MV Lessons: Gugudan’s “Chococo” shows drug use is OK in Korea if directing music videos

Sejeong & The Nuguettes are back with the music video for “Chococo” to teach us all a lesson about Korean society. Basically that despite appearing to be against all kinds of recreational drug use, it’s totally fine to do if you’re a music video director.

Don’t tell me this wasn’t intended and conceptualized while high as fuck.
