The choreo for this release, like for most of Bangtan Boys' music, is incredible. They are absolutely killer, on point and flawlessly smoothe. The moves are so deeply dramatic and so starkly impressive that they should have had a place in the MV. That said, they've helpfully provided an epic practice vid to soothe the ache of missing it in the MV.
The track is incredible, a beautiful leap of maturity that is every bit as impressive as the story of growth depicted in the MV. Honestly, it reminds me a bit of Big Bang's old Japanese stuff from like 2009/10-ish. It's an impressive bit of vocal development and stylistically, it's a gorgeous evolution of what Bangtan Boys' is known to be fully capable of pulling off. Their voices have matured in all the right ways and their impressive style is as flexible as ever, bringing a slide of aggression and angst into focus against the backdrop of a hella catchy melody.
