The clip features the South Korean girl group wandering through a dense forest in the middle of the night while following a mysterious compass. The clip also features scenes of the individual members in a dimly lit laboratory filled with strange experiments.
“Oh now I come back home / Don’t stop, run to the light / Staying in eternal time like this / She’s no longer here / Last dance all day long,” the group sing on the dark dance-pop song. The first half of the ‘Last Dance’ video can be watch on YouTube, with the full version available exclusively on UNIVERSE.
(G)I-DLE recently re-recorded ‘Last Dance’ as a five-member group, without vocals from sixth member Soojin. The singer was cut from the project after discussions between (G)I-DLE’s agency CUBE Entertainment and UNIVERSE.
The platform noted in a statement to Dong-A Ilbo, as translated by Soompi, that its decision to re-record ‘Last Dance’ stems from “an issue” related to Soojin that “occurred in March”. In addition, the music video has also be re-edited to minimise her appearance.
(G)I-DLE’s most recent release was the mini-album ‘I Burn’, which was released in January. The project featured the single ‘HWAA’, which became their best-charting song on the Gaon Digital Chart, peaking at number four.
In other K-pop news, ITZY are set to release their fourth mini-album ‘Guess Who’ on April 30.
