News24xx.com - Fans think the video is inspired by the 1872 gothic novella 'Carmilla' by Irish author Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, which many believe to be one of the first vampire fiction works.

Red Velvet's Irene and Seulgi have debuted as part of the group's first sub-unit with their mini-album 'Monster', which is accompanied by a sensual, sultry music video for the title track that has fans theorizing whether the duo is depicting a lesbian romance inspired by the 1872 gothic novella, 'Carmilla'.

Even before the video dropped, Red Velvet's fandom ReVeluv was tweeting up a storm based on teaser images that indicated the newly-formed sub-unit would be embracing a darker and more mature concept, much closer to the band's work on tracks like 'Bad Boy'. Following the official release of 'Monster', it appears these predictions were spot on, and fans are thrilled at how stunning the two members look in the cinematic music video.

Irene has long been known as the visual of Red Velvet. So it's not surprising that she's being hailed for her looks in this video as well. One fan tweeted, "Irene is the hottest, finest woman alive yes or yes?" while another declared, "THIS GIRL CAN'T BE REAL." But the idol's singing and dancing are also getting some well-deserved recognition this time around. "Irene's VOICE in this... WAAAAAAAAA," shared one fan, while another tweet read, "When we say Red Velvet is a group of vocalists, this is what we mean. Finally people realized Irene is a singer and not just a visual." Seulgi is widely known as one of the best dancers among K-pop girl groups, and in 'Monster' she shines as a dancer while also serving fans a big helping of some of her best looks to date. "KANG SEULGI U DROVE ME CRAZY ARGHHHH," tweeted one fan.
