Just a few weeks after its release, the MV of the title track “영웅 (英雄; Kick It)” has already reached over 35 million views on YouTube. The well-deserved hype is highly influenced by the video’s unique Chinese-themed aesthetics. One must also not disregard the powerful choreography shadowing the movements of Chinese martial arts.
The track itself contains lyrics of braving through the trauma of your past and fighting its dominion over your present. Moreover, the Chinese word 英雄 and Korean word 영웅, from the song’s title, both directly translate to “hero”, thus the overall daring feel of the anthem.
Besides, it hasn’t been long since SM Entertainment confirmed that NCT 127 is preparing for a repackaged version of their second studio album “Neo Zone,” set to be released in May. Let’s ease the agony of waiting by checking out and streaming NCT 127’s MV 영웅 (英雄; Kick It) below!
