but here, they show it and it made me remember it,
and it made me dance. – There’s a scene where
we’re in the parking lot when we film it
with the sun coming down right on the sunset,
so we had to… it was like we had
to match the timing of the sun. We actually moved
the whole crew to match the sun’s location
to get that scenery. So, the majority
of the whole music video film shoot was all choreography.
So, it was somewhat physically tiring but as much as we put a lot
of effort into it, it came out nice. – ♪ Playas! ♪

there’s a tiger that I’m walking alongside with
on the street. And… I had to tame the tiger. I’ve been raising that tiger
ever since it was a baby, so… – (FBE staff giggling)
– …you know… – (FBE) Yeah.
– I’m glad that I finally got to put my baby
on the music video. – (Haechan and Taeil laugh) – This was kind of torture.
How do you not move when you wanna move?
– Mm. Kun-chak, kun-chak, kun-chak!
– Mm. – Gun, gun-chak, gun…
– Gun-cha. – (FBE) So, you guys have
a brand new album out! – (all cheer)
– “We Are Superhuman”! Go buy it! – (FBE) And you’ve even been part
of a North American tour through the US and Canada.
What is it like for you guys to be seeing not just yourselves
but K-pop as a whole breaking through worldwide like this at the moment?
– I mean, you just kind of notice how amazing K-pop really is
when you start touring in America or in North America,
because you see all the fans, their diversity, and how
they’re singing along to your Korean songs even though
they don’t speak Korean. And that’s when you notice
that barrier that was there before is now just gone.
– We feel very, very lucky to be part a of this
at this time period. And so, for what we do
and what we love, we’re taking a lot of heart
and a lot of passion into this whole movement.
And so, our team itself is very diverse.
And so, when it comes to taking the global step,
we’re actually very devoted and very committed into this,
and we feel like it’s what we’ve been waiting for.
And so, we’re more passionate than any other.
And we’re just ready to show the world what we’re capable of. – You guys are our energy.
We’re always thankful, and WE LOVE YOU! – Wow!
– Yeah.
