Paju native Lee Michelle (이미쉘) made a big splash during the first season of SBS’ “K-Pop Star.” In addition to her formidable singing chops, she also stood out because of her biracial heritage (her mother is Korean and her father is African-American). After some intervening drama over an ill-fated girl group she had belonged to, Lee has finally released her first single, “Without You.”

While the song’s lyrics allude to a broken romance, the amazing video takes a different tack by addressing the racism Lee faced growing up in South Korea. The clip portrays a little girl (who appears to represent Lee at a younger age) fleeing from an unseen threat and confronting a wall scrawled with ugly, racist graffiti.

Despite the troubling subject matter, the video ultimately strikes an inspiring, hopeful tone. “Without You” is a moving and deeply personal statement of purpose from a talented young recording artist at the start of her career. It’d be hard to imagine a more promising debut.

This…is a beautiful video.
