On June 28th, GFRIEND released a video called ‘A Tale of the Glass Bead: Butterfly Effect’ ahead of their comeback. Check it out below!
GFRIEND ‘A TALE OF THE GLASS BEAD: BUTTERFLY EFFECT’ VIDEO:
This video acts as a continuation in the group’s story which started since debut and has been fleshed out through recent comebacks. In their last comeback, they released a similar ‘A Tale of the Glass Bead’ video. In the video, we see member Eunha in front of a crossroads leading to two paths. A group of butterflies then flies over towards the path on the left, leading her to follow them. The narration then states by following the path, all the members could finally find and be together with each other. However, as we see the other members also running, they start to question whether it was the right path to take.
By the end, we see Eunha after having fallen down, wake up upon hearing a song in the darkness. The short harmony leads her to an apple tree. She picks an apple off the tree as the narration details this is the story of their parting at the fork on the road. Throughout the teaser, there’s an orchestral instrumental that backs it up, giving it a dreamy atmosphere.
Many fans are intrigued about the overall story arc for the group as it becomes more complex. They also noted that each of the outfits the members (except Yerin) worn in the video come from different previous eras and comebacks, meaning there a sense of continuity within all their MVs. All the excitement surrounding the story has hyped the the group’s comeback.
More teasers will be released in the coming days, leading to the album’s release.
GFRIEND‘s 10th mini album, ‘回: Song of the Sirens’ will be released on July 13th, 6PM KST!
