The first teaser for "Life Goes On" was released on November 17th. It shows the members around a campsite until it transitions to them sitting on a couch watching TV. The second teaser was later released on November 18th, featuring black and white photos of the members with a sample melody from the song.


The music video was fully released on November 20th. It shows them in several situations: in a car driven by V, watching videos of themselves on a couch or performing in an empty stadium.

Another music video was the next day, on November 21st, tagged "on my pillow". It shows the seven members singing while on bed in a bedroom, all dressed in pyjamas. It was all filmed in one take.

On November 25th a third video was released, tagged "in the forest". This time the members are in a green environment, sitting on the ground or chairs, while singing.

A fourth music video was released on November 29th, titled "like an arrow". It shows a succession of black-and-white photos of themselves, some of them from behind the scenes.


Both the teasers and music videos were directed by member Jungkook.
