I've noticed that in most promo photos the girls don't smile. All the pics in the Best of SCANDAL CD have them with no smiles. They are always smiling in PVs and on stage and the Gallery is filled with candid pics of them smiling. They must be directed to look serious. Which really doesn't make sense for The Best of SCANDAL CD because that's a circus theme. It just seem out of character.

They tend to do anything they want, especially Tomomi.

But I'll agree with you, on the "official" pictures, they look pretty serious!

Most artists wanna look cool in their official pictures.

They do smile a lot on their blog pictures!

It's suppose to enhance the so called "attitude" of the artist if they don't smile. Or maybe personal reasons. Take YUI for example, I've read somewhere that she doesn't smile because her face looks chubby when she does. But that would make her lovelier LOVE

It just doesn't seem like their personalities. We've seen so much of them in interviews and I love their attitude. Esp. Rina. When she speaks she's always excited and happy. But like nekomimi-chan said, they're still gorgeous. Even if they're covered in mud I'd still love them! SCANDAL in mud........Hmmmmm..................

Heso...!!!

gurarararara!!!can YUH imagine SHUNKAN official pics with lot of smile??I think it isn't suitable with the outfit...costume, themes, etc...and if we look at the PV too..no smile too...gurararara!!!

in BEST SCANDAL...I can find their smile in some parts on the boolet...XXDDD

so I think "no smile" just a part of packaging to make SCANDAL looks perfect...gurarararara!!!

Heso...!!!

It's maybe Japanese "business" thing. They have to do company stuff exactly as permitted. But blogs and the like they do what they want and their real character shines through Happy Which is why we love them.

Most if not all, bands dont smile on official photos to show off the "attitude", well, konohagure-sama stated that already.. to look cool which gives a real impact. Other pictures would of course be different.

Now,what would be strange is if they dont smile while taking photos with fans. or taking their own photos.. that would be like WTF!

Bands tend to make themselves look cool in official photos rather than look cute.

It has to do a lot with the meaning of the single and the cover, an example that comes to mind is Panic at the disco! 9 in the afternoon. The theme is very carnival-ish and if they had a single cover with their picture in it they maybe not look so serious.

This plus whats been said in the thread.

Either way they still seem to be enjoying themselves and I feel that that is the most important point.
