Henry Lau, professionally known as Henry and a member of Super Junior M (a sub-unit group of Super Junior), has released his music video for new single “1-4-3 (I Love You)” featuring label mate Amber of f(x).
“1-4-3 (I Love You)” is a playful electro-pop banger off his first solo EP, “Trap.” The track, produced and composed by Noizebank (a composing team that Henry created and is a part of), has thumping synth sounds and a head-bopping beat.
Throughout the track, the Canadian-Chinese singer-songwriter — who is non-fluent in Korean — describes the difficulty he goes through expressing his feelings to a Korean woman and the frustrations of the language and culture barriers they face. (The numbers “1-4-3” mean “I love you” in the States while the numbers “4-8-6” are used in Korea).
The music video breaks away from SM’s typical music video production. Henry can be seen cheerfully strolling around, making music, goofing around with buddies, recording in a studio, flaunting his footwork in front of an escalator, and dancing in what seems to be a parking lot (a set that seems strikingly similar to EXO’s second version music video for “Growl”). f(x)’s Amber makes a cameo, offering a confident rap verse.
Ahead of the music video release, Henry warmed up fans by putting out two teasers, including a 23-second teaser and an acoustic performance clip where he sings accompanied by EXO’s Chanyeol on guitar.
For the next several weeks, Henry is set to start promoting his new track with support from Amber and his Super Junior band mates, Eunhyuk and Donghae. U.S. fans can meet Henry at a special artist-centric booth at KCON this weekend in LA while Amber will perform with f(x). More details here.
