The first teaser for ‘Blue Hour’
TXT released the first music video teaser for “Blue Hour” on Oct. 18 at 11 a.m. ET. The teaser was released on YouTube and Big Hit Entertainment’s social media channels. Before releasing the first official music video teaser, Big Hit Entertainment released individual teaser trailers of Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai.
The first music video teaser opened with the members of TXT sitting in a tree at sunset looking out at a Ferris wheel in the distance. In the next scene, Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai were seen wearing all white as they relaxed in an open field.
The group ran across the field toward the Ferris wheel, and then the teaser cut to the final scene. In the night, Beomgyu looked at the glowing Ferris wheel before looking at the ground.
TXT released a second teaser for ‘Blue Hour’
With the imagery and slowed-down arrangement, the first music video teaser had a feeling of longing. However, TXT fans knew that the song could end up being different than the arrangement played in the first teaser. The second “Blue Hour” teaser strikes a different tone and features an upbeat disco sound from the original track.
At 25 seconds long, the second teaser is shorter than the first music video teaser and it moves at a faster pace. The five members sit in the tree and smile at the camera. In the next scene, Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai sprint through an open field. For the final part of the music video teaser, the quintet performs joyful choreography in front of an illuminated carousel.
