Hai Cheng is written based on The8’s emotions and how he felt, fans assumed the song was written for his mother and the music video is dedicated to her.
This MV could also represent his mom. (Since Hai Cheng is his hometown & where his mom gave birth to him.) His mom is his only lady & the dance part, he dances since his mom was a dancer. ㅠㅠㅠ— mi원우지💋 (@miwon17_) March 18, 2022
He incorporated dancing scenes in the music video, as he did mention before his mother loves to dance. The8 also posted a video of them dancing together once.

The8 also included his paintings in the music video as he loves art and uses it to express himself.
the painting that appeared in the hai cheng mv is one that minghao painted himself, and it’s the same one he previously said is his most memorable piece of work 🥺— 새벽 🍒 (@dawncheol) March 18, 2022
