The clip follows a young couple whose romantic relationship takes a turn for the worst when the woman discovers that her boyfriend has been stabbed. However, the man later miraculously recovers and they head to the beach to catch the sunset.
‘You Make Me’ is the lead single from Day6’s newest album ‘The Book Of Us: Negentropy’, which arrived on April 16. The album was teased through an “epilogue film”, which featured a spoken-word poetry narrated in English by member Jae.
“Pages of emotion come together / Upon waves curling and stretching out / We recall the warmth of our past days,” he says at the beginning of the clip.
A Korean version of the video was also released, featuring narration by fellow member Young K.
Day6 announced ‘The Book Of Us: Negentropy’ earlier in March. Their new project marks their first release as a full group since last year’s mini-album, ‘The Book Of Us: The Demon’.
Jae and Sungin had taken time off from the group following the release of ‘The Demon’ in order to focus on their health and mental well-being. The remaining three members of Day6 – Young K, Wonpil and Dowoon – subsequently formed the sub-unit Even Of Day and released the mini-album ‘The Book Of Us: Gluon’ in August of that year.

In 2019, the band kicked off their ‘The Book Of Us’ series with the ‘Gravity’ mini-album. In a glowing four-star review, NME’s Rhian Daly called the project a “glimmering roar” that leaves listeners with “a palpable feeling of hope”.
Their album ‘The Book Of Us: The Demon’ was also named by NME as one of the best Asian albums released in 2020. The list also featured records from acts like Park Hye-Jin, Sunset Rollercoaster and BTS.
