MNL48 Yzabel shares her experience;

“It was really fun! I had a fever days before the shoot and wasn’t sure if I could join but luckily, I was able to.
My favorite moment would be during group shots, specifically yung scene na tumatakbo kami kay ate Jem. Ilang beses kami nag shoot nun at muntikan madapa, yung mga tawa namin dun di ko makakalimutan."

MNL48 Yzabel message to the fans,

“MNLoves finally the long wait is over, please continue to hype STNS up~! Since STNS is out there, you know what’s coming next right? 7th Single here we come wihu~! ”

MNl48 Dana expresses her thoughts;

“It was a great experience doing the video because we only have limited time and resources to produce it. I’m proud to say that it’s a result of pure hard work with heart and collaboration from our group and MNL48 staff.

I want to thank all my fans, my family, and friends who were always there since I started my journey in MNL48. My success will not be possible without all your support, especially when I’m facing life’s challenges and lowest moments. Thank you for continuously believing in me and my dreams to be a successful MNL48 idol and most especially to our loving God, for all His guidance, strength, and wisdom. Thank you for all the blessings You’re giving me each and every day. Marami pong salamat!”

Of course, MNL48 Jem also shares her thought and experiences;

“Sobrang saya. totoo lang lahat. Sobrang daming unfiltered moments na first time ko lang makita kahit ang tagal na namin magkakasama. As center of this song sobrang proud akong makasama ang STNS senbatsu. Sobrang proud ako sa kanila! Kasi sinamahan nila ako sa pag hihintay ng song na ito! Hindi rin sila bumitaw. Kung hindi din dahil sa kanila hindi magiging possible ang docu video ng STNS. All in all, STNS is another dream come true para sa akin

Favorite moment ko yung nag shoot kami sa Groove Studio, kasi sobra yung struggle namin that time para makakuha ng tamang angle and shots. Doon lumabas yung pagging resourceful namin para humanap ng substitute sa mga equipments na wala kami. Yung iyak ko doon totoo! Hinugot ko yun sa mga kasama ko that time, kasi sobrang feel ko yung kagustuhan nilang maging successful itong docu na ito. Ramdam ko talaga yung love nila sa grupo”

Message to her fans;

“Paulit ulit, pero di ako magsasawang mag thank you! Ang dami nyo na din efforts and sakripisyo para sa grupo. Wag nyo sana isipin na hindi namin na aappreciate yun. Hindi man namin palaging na babanggit yun sa mga lives namin o napopost sa socmeds namin, pero gabi gabi lagi akong nag tthank you kay Lord kasi binigyan kami ng pangalawang pamilya na katulad nyo. Kapit lang! Medyo malubak ang daan na dinadaanan natin pero kapit lang! para walang mahulog, walang maiwan."

Despite the struggles of the pandemic, the STNS documentary was made up of all the efforts, support and courage of the members as well as the staff with limited time, budget and resources. It has really been a difficult year for everyone but the Sulong Senbatsu pushed through and observed the safety protocols. They are all grateful to the fans and their unending support and love to the group.
