As the Korean title literally translates to “Transparent Umbrella”, Onew talks about how it feels like to watch the rain pattering away through a transparent umbrella, and even told listeners that this would be the perfect song to listen to during rainy days. After the introduction ended, a snippet of the song was played, giving us the first listen of the song.
2 photo teasers were also released at the same time, one being a group photo and the other an enormous collage of Taemin.
