The video starts with Aoki driving during the day and grooving along to the song as the backing track to his solo trip. It then switches to scenes of Monsta X hanging out together as they sing the chill dance track, switching between scenes set in bedrooms and studies with ones of the group performing sleek choreography to the tune.
Traditional Korean elements, like fans and folding screens and Korean phrases, including the term “Airplane Mode,” are incorporated throughout, further emphasizing the East-meets-West vibe of the collaboration.
“Play It Cool” was originally released in Korean last month on Monsta X’s Take.2 We Are Here, which peaked at No. 5 on the World Albums chart dated March 2. The septet is set to launch their world tour in April, and will head Stateside in July and August.
