K-pop group BOYNEXTDOOR, composed of Sungho, Riwoo, Jaehyun, Taesan, Leehan and Woonhak, will be returning to the music scene with the new mini-album “HOW?” on April 15. 

BOYNEXTDOOR announced their highly-anticipated comeback by unveiling an eye-catching teaser video today titled ‘HOW can this happen?’ on HYBE Labels Youtube channel and their official social media channels. 

The newly revealed teaser stimulates viewers’ imagination by capturing the members encountering an unnatural phenomenon.

Inside a dimly lit bedroom, the six members are each spending peaceful time on their own. Taesang disrupts the quiet when he sneezes and suddenly a bouquet of flowers blooms from his phone.

Startled, Taesan drops the phone on the floor as the other members gather around him, amazed to see the phone then shapeshift into a baseball, toy, and finally an alarm clock before it completely disappears. Just like the look of shock left on the sextet’s faces, having witnessed a surreal spectacle, curiosity and anticipation intensifies for ‘HOW?’ the new album will once again unfold the band’s relatable stories.
