SEVENTEEN’s THE8 Woos Fans In “Side By Side” Music Video
The SEVENTEEN member’s latest single is sure to charm fans all over the world.
SEVENTEEN’s THE8 has finally released his third single, Side By Side, alongside a compelling music video, which dropped at 6 P.M. KST on April 13. This follows his last release, Falling Down, which was released in May 2020 and Dreams Come True in June 2019.
According to Pledis Entertainment’s description of the music video on HYBE LABELS’ official YouTube channel, this latest single “showcases THE8’s unique sentimentality and his growth as an artist.”
This is the first time THE8 has released a single in both Chinese and Korean. Both singles prior to Side By Side were released in Chinese.
The music video starred THE8, who was on a mission to woo his female counterpart, trainee and former contestant on Mnet’s Produce 48, Shin Su Hyun. The singer seemed to be quite unlucky in his quest and struggled to capture his leading lady’s attention.
THE8 and Shin Su Hyun not only displayed their phenomenal acting skills, but also showcased their dancing skills. The two were seen in a variety of settings, such as a library and during a workout session.
Pledis Entertainment also wrote in the music video’s description that, “his [THE8’s] portrayal of a man fallen in love in the music video makes it clear once again why he is indeed a global all-around entertainer.”
The music video also featured surprise appearances by fellow SEVENTEEN members, Jun, DK, and Dino, who acted as wingmen for THE8.
