Loona’s world tour announcement follows news of a reported comeback sometime in June.

Loona debuted on August 19, 2018, with the title track “Hi High.” Previously, all 12 members launched solo projects in anticipation of the group’s full debut. The group consists of leader Haseul, Heejin, Hyeju, Kim Lip, Hyunjin, JinSoul, Yves, Yeojin, Choerry, Chuu, Vivi and Gowon.
