This music video came as a total surprise to fans in that there was no announcement for this release. On March 5 KST, Big Hit dropped the “Black Swan” music video on YouTube, shocking fans. This video is currently at 14M views the time this is written.
Fans believe that even this surprise release of the music video was planned due to the ‘black swan theory’. This theory describes an event that comes as a surprise and has a major effect. This just proves that we should never count on Big Hit’s schedule because they’re always going to get us like this.
So this is the reason #BlackSwan MV was released out of nowhere coz thr is a whole theory of Black Swan event it is a metaphor that describes the event that comes as a massive surprise!!! … Wowww just wow bighit pic.twitter.com/a4jz1FauTD
