This MV by mega-group EXO is done completely in one shot! Can you imagine how much practice that took?
EXO is actually made up of 2 groups with 6 members each: EXO-K sings in Korean, and EXO-M sings in Mandarin Chinese. When they all get together, having 12 members on screen can be a little overwhelming, so I really like how they kept them in 2 groups at first.
If my drinking game for SHINee is mouth touching, then my one for EXO is the crotch grab. Seriously, like 3 times in the first 30 sec.
Also, if you notice at 2:14, Kai’s hat falls off, and he has to put it back on during his part. He’s quite smooth about it, a sign of good training. I kinda love that they kept that in there; probably not worth redoing the whole video for a mistake that small. (It’s “correct” in the Mandarin Chinese version, though.)
I love the costumes they chose. The high-school-style uniforms make them look young and cohesive, while letting them individualize their style a bit with the details. And the hats are a great part of the choreography.
