Apparently, these are considered ‘B’ cuts for @star1’s recent photo shoot with BESTie’s Yuji.
I don’t know what makes these ‘B’ cuts except for the fact that @star1 couldn’t simply fill the rest of their magazine/server space with pictures of Yuji (I mean, they probably could and no one would complain).
As for the obvious flawlessness of the shoot that led to these two photos not making the first cut, a representative described the shoot in a perfectly understated manner:
A rep from the photo shoot said, “Despite the very hot weather, U.JI kept upping the atmosphere with her continuously bright energy. The results also came out very satisfactorily.”
Very satisfactorily indeed.
I suppose it’s difficult to give @star1 too much shit considering that they had to choose one photo and the one they went with ain’t bad either.
