We’re back with a new Music Video Recommendation, this week I really wanted to write about this iconic ‘THANKS’ by SEVENTEEN video. 

‘THANKS’ was released in 2018 and was part of the special album ‘DIRECTOR’S CUT’. For me, everything fit so well together in this music video. The song itself is utterly fantastic and I could praise SEVENTEEN into the high heavens, but I’ve already done that here

This video is so brilliant. We get the ‘behind the scenes’ vibe and we see the hard work and dedication and hours of training it takes to be able to go on that stage to show their dear CARATs the best version of themselves. 

The lyrics still get me. 

“Thank you, thank you, that’s all I can say
Even all the waiting, the longing
And all of our memories
Thank you
Thank you
Because they’re such common words
I was worried it wouldn’t sound sincere
I was looking for something better than just thank you
So I couldn’t tell you thank you”


Go ahead and watch the music video (again).
