There has been an awakening, have you felt it?
In conjunction with the upcoming release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“, K-Pop idol boy group EXO turned into Jedi knights in the latest music video for “Lightsaber“, their latest collaboration project with the Walt Disney Company Korea.
All EXO members lent their voices to the song, but only Baekhyun, Kai, and Sehun of EXO-K are featured in the collaboration video.
The song opens with Darth Vader’s iconic breathing before transitioning right into the snyth-pop sound that grows into a frenetic EDM breakdown. While it’s not a bass-heavy track, “Lightsaber” has a catchy hook and infectious repetition, making it very ear-pleasing.
As for the video, it is set in a modern day “Star Wars”-inspired world where Sehun, Baekhyun, and Kai are shown wielding their respective lightsabers. Sehun can be seen taking a stroll down a street before walking into a club with a sign that shows “Jedi Only”. Kai, whose right arm is injured in the video, is shown checking out a cut on his face in the mirror while Baekhyun is seen walking around in a grocery store.
The light flickered towards the ending of the video and it seems to suggest that they’re getting into the fight mode as they are interrupted by an unknown force.
Check out the video below:
“Lightsaber” is now available on Apple Music. As for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, it is set to be released on 18th Dec 2015.
