As many of you already know, EXO released two music videos today. The first one is for “Monster” and the second one is “Lucky One”. I'm excited for both of these releases because it's been a while since EXO has had a comeback. The last one, I think was about this time last year, maybe even a little earlier in the year. Let's just say I'm excited. You guys should know how this is going to work. I review both music videos in one post.
The music video for “Monster” wasn't anything extraordinary, but at the same time it was beyond amazing! It was a post-apocalyptic world where the members are all “monsters” that are being chained up and taken away. At the end of the video, I think it's Sehun (forgive me if I got that wrong) comes and rescues them. The video was pretty ordinary, but the dancing was mind blowing. It literally gave me chills.
The song was amazing too. For all those ARMYs that said “Fire” was lit, they hadn't had a chance to listen to this song and realize that this song was actually the truth. This song was fire! It was a trap song, high energy, but at the same time, in the same format as almost every EXO song. There was verse-chorus-verse-chorus-ballad breakdown-rap breakdown-then a final chorus. However, it was phenomenal!
Now the music video for “Lucky One” was a bit more entertaining. The premise was about the members of EXO trying to escape from a hospital. We aren't really sure if it is a mental hospital or an asylum, but they are trying to escape nonetheless. At the very end of the video, it is revealed that, like in Overdose, they are in a maze which is the EXO logo.
The song was catchy but didn't grab my attention like “Monster” did. I saw on Twitter that JRE from JREKML said that it sounded like a Daft Punk song and I can totally agree with that. It sounds just like that simple techno style that Daft Punk owns. This song was definitely a lot more laid back and chill than “Monster”.
There are my reviews of “Monster” and “Lucky One” by EXO. I personally liked “Monster” better, but which did you like more? Please like, comment, and share this with all your friends, everywhere. I'll be back soon enough to review the next set of music videos that come out. Also, I'm going to be releasing my review of “Descendants of the Sun”. Stay tuned.
