> NGT48 Recreate Scenes From A TV Appearance For Their Nakibeso Kakumade MV

> PassCode Sing From A Giant Tower In The MV For Tonight

PassCode are seriously making waves with their catchy music packed full of electronic beats and screaming vocals. But, what would happen if you put the group on a giant cat tower? You’d get the MV for Tonight, a mature take on the PassCode formula that’s well worth a look!

> =LOVE Blast Our Eyes With Colors In The Vibrant MV For Want you! Want you!

Sometimes, you just need to blast your eyes with all the colors in the visible spectrum of light. That’s where =LOVE come in with their latest MV packed full of color and sheer adorableness. It’s so cute. Seriously. Watch it.

Notable mentions


This week we have Purely Monster and their MV for Secret Story. Out November 21st, the song is the main track for their 3rd single.

If you survived the adorableness of =LOVE’s MV, then prepare for the latest MV from Purely Monster. It ups the intensity of cuteness to a whole new level.

In Secret Story, we get to listen to an upbeat song packed full of cute vocals. Words are unable to describe just how happy this song sounds, but the chorus packed full of Chu Chu I Love You Chu Chu does a pretty good job of summing it up.

Visually it’s equally as good, showing off scenes of one of the members as she writes a love story featuring all of the members. In each scene they get to do a cute sign of affection with a faceless guy, such as holding hands, getting touched in the hand, and more hand related cuteness.

It’s a relatively simple MV so don’t expect a deep story or amazing camera work. It’s just a fun and light release that is sure to please those who prefer idols who sing about love and sound happy. Plus, one of the members looks like Hello! Project’s Momochi so that’s something. Check it out below!
