Chinese actress Tang Wei will star in a music video for the singer-songwriter and actress IU’s upcoming album.
Tang will appear in the music video of the side B track, “Shh…” in IU’s sixth mini album, “The Winning,” according to Edam Entertainment.
In the teaser for the music video, released on YouTube Tuesday, Tang Wei appears inside a car leaning her face against the steering wheel and gazing out the window.
The screen then turns black and white, and IU and Tang appear together inside a house with IU opening a door to a secret space underneath the wooden floor.
The phrase “There was a song” pops up on the screen before IU ends the teaser by looking at the camera.
This is Tang's first time starring in a music video.
“The reason why I took up this project is simple. It’s because I like IU. I love her talent, personality and her music. This is my first time starring in a music video. It was a pleasure to work with IU and I learned a lot on the scene,” said Tang in a press release.
“IU plays the role of my mother and a friend. Our relationship in the music video was really interesting,” said Tang.
IU collaborated with Hyein of NewJeans and Joe Won-sun of Rollercoaster for the track “Shh….”
The track also has a special narration by an as-of-yet undisclosed figure.
IU’s sixth EP will be released Feb. 20, and the music video for “Shh...” will be released Feb. 23.
