Aimyon | Comment
“I told my staff a long time ago that I wanted to make a music video of this song one day, but there wasn’t an opportunity and the days and months just began to build up. I never thought we’d pick up this song again in this way. My prayers were answered and we made a music video. We have that summer breeze and feeling of youthfulness on board. It’s an exciting video, so I hope people enjoy it together with the song.”
Pennacky (Director) | Comment
“It’s an honour to be the director of this famous song by Aimyon. I hope people who know about the song already, as well as those who have yet to hear it, will enjoy it.”
