Watch: BTS drops surprise “Black Swan” MV

BTS takes fans off guard by giving “Black Swan” a beautifully shot music video.

Well this was a surprise — BTS released an official music video for “Black Swan” at midnight KST on March 5 (10am EST on March 4).

“Black Swan” was released back in January as the first lead single off the group’s fourth studio album, Map of the Soul: 7, accompanied by an art film featuring dancers from MN Dance Company.

The official MV is absolutely beautiful and I love the elegant, classy vibe they went with. It was filmed in the historic Los Angeles Theatre, located in Downtown LA’s historic Broadway Theatre District. The MV shows the members struggling to overcome their dark sides, or “shadows”. Some even transform into black swan themselves…

…with one exception. The video ends with Jung Kook watching his shadow disappear before walking away, having won his battle. Check it out below.
