Receiving an explosive response upon release, KARD's new song "Don't Recall" became a hot sensation reaching 2 million views on YouTube in just 24 hours and was the top trending topic on Twitter.

In light of this, a new theory video was created by Dream Teller, breaking down the theories in the music video segment by segment.  As seen from the music video, it contains various hidden symbols and messages.  Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Like the name, each KARD member represents a card from the deck: B.M as King (Blue).

 J.Seph as Ace (Red).

Somin as Black Joker (Black), and Jiwoo as Color Joker (Multicolor). 

Dream Teller added, "It seems they are in some kind of duel?"  

Dream Teller points out some key sequences: 

The Beginning of Tragedy represented by a chandelier foreshadowing an event to come.

Throne clearly presented by the crystal chess board and pieces meaning conflict. Since B.M represents the King, he moves the King chess piece and sits in the middle of KARD. But J.Seph as an Ace counters by moving the knight piece and sits by himself in one of the MV scenes, J.Seph wants to come for B.M's king position.

Chess/Dice illustrating the battlefield, B.M wants to avoid conflict but J.Seph wants an exchange like two Chess grandmasters duking it out.

Fire and Water: J.Seph representing fire and B.M symbolizing water. These two opposite elements in conflict.

Envy: Depicts Jiwoo's colorful aspect and Somin's chic black aura, but Dream Teller flips it around as the two girls are a reflection of themselves, duality.

Clock/Mirror/Chandelier: presents the emotional state of each member with the shattering mirror. B.M wishes to turn back the hands of time.

Harmony (Unity). "Oh NaNa" features the end result of coming together while "Don't Recall" entails conflict.

Hidden/ One More Thing: Dream Teller mentions a possible 5th "hidden" member that you can't see. You heard whispers of "K" and "A", will "R" and "D" be next?

What are your thoughts on this detailed analysis and anyone else have this song on repeat?

Lynnbia RAS33 Friday, February 17, 2017

in the beginning of the song "oh nana" they say "it's K" and they start "don't recall " with A , so we're expecting the next song to begin with R ^^ actually i think Dream Teller knew before hand , they may even pay him for using his vid :x

RAS33 Lynnbia Friday, February 17, 2017

RimmieMeli Thursday, February 16, 2017

It makes sense

vteebby Thursday, February 16, 2017

ok DSP i need fan name for KARD. i need to know what i'm calling myself ok? got hooked on Oh Na Na and Don't Recall solidified me as a fan! what should i call myself, Deck?!

_bWRECKED vteebby Thursday, February 16, 2017

I've seen the term "wildkard" here and there. It's not official I think, but its something.

vteebby _bWRECKED Thursday, February 16, 2017

that honestly sounds better than Deck :'D

klitzy vteebby Friday, February 17, 2017

How about full house since this group has everything.

shizun vteebby Friday, February 17, 2017

I don't like Deck as it sounds a bit similar to Dick. Wildkard is the name for the hidden members. Some suggest Royal, but Royals are the fans of Roy Kim. I would suggest Knight/s. (from what I know it is not taken and works well as a fandom name)

Lynnbia vteebby Friday, February 17, 2017

There's WildCards and Players

I freaking wish that BTS had a breakdown on their theory as well cuz i really don't know what to believe.But Kard is amazing. Great explanation

_bWRECKED got7winnerlover Thursday, February 16, 2017

I'm praying for the day BigHit decides to tell the story behind the BTS MVs. TT^TT

vincentrob11 Thursday, February 16, 2017

That's some great explanation!

charlie_d Thursday, February 16, 2017

I find this new group so good! I love they have men and women together :DPlus, the videos are so good!

karebearsays Thursday, February 16, 2017

Bruhhhh, I freaking love Dreamteller, I'm so happy they got them to analyze and explain the video. They're so good at what they do. If you guys haven't already, you should check out their BTS (no this is not shameless BTS promoting, I'm not even an ARMY anymore) The Most Beautiful Moment in Life ( I need U, run, young forever, etc.) theories, they make the most sense, and are so powerful and sad in a way.
