ENHYPEN's Border: Day One Album Teasers
On Oct. 21, the group dropped the first teaser for Border: Day One. Fans were left shook over the concept, which teased a dark aesthetic. The clip featured black and red hues and a dramatic narration about ENHYPEN's innermost desires:
We were desperate in our desire to transform. We believed that there lay dreams unknown because every path is stained with tears. We keep our fist fiercely clenched, not knowing it to be a blessing or a curse, lest we lose what we hold in our hands. Blood-red moonlight blazes and unquenchable thirst flairs with fury. The others look up to us in veneration and we look upon them with envy. Why do we desire what we cannot acquire? Why must we walk along an endless line? At dawn, the sun rises to menace and bless our fleshly selves.
Due to the dark imagery, fans got a feeling ENHYPEN would be exploring a vampire concept. Check out the debut trailer below.
Fans' suspicions only increased when ENHYPEN unveiled the second trailer. The clip showed the members wandering around a forest, and in one scene, JAKE even wanted to bite JUNGWON on the neck. Fans think this transformation could symbolize ENHYPEN's transition from trainees to idols.
To coincide with the videos, ENHYPEN shared "dusk" and "dawn" teaser photos, which also gave off major vampire vibes.
