K-Pop band SuperM releases new music video shot in Dubai

The video comes with the debut of their self-titled mini album, which features seven songs

SuperM, the so-called Avengers of K-pop, have released their first music video Jopping, which was filmed in Dubai over the summer.

Within six hours of its premiere, the video had garnered over 3 million views. Its arrival comes with the release of SuperM’s debut album, which contains seven songs.

The K-pop boy band is a supergroup comprised of seven members from four other existing bands, all under the same entertainment company, SM Entertainment.

Jopping is the self-titled album’s first track. The word is a portmanteau of “jumping” and “popping”, which the seven-member band claim is “how they get down”.

The video shows band members – Taemin, Baekhyun, Kai, Taeyong, Ten, Lucas Mark – riding motorbikes around Happiness Street in Business Bay and Al Khail Road, driving down Meydan Bridge, and performing on a stretch of highway in the desert. One of the members, Taemin, sings and dances to his verse in a vast desert expanse, the Dubai skyline in the background.

There are also scenes of the band performing their energetic choreography in a futuristic stadium, and an array of jump-cuts featuring robots assembling a structure, helicopters flying over empty highways and a tank running across the dunes.
