Obvious Story by Maman, a sapphic song depecting an implicit love

Maman (Magolpy) is a Korean pop star known for deliberately cast doubt about her interest in women. Her song called Obvious Story is a beautiful illustration of her aestheticism. The ballad is in fact a game of tease between the audience and the artist. The music video clip follows a romantic friendship between two girls. The representation of their relationship is full of little signs suggesting a lesbian romance but the theme is always hidden in words as in images. So everyone is free to interpret this Obvious Story according to its own expectations. Needless to say that for me the film is a sapphic wink addressed to her fans.
