Red Velvet's Irene and Seulgi continue to stun with their latest release, the music video for their track 'Naughty' off their mini-album 'Monster'. They previously dropped a video for the gritty, haunting title track which saw the duo take on a vampire/demon concept with alleged lesbian undertones. The mini-album has been described as a generally darker, more sultry sound than what Red Velvet fans might be used to, and their latest offering, 'Naughty' appears to be the perfect culmination of all these elements: sultry vocals, a hard-hitting track, and classy looks all combining perfectly.

The group's fandom, ReVeluv, are already in love with the video, with many fans stating, "ASeul setting the bar up in the sky with this subunit," as well as, "No one is doing it like ASeul." The song itself has already earned 'Song of the Year' predictions, with several commenting on it being a quality track and one fan stating, "This is just ASMR, don't fight me," and another sharing, "OMG this song is masterpiece, art!!! Addicted! Thank you Red Velvet, I can hear and know various music genres. Because of your music, talents, and others, I know KPOP. Your music is not monotonous."

Speaking about the duo's performance in the music video, another fan shared, "Hey, Queens! You have done it again, constantly raising the bar for us all and doing it flawlessly. I’d say I’m surprised but I know who you are. I’ve seen it up close and personal. Girls, you make me so proud, and I love you." One fan stated, "This choreo is literally insane," another tweet read, "But seulrene are the real meaning of main dancer and lead dancer... Y'all take notes and learn," and one fan shared, "THE TUTTING IS ABSOLUTELY WILDDDDDDD." Soon, #LetsGetNaughty was trending across Twitter as more fans jumped on to share just how much they loved the video.

ReVeluv's couldn't help but get emotional seeing the duo's video since it also coincides with news of fellow member Wendy's recovery after she suffered a fall last year that resulted in several serious injuries and a temporary hiatus. One fan shared, "This is was a very wholesome morning. Wendy recovery update, Wendy on lysn, Red Velvet interview, Seulgi and Irene on yerihanbang. I suddenly feel alive again," while another stated, "I'm not lying that I'm so emotional today." Fellow member Yeri also posting a simmering selfie in a red dress, and one fan quipped, "HOW DOES YERI HAVE THE AUDACITY TO POST THIS WHEN WE ARE ALL FREAKING OUT OVER NAUGHTY. LET ME LIVE."

Of course, the 'Naughty' music video was not without criticism, owing mainly to a small editing error that at one point causes the two girls' feet to seemingly disappear into the ground. Sharing screengrabs of the moment in question, one fan asked, "SM WTH IS THIS???" while others couldn't get past the initial amusement, tweeting several versions of "HAHAHA." For the most part, it appears to have become a ReVeluv meme, however, with one fan sharing, "They're so good they snatched their own feet." Jokes aside, the music video ends with Irene and Seulgi parting ways, which, along with the title including 'Episode 1' in it, has fans speculating whether this indicates 'Episode 2' and 'Episode 3' will be a solo each from Irene and Seulgi.
