1. Black and White Filter:

The song starts off with strong bass beats and a black and white filter. Jungkook, the team's lead vocalist, opens the video with the lyrics, 'Smooth like Butter, like a criminal undercover'. The reference to the criminal in the lyrics is depicted in the video with members holding their name cards and standing against a wall with a height scale on it. This is similar to the walls which are used for measuring the heights of the criminals.

Also, the cards have the date of birth, name, and a 6-digit-number on them. These numbers are representing the IDs of the members just like the criminals have their IDs. However, this 6-digit ID has significance in it.

All the members planned these numbers based on the dates of special events in their lives. V, the band's singer has a 000001 written on the card which means victory or being number one. Similarly, Jungkook's ID number is the date he arrived Seoul while Jimin has the date of BTS' first concert as his ID. Both of these dates are extremely important for the members as they were the turning points in their lives. J-Hope also added his twist to it by having his pager number as the ID and RM's ID is his apartment number.
Seems like BTS loves to add secret meanings to their songs and videos!

2. Floor Number:

Right after that, he can be seen sitting in the baseball court with the members while Jin sings in the front. So the baseball court is on the A floor of the building.

But what is the significance of A? It means the ARMY, BTS' beloved fandom. So it is showing that V is going to the ARMY.
