The force is with one of Korea's biggest pop acts.

The accompanying video, which is being touted as a "collaboration film" with the famous franchise, sees the nine EXO members in a Star Wars-inspired world where clubs are "Jedi Only" and they carry actual lightsabers.

According to reports, this won't be the only partnership between EXO's record label SM Entertainment (home to acts like Girls' Generation, SHINee and f(x)) and Disney, Star Wars' current home. The collaboration is notable for showing how influential Korean pop stars can be with this song potentially inspiring their (mostly female) fanbase to check out the movie: EXO has huge popularity in Korea and China, they've begun promoting in Japan to a welcomed response, and currently hold the record for biggest sales week ever for a K-pop in America.
