Seventeen released a teaser for ‘Darl+ing’
Leading up to the release of “Darl+ing,” Seventeen shared multiple teasers on social media including concept photos and a voice message.
On April 14 at midnight KST, Seventeen released the official teaser for “Darl+ing.” The teaser opens with the members of Seventeen walking through a wheat field.
The lyrics, “You know without you, I’m so lonely /When you’re not here, 911 calling /Into your head, again I’m diving,” can be heard.
S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu, Vernon, Jeonghan, Joshua, Woozi, DK, Seungkwan, Jun, Hoshi, The8, and Dino are then seen in a sunlit home reading, eating food, and dancing.
Fans can then hear the repeated lyrics “I’ma treat you better /I’ma treat you better / I’ma see you better /I’ma see you better.”
The band members play together in the wheat field while Wonwoo is blindfolded, but when he removes his blindfold he finds that he is alone.
As he looks for the other members, the lyrics “Kiss me, baby,” are heard at the end of the video.
What Carat thought of the ‘Darl+ing’ teaser
After Seventeen shared the teaser for “Darl+ing,” fans of the K-pop group shared their thoughts about the preview on social media.
“WOW-the music video! The props! The sets! The concept may look fantasy—but it hits me like the SVT creative collective house, or artists’ colony. Which is what the boys do in real life, but in less colorful surroundings in the city…,” one fan wrote on Reddit.
Another fan wrote on Reddit, “I was thinking the visuals looked a bit Hobbit-y but Peter Pan and the Lost Boys makes much more sense… there’s such a sense of wistfulness and nostalgia. I think this song is going to work on one level for the Western gp who don’t know who SVT is and on another for the fandom.”
“We’re getting another bop guys,” wrote a Reddit user.
