One fan noted, "Seulgi chasing her dreams," to an update that reads, "Yunho was highly involved in the planning and production of this album, which took a year, so he must have personally chosen Seulgi for the project too. Seulgi has dreamed of working with her SMTOWN seniors since she was a child and we're excited for every opportunity she gets!"

As pointed out by one of the above fans, U-Know's latest music video recently released the music video for 'Thank U'. The EP 'Noir' features a lot of cinematic aesthetics, and it will be exciting if the visual for 'Eeny Meeny' connects to the story of 'Thank U'.
