Once again, we are calling all EXO-Ls, Shawols and NCTzens! Our “Jopping” boys are back with another powerful music video.
Gearing up for the drop of their full-length album “Super One” on Sept. 25, the avengers of K-pop SuperM just released their second pre-release single “Tiger Inside.” After almost a year of waiting, the boys graced us with an energetic and fast-paced comeback on Aug. 14 with “100” featuring a racer concept that swept us off our feet. This time, we saw the members unleash the tiger inside with their killer choreography, jaw-dropping high notes and that fierce growl from Taeyong.
However, SM Entertainment almost dropped the music video earlier than planned. Earlier today, some fans caught the company premiering the “Tiger Inside” music video before they quickly switched it to private. Despite the fans hilariously labeling the incident as a “SuperM intern’s” mishap, we still got the music video in time so no harm done here.
Here are some of our favorite moments from the roaring music video:
Mark Lee gives the mullet a hot pink comeback
Maknae and main rapper Mark Lee kicks off the music video and we just have to talk about his hair. We caught a glimpse of Mark’s new ‘do at the teaser photos, but seeing it in action was the cultural reset we never thought we needed. Mullets are making a comeback and what better way to celebrate than seeing a hot pink twist on the K-pop supergroup’s main rapper. Not only this, but he also pairs this with striking dark eyeliner—staring into our souls and capturing our hearts.
Taeyong’s new looks and that animal-print motorcycle
We recently talked about how Taeyong’s visuals can’t be contested and we can’t help but say the same for “Tiger Inside.” The music video features the blonde rapper spitting bars and that iconic growl on top of what we could guess was a tiger-print motorcycle. Not only this, he also graced us with multiple looks that definitely got us swooning. I mean, Taeyong wearing a pony-tail in one scene and donning that black cropped top in another? SM Entertainment knew he’d be too powerful if he wore both together.
Different members got to dance at the center
It’s a no brainer that SuperM has a strong dance line, just ask any EXO-L, Shawol and NCTzen. While most of the fans are familiar with Taeyong being the group’s center and Kai being the main dancer, we got to see different members take the center of each dance formation this time in “Tiger Inside.” From Lucas taking the lead after his “bring it on” line at the start to Ten leading the dance break at the second chorus, it all happened too fast for us to take a decent screenshot. We can’t wait to see a live performance video of the whole thing.
