On April 5th, boy group ASTRO returned with their 2nd full album, ‘All Yours’. They also released the music video for its associated title track, ‘One’. Check it out down below!
The electronic dance track describes the group’s confidence in always being together with their fans, no matter where they are, always being able to now share precious moments and into the future. With a full rap breakdown serving the second verse and a dark sharp dance break before the final refrain, the song marks further change in the sextet’s sound. Formerly known for their bright poppy concepts, they started their sonic transition since their 1st full album, ‘All Light’ released in 2019. Returning with progressively mature and hard hitting concepts with tunes like ‘All Night’, ‘Blue Flame’ and ‘Knock’, the group have shown a smooth change into maturity with their subsequent musical drops. The new album also contains tracks penned by members MJ, Jinjin and Rocky, expanding their composing abilities.
Watching the music video, we see the members display their sexier sides. With a combination of purple suits, shiny cut-out black leather ensembles and dark neon lit sets, it makes for an intense captivating watching experience. The rapidly intricate dance break allows the Fantagio Music group to show their experienced synchronising abilities since debut. Flashing lights matching the broken synth beat add to the enthralling visuals of the video. Finishing the MV, we see the charismatic final pose of the choreography as the members stand in a V-shaped formation on the beaming stage they belong on.
With their last promoted release being their ‘Gateway’ mini album alongside lead single ‘Knock’ released in May last year, this new studio album comes almost a year since their group comeback. Through that time, members have been doing various activities:
- Visual and vocalist Cha Eunwoo recently concluded filming for the TVN high school webtoon romance K-Drama ‘True Beauty’.
- Lead vocal Moonbin and maknae Sanha debuted as their own sub-unit in September with their EP ‘IN-OUT’ featuring the minimal dark charming title track ‘Bad Idea’.
- Leader Jinjin has recently started a YouTube podcast, ‘Unboxing’, with PENTAGON’s Kino
- Main vocalist MJ became part of the project trot K-Pop group in August, SUPER FIVE, along with PENTAGON’s Hui, SBS’ Star King finalist Park Hyung Suk, TV Chosun’s Mr Trot participant Ok Jin Wook, and former A.CIAN member Choo Hyuk Jin. More recently he also became the MC for the idol YouTube show ‘Fact iN Star’
- Main dancer Rocky became the solo MC for the Chinese Korean Wave Program ‘Idol Coming to Work’ and also released his first OST for web drama, ‘Dok Go Bin Is Updating’, called ‘Shiny Blue’
