OMONA'S PICK: MV Producers/Directors Part 3: Lumpens 🎥

Omo! It's time for another installment of "OP is obsessed with finding out who makes what MV for no real reason at all". I like this next group because they always produce beautiful, high quality MVs. The color palettes are well chosen, and there's always something new to discover with every re-watch. Without further ado, here's another one of my favorite MV Producers/Production Houses:

Lumpens is a Seoul based video production house that started in 2014. Possibly best known for being BTS's go to prod company, having worked on 9 of their MVs. They also worked with other groups like Wonder Girls, SISTAR, Block B, and SPICA.

Some notable elements repeated in their work:
- rich colors (sometimes muted)
- art film teas
- explosions / things breaking / falling
- slow close-ups on deadpan faces
- steady camera work that allows the choreography to really shine

Watch some of their MVs below and let me know in the comments if you notice any other similarities in their work

🎥 Part 1: VM Project Architecture
🎥 Part 2: Naive Creative Studio

I just realized that the girl groups they worked with have disbanded... what a sad coincidence. Which of their MVs are your faves, Omona?

Also, I thought I'd be able to churn these posts out monthly.. I overestimated my motivation. lol

On September 4, Yebin and Somyi took to the group’s official Instagram to announce the news themselves.

Yebin and Somyi then expressed their worry at fans being too surprised by the news and explained that they wanted to grow more and get evaluated through the program.

“We are so thankful to our members for believing in and loving us, and more than anything, as DIA is so precious to us, we will work even harder.
