It's all in the numbers!

You've watched the music videos on repeat, but have you spotted the hidden significant dates and numbers? Blink and you'll miss these!

Note: In South Korea, dates are generally written in the order year/month/day. 

1. Seohyun: Don't Say No

Did you notice the license plate of the pink car featured in the music video? It had GG for Girls' Generation and 0628 for Seohyun's birthday, which is June 28!

2. Monsta X: Beautiful

Minhyuk's watch showed the time as 5:14. It's no coincidence as Monsta X's debut music video for "Trespass" was released on May 14!


Watch Minhyuk's shock as he realises the significance of the watch's time in the behind-the-scenes making video.

3. BTS: Prologue

In October 2015, BTS released their "Prologue" music video. In one of the scenes, you can see the number "0516" in the background. It was a subtle hint to the timing of their future promotions as May 2016 is when they dropped their comeback tracks "Fire," "Save Me" and "Butterfly." Mindblown.


4. AOA: Excuse Me

In the top left corner of the document file that the girls' are studying, there are the numbers "12-0730". Did you know the music video for AOA's debut title track, "Elvis," was released in 2012, on July 30?


There is also a scene showing the words "1 the K station, 18:00PM". The actual music video for "Excuse Me" was uploaded to the 1theK YouTube channel at 6pm KST. It's all connected!


5. Girls' Generation: Lion Heart

Yoona is seen holding a train ticket that has the date "08/05" and time "8:05PM". The other members are also seen with objects that all have the same numbers. Guess what?! Girls Generation debuted on August 5!

The "1719" also combines the "Lion Heart" music video release date (August 17) and the Lion Heart studio album release date (August 19). Smart!

6. EXO: Ko Ko Bop

In EXO's music video for 'Ko Ko Bop,' the car license plates have "L-1485" written. The official name of EXO's fanclub, EXO-L, was announced on August 5, 2014.


7. Red Velvet: Automatic

Another license plate easter egg is in Red Velvet's "Automatic" MV. The group debuted on, you guessed it, August 1, 2014.
