UP10TION has made their long-awaited and much-anticipated comeback as a 10-member group!
They have dropped their first full-length studio album ‘Invitation‘ along with the title track ‘Candyland‘ an the accompanying music video.
This comeback marks the return of member Wooshin to the group. He had been on hiatus from the group’s activities since June 2017 with health concerns.
‘Candyland‘ is a retro pop-funk track that was produced by Shin Hyuk who has worked with the group previously on their releases, ‘So Dangerous‘ and ‘Attention‘. The track was written for them by the Jam Factory team.
The song starts out with a strong hip-hop beat that is given more weight with the addition of some brass elements. It’s refreshing and leads nicely into the outright funk elements of the track. The chorus is catchy and the rhythmic return to the chorus will keep you grooving to the tune.
The vocal of the track is attacked by all the members giving us a cool combination of force and charisma that reinforces the freshness of the track.
Let’s not forget the choreography that goes with the clip! As we’ve come to expect from UP10TION, it’s next level and will have all the imitators dropping dance covers in no time.

Then, just hours after dropping their album ‘Invitation‘ and the title track ‘Candyland‘, the group dropped a special clip for ‘Candyland‘ on us!
It’s just the cutest thing and is full of the members showing off the overflowing levels of charisma with lots of aegyo. The ‘Special Clip‘ is as sweet as the song itself!
