The Scene In Jeon Somi’s “XOXO” Music Video That’s Rarely Seen In K-Pop, According To Celebrity Makeup Artist Pony
Throughout the years, numerous K-Pop music videos have been released. Due to this, many themes and concepts have been reused over and over again. Jeon Somi‘s latest MV for “XOXO,” however, had a scene that has rarely been used before—at least according to Pony, her makeup artist!
As a celebrity makeup artist, Pony has been to many music video sites before, including the “XOXO” shoot. She talked about some behind the scenes stories from the day in a recent reaction video.
For her, the most shocking part was seeing a building explode right before her eyes. It was the first time she had ever witnessed it in her life, even as a veteran in the field.
Throughout my career, I’ve been on quite a few sets, but it was my first time seeing a building explode.
The scene in question occurs towards the end when Somi “accidentally” drops a switch, which ignites an explosion behind her.
Even if Pony was only watching from the sidelines, she could already feel the heat! To her surprise, she also felt some sparks.
I was watching from a distance, but even from a distance, it was so hot. Even though I was far away, I felt these little sparks popping off.
“So I was worried that Somi might get hurt,” she added.
It says a lot about Somi that she continued to say in character the entire time a building was exploding behind her!
In the same reaction video, Pony praised Somi’s professionalism on set even when filming conditions were difficult. Read about what Somi did here:
