HYBE girl group LE SSERAFIM made their first comeback on Monday with their new mini-album “ANTIFRAGILE.”
During a recent media showcase for the comeback, LE SSERAFIM leader Kim Chae-won shared, “The word ‘antifragile’ means an attitude which accepts adversity as a stimulus for growth, our resolve is to become hardened and stronger, even as we go through hardships and shocks.”
The mini-album’s title track of the same name is an “Afro-Latin-inspired track,” according to NME. “ANTIFRAGILE” also includes four other tracks: “The Hydra,” which was featured in the trailer for the mini-album’s release, “Impurities” and “No Celestial” and “Good Parts (when the quality is bad but i am).”
“Impurities” and “No Celestial” were co-written by member Huh Yun-jin, while “Good Parts (when the quality is bad but i am)” was penned by Huh and fellow group member Sakura Miyawaki with American singer-songwriter Salem Illese. Kim, Huh and Illese unveiled the track earlier this month during a live performance.

Back in August, Huh received songwriting credit following the release of her self-produced song “Raise y_our glass.”
“ANTIFRAGILE” is a follow-up to LE SSERAFIM’S debut album “FEARLESS,” which was released in May.
This is the group’s first music release as five members since the official departure of former member Kim Ga-ram over bullying allegations in July.
