"Youth," featuring members Yunho and Mingi, delves into themes of duality, self-discovery, and the raw emotions of young adulthood. The accompanying music video is a breathtaking visual masterpiece that amplifies the song's message, taking viewers on a journey through contrasting landscapes and captivating imagery.

ATEEZ members Yunho and Mingi standing sidebyside, looking determined, with the title Youth in a stylish font above them The video opens with Yunho and Mingi standing amidst a barren desert landscape, their stark figures dwarfed by the vastness of the sand dunes. This setting establishes the initial sense of isolation and introspection that permeates the song. As the first verse begins, the scene shifts to a vibrant underwater world, where the duo gracefully moves through a kaleidoscope of colorful coral reefs and mesmerizing aquatic creatures. This stark contrast between the desolate desert and the teeming ocean reflects the complex inner world of youth, where moments of loneliness and uncertainty are juxtaposed with bursts of intense emotions and a yearning for connection.

Throughout the video, Yunho and Mingi embody two distinct facets of youth. Yunho, with his fiery red hair and powerful dance moves, represents the passionate and rebellious side, while Mingi, clad in cool blue tones and exuding a more melancholic aura, embodies the introspective and vulnerable side. This duality is further emphasized through their contrasting outfits and hairstyles, highlighting the internal struggle between embracing wildness and seeking solace in introspection.

As the song progresses, the desert and underwater scenes begin to merge, blurring the lines between the two worlds. This symbolizes the fusion of these contrasting energies within the characters, a representation of how young adulthood often involves integrating different aspects of oneself to form a cohesive identity. The choreography further reinforces this message, with Yunho and Mingi mirroring each other's movements while also adding their own unique flair, showcasing their individuality within their shared journey.

The climax of the music video arrives with a breathtaking sunrise scene. Yunho and Mingi stand atop a sand dune, bathed in the golden light, as they raise their arms towards the sky. This powerful image signifies a newfound sense of hope and optimism, a realization that despite the challenges and uncertainties of youth, there is beauty and purpose to be found in embracing both the darkness and the light within.
