At midnight KST on April 18, HYBE Labels officially dropped the debut trailer titled “FEARLESS TRAILER ‘The World Is My Oyster’” for upcoming rookie girl group LE SSERAFIM. As soon as it was released, the trailer received mixed reactions.

In the 3 minutes and 2 seconds long video, LE SSERAFIM members show off their alluring visuals. The dark and mysterious yet elegant and powerful concept has especially grabbed the attention. The well-shot scenes with the fast-paced background music keep viewers on the edge of their seats. What makes the trailer unique is the ghostly and intimidating vibes it radiates. Many fans say it feels like they are watching a horror movie.

The scene in which the car “releases” smoke also has similarities.

In particular, the fact that LE SSERAFIM’s trailer rewinds half of the video is also interesting. However, many people realize that this way of rewinding is no different from what LOONA often did before. Also in the Why Not teaser, LOONA rewinded the last scene in which the shoes stepped on the sand. LOONA members used to rewind the X X teaser as well.

Since being revealed to the public, LE SSERAFIM has been embroiled in a lot of controversies. In particular, HYBE’s silence over member Garam’s scandal angered both fans and netizens. People expressed displeasure as Garam appeared in many scenes.

Netizens are annoyed as Garam is gradually “whitewashing” successfully.

Watching LE SSERAFIM’s debut trailer, many praised HYBE and Source Music for their fine investment in the girls. However, some are concerned that the company’s choice of LE SSERAFIM’s concept is too similar to LOONA. Therefore, viewers are looking forward to whether there will be a breakthrough regarding the group’s official MV.
