- The album includes six total tracks, with the majority including “Scream” being penned by members Zuho and Hwiyoung while “Butterfly” was solo scribed by Hwiyoung.
- SF9 debuted in October 2016 under FNC Entertainment with members Youngbin, Inseong, Jaeyoon, Dawon, Zuho, Rowoon, Yoo Taeyang, Hwiyoung and Chani.

Here’s something to “Scream” about: K-pop boy group SF9 dropped their 11th mini album “The Wave Of9” on Wednesday.
The mini-album, led by title track “Scream,” includes five other tracks: “Ok Ok,” “Summertime Bounce (Don’t Kill My Vibe),” “Driver,” “Crazy, Crazy Love” and “Butterfly.” This is the group’s first domestic drop of the year following their November 2021 mini-album “Rumination” and music video “Trauma.” Members Zuho and Hwiyoung scribed the lyrics to “Scream” and worked on a majority of the other tracks while Hwiyoung worked solo on “Butterfly.”
Called SF9, the group aptly debuted in 2016 with nine members under FNC Entertainment: Youngbin, Inseong, Jaeyoon, Dawon, Zuho, Rowoon, Yoo Taeyang, Hwiyoung and Chani. They’re preparing to celebrate their sixth anniversary in October.
For “The Wave Of9” comeback, the group’s nine temporarily gets flipped upside down to a six as members Inseong, Youngbin and Rowoon are not present for promotions. Inseong and Youngbin are fulfilling their mandatory military service while Rowoon, who was not involved with the album’s production, is currently working on a tightly scheduled drama project per an announcement from FNC Entertainment last month.
During a press conference for the album in Seoul, member Jayoon said, “We went from nine members to six this time, which means the share of responsibility got much bigger for each of us.”
Hwiyoung adds, “Since this is our first time as a team of six, each member had a whole lot more to do, we put extra effort into this EP, and I’m honored to have a self-written song on it.”
