Taeyeon's Eye of Horus

Girls’ Generation member Taeyeon recently completed promotions for her first solo venture through her mini album, “I”. Featured throughout the music video and teaser images were subtle references to occult themes, specifically duality and the eye of Horus.

The eye of Horus or the one eye hidden element should be familiar to even the most light reader of Illuminati so I won’t spend much time on that.

One alter is “free”, roaming green pastures, wearing light colors and generally seems happier. The other alter wears darker colors and is seen in a restrictive working environment. The plot of the music video is for the “dark” alter and the “light” alter to finally meet and merge together.

Of course, it might not mean anything at all but given SM’s past that is highly unlikely.

It’s late April and we are beginning to see a boy group rush similar to the girl group version we experienced last fall. Returning to the scene is one of the most successful rookies of the first half of the year, B.A.P. I’ve always been suspicious of them since their debut because of these pictures:

The Eye of Horus

The super rookies have returned with a concept darker and more sinister. Here’s one of the concept images:

Do you notice how it is always the same member for covering his eye? Is he the 'sacrifice'?

This post is the introduction to the analysis I will be doing on their new MV ‘Power’. There a lot of material to cover and I have my finals soon so it might be a little while before the post materializes.
