Amidst gothic visuals and chilling sequences, NCT 127’s transformation into the world of the undead is seamless and adds to the eerie festivity.
3. ENHYPEN’s “Given-Taken”
Delving deep into the realms of the unknown and the mystical, ‘Given-Taken’ is a sonic masterpiece.

5. PURPLE KISS’ “Zombie”
Breathing new life into the age-old undead narrative, PURPLE KISS infuses a playful element into the traditionally spine-chilling theme.
