Taylor Swift is the gift that always gives. In addition to the release of their ninth surprise studio album alwaysOn December 11th, Swift also dropped the music video for “Willow” and it will be recorded exactly where the music video “Cardigan” left off. In the video (which is filled with Easter eggs, of course), Swift follows a magical gold thread into her piano and follows a love interest for several years until the two finally end up together in their cozy cabin. Swift’s lover is played by Taeok Lee, and if he sounds familiar, there’s a good reason.

During a live YouTube chat before the “Willow” video was released, Swift told her viewers, “You’ve seen my co-star on this video before,” and that’s because Lee was one of Swift’s dancers during her time was red Tour in 2013. After the video premiered, Lee thanked Swift on Instagram for asking him to work together again. “Surprise guys! Thank you Tay for bringing me back for this project. It means a lot to me and it’s been great working together again. Now everyone’s going to buy and stream always! “he wrote. Shortly thereafter, the dancer posted another Instagram explaining how he met Swift.

“The 2012 AMAs with Tay were the first job I ever auditioned for,” he signed a series of photos of himself and Swift. “The next job I booked was Taylor’s red Trip. I don’t talk about it much now because it looks like a lifetime ago and I work in different fields now. but i think about it a lot. The people I met, the places we went, the shows we did. . . Thank you for closing the loop on me, Tay. I met my best friend because of you and when I was 19 I had the craziest adventure ever. So it’s wild to come back at 27 and see the wild tenacity and talent that you possess again and are reminded of the insanely talented and intelligent woman that you are. Thank you Tay. “

Swift loves to come full circle (and we love to see him).
