On the other hand, the music video for the duo’s lead single “B.A.D” was also released on the same day. Donghae and Eunhyuk rev up with a sharp and intense choreography in a funky, electric, and strong bass for the hip hop-heavy track. Lyrically, the song depicts a story of a man falling in love with a woman and following where your instinct takes you. “B.A.D” is a self-written song by member DONGHAE, and the Motown funk-style rhythm change is impressive.
The music video starts off with the duo looking tough and princely while riding black and white horses. It then and quickly progressed into quick dance sequences in different sets. The scene where the duo jumped off a skyscraper also added thrill and enjoyment to the music video.
On the other hand, Super Junior D&E held the SUPER JUNIOR-D&E BAD’ COUNTDOWN LIVE broadcast on Naver VLIVE SMTown Channel an hour before the album’s release. The duo had a Q&A using keywords extracted from their title track, “B.A.D”. Donghae and Eunhyuk also proceeded to unbox their 4th mini album, “BAD BLOOD” for the first time. PULP
