M.I.B Gets Their Memories Erased by the Men in Black

Who is the real M.I.B? That is the question asked in the humorous teaser the K-Pop group M.I.B. shared through the official CJ E&M YouTube channel.

In the video the group M.I.B meet a trio of mysterious men in black suits at an underground garage. Both sides accuse each other of being the fake Men in Black, with M.I.B even mock cursing.

The teaser is for their upcoming single, “Men in Black,” which will be released on August 1. The hip hop group will also have their comeback performance on “M!Countdown” the same day. On August 11 the group will hold a solo concert.

Infinite’s “Destiny”, Mnet’s M!Countdown, 25th July 2013
