“Light” is a dance pop song, with a retro groove to it. It combines the sounds of intense synths with a funky electric guitar, making for quite a unique sound.

Drawing from the title of the song, the concept unsurprisingly is related to light, however, the idea of the members’ being “Light Hunters” in search of a lost light is a very interesting concept. This is shown very well through their lyrics which is about the members chasing after each other’s light, thus inadvertently, illuminating each other (which could be a metaphor of finding one’s true self). The lyrics say,
“Open your closed heart,
So that you can slowly feel all of me.
Get your locked heart out,
So that I can become the light embracing you./
Well, you know it well,
I’ll run to the bright light./
Shine on my heart as it is
The way it is now, it’s alright…”Light – UP10TION
The members powerful and passionate vocals and the fast-paced raps are able to deliver the meaning of the song well.
The music video for the song is very aesthetically pleasing with its use of various colours, with the seven members representing the seven colours present in light when split through a prism. In fact, the imagery of the prism is very evident in the video, as it probably shows the uniting of all the members to find the ‘lost light’. We also get to see the intense as well as sexy choreography being performed by the members in the video.
