The music video for "Boy In Luv" was released on February 11th, 2014. A 'Choreography Version' was later released on February 20th. Both were directed by Choi Yong Seok and Edie Ko from Lumpens. The Japanese version of the music video was released on July 4th.

The music video features the members as students, acting out various scenes that showed their interest in the female lead character (acted by Go So Hyun). It was choreographed by GRV Crew's David Lim.

On their 2014 variety show American Hustle Life, they recorded an L.A. version music video, directed and supervised by Warren G. This version is supposed to follow the guidelines of a typical American hip-hop music video.
