I said I will always be with you but it was a lie, a lie. – written above KIM DONGHYUK on the poster. It conveys the feelings of a man who is being hard on himself for leaving his lover.
JUNG CHANWOO looks much more mature with a new short haircut in his poster. His poster features the lyrics of “APOLOGY” that goes “The last missed call from you is on my phone, which I left facing down”. This expresses the painful feelings of a man who is trying very hard to avoid his lover.
BOBBY, who has always been so mischievous and energetic, looks forlorn in the teaser poster. The lyrics on his poster goes, “I hope the times we had spent together are as short and beautiful as the sunset.”
