The music video itself is quite dark but it has a lot of interesting transitions. Bambam and Seulgi show that they are a good team by the duo choreography they dance to throughout the entire video.

As for the song, it is very catchy. From the melody to the duo’s vocals, the song is absolutely stunning. The lyrics are also very hopeful and beautiful. 

Bambam’s and Seulgi’s fans also prove their utmost excitement and loyalty by sending the song to the top of the charts! As of December 28 KST, the song debuted at #10 on the worldwide iTunes song chart and #17 on the European iTunes song chart. As well as the fact that it topped the charts in over 20 countries.

It also went Number 1 on the Real-time Genie charts. 

In the evening of December 28, Bambam and Seulgi also went live on Instagram to talk a little about the collaboration. Bambam revealed that he called Seulgi without any expectations on a ‘yes’. Seulgi, however, really liked the song. 

This was overall such an amazing collaboration of two amazing artists. It feels like they are just good friends who are making art together and are very happy about it. This might change the game for idol collaboration for good.
