On January 1, 2012 a video teaser for MBLAQ's fourth extended play
album was released, including their secondary single, “낙서
(Scribble)”. Strangely however the captions on screen were not of
the song's lyrics. In the teaser video,
Lee Joon is wrestling with
Thunder for a woman, and ultimately points his gun to kill. The video
was perceived to be very different from previous
MBLAQ videos, as this
was the first time the group had produced a full-story music video
that incorporated acting and action sequences. The captions were later
revealed, in the second music video teaser, to be for their lead
single "전쟁이야 (This is War)".
On January 5,
MBLAQ released their teaser of “This is War” on
YouTube channel, J.Tune Camp. The video reveals the 5
members in their ensemble scene, and some small snippets of the full
music video. The teaser ends with the members standing center stage
with a string orchestra gathered on either side of them, shooting at
the audience and finishes with a violent blood splatter that reveals
their lead single's name, "전쟁이야 (This is War)". On the same
day, the first concept photo was also released by J.Tune Camp. The
directors jokingly stated that there was a particular member, Mir, who
wanted to shave his hair bald, however they took fans' opinions into
consideration and only let the member go as far as a mohawk.
J. Tune Entertainment announced that MBLAQ's fourth mini-album was
100% Ver. because " is an expression of MBLAQ's satisfaction
and confidence in the album's quality". It has been valuably noted
MBLAQ has expended much effort in the making the album.
Not much has been said by the members about their secondary single,
“낙서 (Scribble)”. The group members only said, “You will be
able to know about this song by listening to it rather than by us
explaining about it”. “Scribble” was released on music portal
websites on January 3, 2012. When "Scribble" was released, it reached
number one on Soribada and Bugs Music, number three on Mnet's Music
chart, and number four on Cyworld Music. "Scribble" was also promoted
along with their lead single, "전쟁이야 (This is War)", multiple
times on stage as their second single from their
The full music video of "전쟁이야 (This is War)" was released
four days later, on January 10, 2012.

the recurring lead image of
MBLAQ in the music video as a deadly but
warm-hearted assassin. Thunder also appeared as a lead actor in the
music video as the assassin's closest friend. Both members'
performance in acting, in particular
Lee Joon 's were positively
reviewed by fans and internet browsers alike.
100% Ver. was released on the same day as the music video, containing
a total of five songs: "Run", "전쟁이야 (This is War)", “낙서
