How The Making Of BTS Suga’s “Haegeum” MV Unexpectedly Involved LE SSERAFIM

Not the HYBE interaction anybody saw coming…

BTS‘s Suga did a Weverse live on April 25, KST, talking to fans about his solo album D-Day.

Though Suga is preparing to hit the stage and kick off his solo tour on April 26, just a day after, he took his time to answer fans’ questions about the album and share behind-the-scenes stories about the making process.

While talking about his title track, “Haegeum,” Suga revealed some of the major difficulties he faced while filming its music video. ARMYs had already figured out that the picturesque location of the music video was in Thailand, which Suga confirmed during this livestream.

He also added that initially, he had planned to shoot the video in Korea. But it was difficult to scout new locations that viewers had not already seen in other K-Pop music videos. However, there was one suitable location that he had his eyes on, but before he could finalize it, his HYBE junior, LE SSERAFIM, already reserved it for one of their music videos. So, Suga decided to film the music video in Thailand in a new setting.

But shooting in a foreign country proved quite tricky for the rapper. He admitted that his stamina couldn’t always keep up with the hot climate. He mentioned that the opening scene of the music video, where Agust D stabs a man with chopsticks, was tough because it was hot, and they had to shoot without air conditioning.

It goes without saying that Suga worked very hard on D-Day, but hearing about the nitty-gritty involved in its making process has only made fans appreciate it even more!
