Watch That lightsaber pop song you’ve never heard about on YouTube

“Lightsaber” was originally released as a single in late 2015 as an official promotional song for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The song itself doesn’t related to the movie, but rather uses ‘lightsaber’ in more of a symbolic or metaphoric way. The EXO music video depicts several band members carrying lightsaber hilts and features a sign by a bar that reads “Jedi Only”. Although the music video hints at Star Wars, the video is set in various locations around South Korea rather than on a Star Wars planet.

  1. Was just wondering. Do you by any chance know the name of that lightsaber the guy with the red hair is using? I’ve been looking everywhere for it

    1. Great question! Unfortunately, I’m not sure. It’s possible it’s a custom saber made specifically for the music video. That’s just a guess, though.
