A complete outline of ONE (MONSTER AND INFINITY) | Vevo Footnotes” are listed below:
(00:06) Narration: “One (Monster & Infinity)” is from SuperM’s first full-length album, Super One.
(00:12) BAEKHYUN, TAEMIN, KAI, TAEYONG, TEN, LUCAS, and MARK are the members ofSuperM.”
(00:20) Moonshine, Songwriters: “Hearing the melody of the chorus for the first time gave us goosebumps. From that point, we knew we were onto something very special.”
(00:28) Moonshine, Songwriters: “When writing “Infinity,” we were heavily inspired by the electronic soundscape from Tron: Legacy, the big choirs and organs from Inception, and Interstellar.
(00:34) For “Monster” we aimed for a slightly more aggressive sound, much like the soundtracks from movies such as Suicide Squad.”
(00:42) Narration: BAEKHYUN developed part of the choreography in the early morning before the video shoot.
(00:52) VATA, Choreographer: “BAEKHYUN made everyone laugh almost every moment we practiced.”
(1:02) Beomjin, Music Video Producer: “The set consists of two different backgrounds. One is the outside of a facility where the members are trying to awaken their inner selves.
(1:07) The other is a virtual prison where the inner villain is asleep.”
(1:16) Beomjin, Music Video Producer: ‘We designed it to be modern but cold and desolate, like in a vampire movie.”
(1:28) KAI: “I don’t know if fans know, but when we wore black and neon clothes, the set concept was inspired by a cemetery. I really liked it.”
(1:39) TAEMIN: “There are many hidden elements related to the character’s universe. For example, we express the fact that we’re from outer space by wearing a lens in one eye.”
(1:47) VATA, Choreographer: “SuperM was the inspiration for the choreography. I imagined how they would actually dance and how they would express their emotions.
(1:52) We only had four days to revise the early version’s choreography. Despite the short time, SuperM and staff members put lots of effort into it.
(1:56) And as a result, the final choreography came out really cool.”
(2:03) KAI: “I had to bulk up when filming the music video of “Tiger Inside,” but shortly after that, I went on a diet for “One (Monster & Infinity).
(2:09) It was quite difficult.”
(2:16) Beomjin, Music Video Producer: “We had looked through some classical superhero and animation films and decided to create a virtual movie of a hero finding the power in himself, or a villain trying to escape from prison.
(2:21) We wanted to present the two-faced SuperM.”
