On October 23, SEVENTEEN released their latest album, SEVENTEENTH HEAVEN, along with the music video for its title track, “God of Music”.
Most of the music video was filmed in Budapest, Hungary, showcasing the beautiful landscapes and scenery of the country.

However, there’s one brief clip from the video that wasn’t filmed in Budapest. In fact, it wasn’t filmed in any country at all!
From about 3:13-3:20, the scene shows a disco ball microphone seemingly floating high in the sky above the ground, and then switches to it floating in outer space. And it turns out, this wasn’t achieved through green screen, but is actual footage taken for the music video!
Pledis Entertainment worked with a company called Sent Into Space to get the takes, and they shared a behind-the-scenes look at the original footage on their Twitter account.
Check out what SEVENTEEN did with our footage for their latest music video!
We worked with K-pop supergroup @pledis_17‘s & SL8 to launch a disco ball microphone into space for their MV ‘음악의 신’ ‘God of Music’🎤🚀🧑🎤#SEVENTEEN #세븐틴 #GodOfMusic #음악의신 #PLEDIS #hybe pic.twitter.com/3WR8cplBE4

Fans are amazed that SEVENTEEN had the funds to use for such an undoubtedly expensive collaboration for such a short part of the music video. It just goes to show how much their incredible album sales numbers have allowed the K-Pop group to spend on their musical projects!
SEVENTEEN really said “green screen who?” bcs they literally send a mic with disco ball on the outer space. damn pic.twitter.com/uAnETpcerG

so you’re telling me that the kids who had $5 and a dream 8 years ago can already afford sending things to the space just for a 3-second clip ?! https://t.co/7ilrL5Q874
