Dramatic with just the right visuals. Emotional and inspiring, Tomorrow X Together‘s 0X1=LOVESONG reminds me of younger years when being angsty is normal and even expected.
0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) (feat. Seori) is the second and title track of the album The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE by the South Korean boy group Tomorrow X Together . It was released on May 31, 2021.
As of this review, the music video on YouTube has garnered 78.9 million views.
That scene: Yeonjun dancing in bed after the problematic familial relationship hits me in the gut. I know this is to be expected given the hints of the MV’s theme. Yet I was not fully prepared. However, the opening statement is sort of a ‘prepare yourself‘ note on TXT’s part. It sets the mood for the entire MV.
The use of fish and water as a visual treatment can be interpreted in many ways – depending on the personal views of the audience. I think that’s cool. We are talking here of youthful existence in this rather chaotic world – where nothing is permanent and almost everyone is indispensable.

Favorite line: Please use me as a drug (I know I love you).
This is arguably their best video to date.
Visuals (2): Evokes emotions, sensuality, youthfulness, angsty, and fresh vibes;
Groove factor (3): Repeatability factor (very high level), can be danceable, and tune-able. Technically competent, with positive and inspiring grooves.
