EXO, the once 12 member group from SM Entertainment, now down to 9 members, is a boy group that divides itself up into two languages EXO-K who sing in Korean and EXO-M that sing in Mandarin. The group debuted in 2012 with the hit “Mama” and followed it up with record breaking song “Growl”. EXO just recently released a music video for their collaboration with Star Wars called “Lightsaber”. Lightsaber is a collaboration with Disney, the company that owns the rights to Star Wars and is a sort of teaser for “The Force Awakens”, the 7th episode of the epic space saga.
Okay, so I’ve now watched the music video and I will break this down into parts for you all. The first thing that happens is you hear the infamous Darth Vader breathing. That did it for me. I got super excited when that part happened. The music video doesn’t have anything special in it. There are lightsabers seen several times throughout the video but never lit up until the very end. Basically it follows a “Jedi” that goes around town and finds himself in a club for “Jedis only”. Then out in the hallway, the elevator opens and a glow of red shows on his face and then they pull out their lightsabers.
The music in this video was awesome. It kind of repeated the word “lightsaber” over and over again, but the dubstep feel in this song was awesome especially since after the first drop of the dubstep you expect it to do a rapid fire thing but it didn’t. It kind of followed up with a more synth effect which I liked a lot. This song was awesome as well as the video.
That’s my reaction of “Lightsaber” by EXO. It was awesome and if you haven’t watched it, you should watch it. Right now! What was your favorite part of this music video? Are you excited for the Force Awakens?
