I made this poster in anticipation for the release of Taeyeon’s new song “I Got Love” music video on 18 February 2017.
The idea actually came to me in early January 2017. On one of those lazy weekend afternoons, I was lying on my bed and resting with my Bobo. I closed my eyes and let the energy from the universe seep into my mind. After awhile, I began to see a smiling face of Tiffany. And then, she made a love sign using her hands, the way like those in my self-made poster. It wasn’t the common way of doing a love hand sign. It was specifically that way. And then slowly, I started to see a diamond glowing out from her hand sign. Her hands fitted perfectly into that diamond. Immediately, I thought it was a really great idea for a drawing or an art piece! But because this idea involved Tiffany, I was thinking of waiting till sometime nearer to August to make it as a present for her birthday. So I put that plan on hold.
It was until the original poster came out about 2 or 3 days before the release of the “I Got Love” MV that I was reminded of the idea again. The main theme of the MV is a diamond. I thought my idea was so perfectly suitable for this song! Diamond + Love Hand Sign = I Got Love. So I told Taenggu about it and said I would make a drawing to show her how that diamond exactly looked like in my head. In the end, in order to make things quicker, I decided to edit the 2 images together using my phone, instead of drawing it. So yes, that was how it looked like. I was so pleased with how well the image turned out. 😀 It was probably an early hint from the universe about Taenggu’s new song, but of course, I didn’t know what it meant at that time.
On a sidenote, on 30 December 2016, I happened to purchase a phone cover online, one for me and Taenggu each, which looks like this:
Coincidentally, it has a quote about diamond too! I bought it as a form of moral support for the both of us. Was it just pure coincidence or an early intuition that this song was about to happen?

I found a photo of Taenggu doing the same love hand sign!
