IZ*ONE has recently released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming single “D-D-Dance,” giving fans a preview of its UNIVERSE inspired concept.
The “D-D-Dance Official Music Video Teaser A,” released on the UNIVERSE YouTube channel and its SNS accounts last January 21, comes ahead of the official music video release on January 28.
In the 37-second teaser, all twelve members appear in what appears to be a celestial-themed room – with the night sky as the background to a meeting place, and an armillary sphere floating in the middle of the room. Other shots tease the settings set to appear in the upcoming MV, including a hall of mirrors and a room of curtains and tassel lampshades.
