Concept

The labels announced that the album will serve as a mysterious concept for the album. The year 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of their sub-unit debut. In the concept images that were released ahead of the album release, both members of the group were captured in front of a background that resembled flowing water. In the other set of images, both of them stood in front of white curtains and shadows of some birds could be seen. While talking about the teaser photos, SM Entertainment explains that Donghae’s space of “pouring light and flowing water” comes together with Eunhyuk’s space of “pouring sunset and flowing wind.”
