Red Velvet gains an impressive achievement with the new song, but it was the creepy theory related to the MV that caught the attention

Red Velvet’s comeback is attracting the attention of a large number of Kpop fans.

At 6 pm on March 21 (KST), Red Velvet officially made a comeback with the MV “Feel My Rhythm”. The title track of the SM girlgroup is a pop-dance song that fuses an elegant sampling Bach‘s “Air on the G-String“.

With a cheerful melody on the strong trap beat background and the message of freedom to enjoy the journey beyond time and space, the song has quickly received much love from fans.

Feel My Rhythm debuted at #9 at MelOn TOP 100 – becoming the highest charting song in 2022 up to now. The song also achieved 41,065 unique listeners in the first hour on MelOn, also the highest achievement this year.

Aside from the outstanding achievement, Red Velvet‘s artistically inspired music video piqued the interest of internet users. The SM girlgroup appears to be recreating iconic art works throughout the video. Fans have come up with a creepy theory based on the meaning of the picture by artist Hironymus Bosch named Garden of Earthly Delights that appears at the end of the MV. Is it likely that Red Velvet is turning into beautiful fairies dancing at the ReVe festival in order to draw viewers into their hell?
