Music Video

PV shot

The music video for "hands" was directed by Ippe Morita and produced by Sumitaka Fushimizu. It was choreographed by former backup dancer AKIKO.

The PV Kuu dealing with the sadness of a break-up and being alone, alongside the burden of a career in fame. She sees another version of herself in the mirror, who is able to be with the one she loves.

There are two versions of the PV, from the single's DVD and secret 's DVD; they are essentially the same, however, the album version omits certain scenes to focus on Kuu's isolation.
