Luciana Jury | The release for BE:FIRST’s first love song, ‘Smile Again‘ is now available on all major digital streaming platforms.
With every music video that BE:FIRST has released, there is always a hidden message linking to the previous music video. This time round, there are scenes of members JUNON and SHUNTO at the airport which is said to be a continuation of the story from the last scene of the music video for ‘Message’ that was included in the group’s 1st album “BE:1.” The music video features members of BE:FIRST in a drama-like scene of unspoken stories, and relentless yearning in search for something that is close to their hearts.
