SuperM’s new single ‘Tiger Inside’ is finally out, if you wiped your memory clean after its brief leak yesterday (31/8).
The supergroup’s music video was slated to premiere today (1/9) at 11AM (TH/ID Standard Time) / 12AM (PH/SG/MY Standard Time) to pave the road for their upcoming full-length album, Super One. However, the video was unintentionally released by SM Entertainment themselves after it wasn’t saved as ‘private’, and lucky fans got to have a peep of it before the staff caught on to their accidental leak.

Fans of EXO, SHINee, NCT, and WayV came together on Twitter to share their amusing experiences. Some detailed watching it, only to be cut off halfway as it’s abruptly set to private by the company.

aight so.... SM premiered the ‘Tiger Inside’ MV and I watched it but it disconnected for a bit then I refresh to find out the video is now private :) (the footage I recorded for some reason) pic.twitter.com/4fpvKqGyTB— ig:bbytaeyong.ie ₁₂₇ (@bbytaeyongi) August 31, 2020
Others attributed the mistake to the fictional (or not) “SM intern”, who has been an ongoing gag with a slight history of dropping WayV’s ‘Turn Back Time’ late. Some even encouraged the intern to leak other projects around the corner, or other possible content fans couldn’t get their hands on.
The funniest thing about SM releasing the Tiger Inside MV early is that they delayed WayV's Turn Back Time MV 💀— Kali (@kalilaea) August 31, 2020
that sm intern that leaked the tiger inside mv.. aha Don’t be shy leak lucas’s solo album too ❤️— ًwas @xuxihrt (@ltyszn) August 31, 2020
Most interestingly, though, are those who theorised that it’s a trick by SM to promote the music video – although when you think about it, this isn’t the first nor second time a blunder like this has occurred.

But whether it's against your values to watch something that isn't officially released, you can now, since the video has been publicised for viewing.
As the follow-up to single ‘100’, ‘Tiger Inside’ features the same intensity and energy that matches their dynamic and impeccable choreography.
