SuperM Releases Debut Music Video for ‘Jopping’
After months of anticipation, SuperM’s debut is finally here. The group dropped their first album, SuperM – The 1st Mini Album, and a music video for their lead single, “Jopping.” SuperM goes on tour later in 2019 and the beginning of 2020. The group’s first concert is on Oct. 5.
The music video shows SuperM joining together to perform
The music video for “Jopping” incorporates the superhero concept from SuperM’s teaser trailers. Kai teleports into the group formation and both Ten and Taemin put on holographic suits. The video features intense special effects.
Kai rides in a helicopter, Taemin rides a motorcycle, and Taeyong and Mark have a car chase. Lucas and Ten meet in the desert and ride in a tank. The group also comes together and walks into a large arena. In the arena, they perform “Jopping” for a large crowd.
The music video alternates between the members performing in the arena and navigating their way to the arena, whether it’s by helicopter, car, or motorcycle. The video showcases the group’s impressive dance skills.
The song also features Ten returning to rapping along with Taeyong, Lucas, Kai, and Mark. Kai was also the center in the dance formation at several parts of the video. Taemin and Baekhyun showed off their impressive vocals, with Baekhyun hitting an incredible high note towards the end of the song.
