From this blog on the Korean wave.

Now, some of these groups I had never heard of, such as KISS, so I did a bit of googling and discovered this about KISS's first video:

Filmed as a mini-movie, it shows the love story of a photographer and a girl that he photographed. While trying to retrieve a film solution, the girl accidentally tips over the bottle and the liquid spills into her eyes, rendering her blind. The photographer then donates his eyes in order to allow her to see. Not realising the sacrifice he made, she becomes bitter because he hasn't dropped by to see her. While at the park, she helps a blind man pick something up from the ground, and she is stunned to see her photographer boyfriend. Without saying a word, she stands silent as he walks away with his guide dog.

Aigo…
