After 9MUSES announced their first comeback in more than a year with a new formation of eight members, fans have been wondering what kind of concept they would go for. The first teaser picture only showed one of the members cutting her own hair, but a new set of pictures might be the hint of their new concept.
The first picture from the second group shows all eight members wearing pastel wigs, but you can’t see their faces and their clothes were barely visible.
Later, they released a set of individual photos in which you can completely see all the members. Check them out:
Although the girls already had a song called “Doll“, it’s their first time going for a doll concept. This is usually considered kind of aegyo concept for a girl-group like Nine Muses which is known for its sexy concepts. However, even as dolls, they are able to show a mature concept, especially by the way they stare at the camera.
The doll concept is also something rare in K-Pop in general. The only times I remember seeing it was in Laboum‘s “What About You” and in T-Ara‘s dance version of “Sexy Love“. Also, in Ladies Code‘s “Hate You“, although it was a darker version of the doll concept. Ok, we also had VIXX with “Voodoo Doll“, but that’s a different kind of doll.
Are you excited for Nine Muses comeback? Their mini-album “Drama” will be released on January 23rd, so stay tuned to Officially Kmusic to keep updated!
