On the one hand, this will probably not end up being anything actually creepy or remarkable because it’s SM Entertainment and they love to lie with their teasers. A lot.
I mean, the group teased the incredibly safe and by-the-books “Electric Shock” with this big ball of creepy.
So, it’s not like there isn’t precedence for f(x) taking a really compelling image and then squandering it away under a wave of dance-in-the-box direction and neon lights.
Still, there’s no doubt that this image of Krystal looking like some emo Catholic meth-addled zombie (seriously, that pencil is pretty much a needle). You have my attention SM Entertainment. Well played.
According to SM Entertainment on the 27th, f(x) will make a comeback with their 3rd full-length album ‘Red Light‘ on July 7! This will mark their comeback in a year since their 2nd album ‘Pink Tape‘.
Of course, now I can’t help but see this teaser and think “Red Light district”.
