Mi Lu Bing's Nic finds reel-life kissing "difficult"

A few days ago, members of Singaporean rock band Mi Lu Bing were busy filming a music video for their title track in their upcoming music album. The music video tells the story between Nic and Elynn, a sweet loving couple. Due to various reasons, Nic had to leave and decided to place Elynn in the care of his good friend, Sam. Weiqi will take on the role as a storyteller.

The highlight of this music video is a kissing scene between Nic and his leading lady. In an interview, drummer Sam shared, "Nic has the best acting skills amongst the three of us. We are like blocks of wood, he is more expressive Lucky it [the male lead] is not me!"

Nic protested at his good friend's words and exclaimed that he was framed. The lead guitarist and singer revealed that he was both worried and stressed out during the night before filming took place.

True to his words, the singer was a bundle of nerves and acted a little too stiff during the rehearsal session. During his first take, he appeared quite natural and was applauded by his fellow band members for his efforts. However, Nic had to do a retake at the perfectionist director's request.

On his second take, Nic let out a little laugh and had to reshoot the same scene again. He accidentally hit the lighting on this third try and finally succeeded in a good and smooth take on his fourth attempt.

Afraid of troubling the entire crew, Nic kept reminding himself not to commit any NGs. during his passionate kiss with the leading lady. Unlike reel-life, both Nic and Elynn are attached with their respective other halves. The pair revealed that their other halves did not mind their participation in the music video.

Nic compared reel-life kissing to that of real-life, "It is more difficult because so many people are looking!"

Mi Lu Bing's latest album will be available from early November onwards.


Any other Mi Lu Bing fans here? :)
