This latest release marks their third domestic drop of the year following their sophomore mini-album “Doublast,” which was released in June, and their debut EP  “First Impact,” which was released in January.
In August, Kep1er made their Japanese debut with the song “Wing Wing” and its music video. They also made their live U.S. debut at KCON LA 2022 that month and were joined by other superstar acts such as LOONA and WJSN.
Kep1er debuted as a nine-member group with Kim Chae-hyun, Huening Bahiyyih, Kim Da-yeon, Seo Young-eun, Kang Ye-seo, Hikaru Ezaki, Shen Xiaoting, current co-leader Mashiro Sakamoto and former CLC member and current co-leader Choi Yu-jin. The group is jointly managed by Wake One Entertainment and Swing Entertainment and was formed from the final lineup of the Mnet idol reality competition show “Girls Planet 999,” where K-pop veteran idols Sunmi and Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany Young served as mentors.
