MONSTA X‘s newest music video “LOVE” features scenes so mesmerizing, that some members even thought they were created using CGI. Instead, the scenes were very much real.
In a recently dropped video, MONSTA X reacted to “LOVE.” Though they mentioned they were able to preview earlier versions and suggest edits, they hadn’t seen the full video yet.
Fans aren’t the only ones intrigued by music videos. K-Pop idols are not always present for the filming of other members’ scenes, so the music video is often a surprise for them as well.
Kihyun was surprised to learn that one of I.M‘s scenes hadn’t been shot with CGI.
During the scene, the walls extend outwards and the floor becomes wider, but it wasn’t CGI making this work. Instead, this was accomplished with the music video set.
While this was interesting, the members were most shocked by the glitter scenes. Both Hyungwon and Kihyun have scenes where gold glitter falls all around them.
It’s so captivating that Minhyuk had to ask Hyungwon if they really sprinkled glitter on him while filming or if they used CGI. Hyungwon revealed that they had sprinkled a ton, and it wasn’t computer generated.
When reacting to Kihyun’s part, I.M noted that it must have been difficult to shower after all of the glitter fell into his hair.
Unfortunately for Kihyun, even with vigorous scrubbing, he ended up having glitter in his hair for four days!
He even uploaded a brief video to Instagram that shows a bit of the behind the scenes, and the amount of glitter is well… a lot.
The tough shower was worth it though for such beautiful shots!
Fans definitely agree and can’t wait to see the full music video behind the scenes.
♡ the glitter and sparkles making him look so godly ethereal 😩✨💫
