Some girls who have lost their identity resort to enjo kousai (literally “compensated dating”, a euphemism for prostitution), thinking that with money, they are able to get a better life. But through the work, they realize that they are nothing but just a transparent doll to their clients. Without a home to return to, and neither family nor friends to talk to, some feel that suicide is their only way out.
