I don't know if this was a good idea, K-Pop market is full of new debuts and comebacks every week, we have to wait so much for the full group debut.

I'm quite excited for this group. It's a unique approach for sure. The only song that I really loved was Heejin's song VIVID.

I really hope the next girl will come out with a rap song


EDIT:



So Haseul is the oldest one in LOONA. She's 19 years old. I'm assuming that YeoJin is the maknae then? Since she's only 14 years old.


EDIT II:

I find it weird how their YouTube videos all have English subtitles, I assumed this was because the name of their social media accounts are 'loonatheworld', but they only post in Korean on their official Facebook.

I came across this on their Facebook:



I've seen some talk about this in the comments on YouTube, some people seem to think it's a subunit.


EDIT III:



Also, I wonder when the February girl will be revealed.

[sorry for the double post. All that editing doesn't make it very organized either so...]

The February girl has been revealed through the official facebook. And the first is updated.



I do wonder if she's Korean though...

Apparently she used to be a model, you can view her model pictures here: https://twitter.com/vivianpics

so did I get this right, we get 12 girls in total, each gets a solo song and a song with the members from the month before and we now have 1/3 (4) of them who already made a sub-unit?

^Yes. Although ViVi (the girl with the pink hair) hasn't gotten her solo yet. Each month a new girl is revealed. ViVi was revealed in February, which led everyone to believe she would get her solo in February.

Instead she debuted in March with the sub-unit LOONA 1/3, alongside Heejin, HyunJin and HaSeul. ViVi still doesn't have a solo song/MV.

LOOΠΔ Plans To Make Official Debut In 2018

Rookie girl group LOOΠΔ gathered public interest for taking an unconventional approach to their debut.

Beginning last October, one member was revealed every month with a solo track for each of them. Five members have been unveiled as of now, and they are HeeJin, HyunJin, HaSeul, YeoJin, and ViVi. Of these five, HeeJin, HyunJin, HaSeul, and ViVi debuted as LOOΠΔ 1/3 and are currently promoting with “Love&Live.”

“The group as a whole is set to debut in 2018. LOOΠΔ is different from other girl groups. Like a puzzle, each member is added to the group to complete a bigger picture,” the members of LOOΠΔ explained.

The group will be made up of 12 members in total, and the members who have not been revealed are still training hard.

They expressed, “What sets us apart from others is that we don’t have a set image. We can have all sorts of new combinations. Our goal? It’s to become Korea’s best girl group!”

Meanwhile, last year, it was announced that LOOΠΔ was preparing for a complete debut around September 2017, but it appears to have been postponed.

I'm sad their debut has been postponed. I'm really looking forward to seeing them as a complete group.

For those who watch all the videos on LOONA's YouTube channel, there are some videos of the girls in Hong Kong and in some of those videos a blonde girl appears but her face is blurred out. I'm assuming that girl is JinSoul (the same girl from the picture above).

the approach is interesting but costly and in kpop if you don't sell but they have invested millions into you, they'll dump you and put a huge debt on you

Two new members of the group have been revealed.

First one is JinSoul. She was revealed through ViVi's 'Everyday I Need You' MV. JinSoul only has a short appearance.



JinSoul appears at 2:21

Another member was revealed today, and she is this month's girl.



Her name is KimLip.

I really find her name strange. "KimLip"? They couldn't come up with a better stage name?

Just as the albums of HeeJin to HyunJin, HaSeul, YeoJin, ViVi, and LOOΠΔ 1/3 did, LOOΠΔ continues to expand their ‘Loonaverse’ with the addition of their sixth member, Kim Lip.

As it is suggested by the officially released photos and the teaser video, Kim Lip’s album is produced in a different style from the previous LOOΠΔ releases, letting the audiences to take a glance at a new side of the Loonaverse. The title track, ‘Eclipse’ was produced by Daniel Obi Klein, the producer of E-Sens’ critically acclaimed album ‘Anecdote’. The supporting track ‘Twilight’ was written by Cha Cha Malone of AOMG, putting an exclamation point on Kim Lip’s splendid debut.
