Director Statement

The idea of the music video originated from the lyrics of the song. In the song, a voice sings about the aura of a person and asks him or her to dance with them. The idea of applying this to a potted plant formed the video's conceptual breeding ground. As a result, a concept emerged that is both absurd and abstract. The goal of the music video was to captivate viewers through unfamiliar imagery and a successive escalation of the story to its conclusion. The progression of the narrative is thereby closely tied to the structure of the song, increasingly pushing the concept to its extreme.
