K-pop boy group TO1 released their third EP “Why Not??” today, led by the title track music video “Drummin.”
Aside from the title track, the EP lists four other songs: “Boom Pow,” “What A Beautiful Day,” “Sugar Shock” and “Butterflies.” Members Chan and J.You are credited with writing the rap lyrics for “Drummin.”
The new EP is a successor to their last music project, the seven-track album “Re:Alize” released in 2021 with the title track music video “No More X.”
This is also the group’s first comeback featuring a new lineup of members, as Renta, Daigo and Yeojeong join following the departure of members Minsu, Jerome and Woonggi last month. The current line-up of nine members includes Jaeyun, Donggeon, Chan, Jisu, J.You, Kyungho, Daigo, Renta and Yeojeong.
TO1 is under the label WakeOne, and was created through the idol competition show “World Klass.” They debuted in April 2020 with the mini-album “Reason for being: 仁 (Benevolence)” under their original group name TOO (Ten Oriented Orchestra).
