Usage of the "Black Mirror" technic at LOONA's "Butterfly" MV surprises and rises praises for the inclusive message


LOONA made their first comeback with the album "X X" and released the MV for "Butterfly". The video encourages all the girls around the world to archive their dreams in a really inclusive, also respectful, cinematography narration.

What have been catching everybody's attention is the unique way to be inclusive at this music video due the usage of a "black mirror". Before the first chorus, a girl is running against a wall, when she hit it, a black screen appears for a long andquiet second. The usage of that black screen is known as "black mirror" which is a technic to include the viewers in the narration of the videos since the screen of the device will reflect their faces.

Block Berry Creative
claimed about the music video: "Under the slogan of ‘For All LOOΠΔs Around the World,’ it spread worldwide, to all LOOΠΔs of the world. LOOΠΔ causes a Butterfly effect through music for the listeners to gain courage, find oneself, and raise one’s voice. Anyone under influence, is another LOOΠΔ". 

Netizens were shocked at finding themself being part of the MV by that simple but clever technic. Some of them commented "The moment I realize how at 1:26 they give you a black mirror, I have chills", "It's nice to be included in the music video through the black screen", "Everything about this MV really spoke to me and has a beautiful message to incluide anyone". However, there are some people who have problems with their screens and commented "This is bad, I'm using a matte laptop screen, I guess I'm not a LOONA :( "

I had not even thought about that! I thought it was just a long cut. I did switch from my pc to my phone and rewatch the mv just to see myself as a LOONA
