AceShowbiz - EXO-CBX has finally made a comeback in South Korea after being busy promoting in Japan. The subunit of EXO released their sophomore album "Blooming Days" on April 10 along with the music video for their comeback track "Blooming Day".
Directed by VM Project Architecture, the aesthetic visuals features the three-piece group thinking about ways to express their love at various flower-decorated sets. Just like your usual K-Pop music videos, the clip also finds the members dancing to the funky synth-laden track.
"So baby, can I be your boyfriend, can't I?/ I want to show you a world you've never seen/ So baby, can I be your boyfriend, can't I?/ If you want, I want to give you everything," they sing. "Oh baby oh baby/ So your scent can wash all over me/ Oh baby oh baby/ Answer me now."
Soon after the song's release, it has topped Korean real-time charts as well as the iTunes song charts in several countries including Armenia, Mongolia and Saudi Arabia. The album itself has ruled iTunes album charts in 35 countries including Argentina, Chile, Denmark, Finland and India.
The group said of the song during a showcase in support of the album, "We liked it as soon as we heard it, so we immediately chose it as our title track. We also chose this track in order to show a sense of maturity different from that of our first album."
They also shared a funny story from when they shot the music video for the track, mentioning a scene where flowers were being thrown at them. Baekhyun said, "There's a saying, 'Don't hit people even with flowers.' I didn't know that flowers could hurt this much. If you watch the MV, you can see Chen slightly flinching."
Chen also commented, "A staff member said that when Xiumin and I laid down, he would throw flowers and to not be surprised, I thought, 'Why would he say that?' But I thought it was hailing. It really hurt."
