Filmed before the official release of the song, in the video, the Bangtan Boys are seen sitting together and reviewing the video before making the final edits. In the opening scene, they are caught surprised to see how the track connects back to the iconic pancake scene in their previous music video ‘Butter’.
To this, bandmate RM shares his excitement to see his bright colour in the video, while Junkook gets compared with the film ‘The Good, the bad, the Weird’. They also revealed that Jungkook had reached the two hours earlier to the film sets to shoot just one particular scene of the video.
Talking about non-celebrity people featured in ‘Permission To Dance’, J-Hope said in Korean, “This music video is meaningful because there were ordinary people featured in it’ and Jungkook added, “It’s a healing experience” as others happily agreed with the two while watching everyone dancing to their fullest.
Jimin and V further shared that the end credits scene included their entire crew members and staff who were involved with the project, such as their stylists, bodyguards, light man, managers and more.
Jimin said, “I think that this is our first music video that gives such a feeling of happiness. We’ve had music videos that were fun and interesting, but this makes you feel happy.” “We broke free of that prejudice that we don’t have other people appear in our music videos apart from ourselves” added RM.
