In 2014, K-pop boy band GOT7 was still relatively new when they released its music video, A.
Six years later, fans, especially Malaysians, are watching the video with renewed interest after realising it was shot in Shah Alam.
In fact, a majority of the music video is anchored by scenes of the seven-man band dancing outside Holy Smoke Cafe at Seksyen 13, Shah Alam (although the cafe's signage is altered in the music video).
A behind-the-scenes footage of the music video saw GOT7 members wiping their sweat away under the scorching Malaysian weather in between takes.
There are also shots of the group busting their moves in front of a shop lot selling Malaysian dishes “mee hon sup, laksa, kueh teaw kerang”.
Another scene found the band members in a Malaysian supermarket aisle, with a variety of local products and Bahasa Malaysia-language signages prominently captured on the music video.
Malaysian fans, who previously overlooked the music video's setting, greeted the discovery with delight on Twitter.
Since the release of A – which has garnered over 113 million YouTube views to date – GOT7 has enjoyed immense success, becoming one of the most successful groups to come out of South Korea.
Its fourth full-length album, Breath Of Love: Last Piece, arrives Nov 30.
