Boy group B1A4 have confirmed their first return to the K-Pop industry in 3 years. On October 5th, they released a QR code poster, which was then followed with the first trailer signalling their comeback. The group will be releasing their 4th full album, ‘Origine’. Check out the teaser and trailer down below!
B1A4 ‘ORIGINE’ POSTER + TRAILER:
The poster shows the trio in separate black and white shots. Their visuals show the maturity of the group and the filter appears to make this comeback a more melancholy one. In the bottom right corner, we see a QR code. When scanned, fans can view special contents that show the preparation process from the members for this upcoming album.
Moving on to the trailer, it is a complete 180 degree turn in intensity from the poster. The title of it translated to ‘Like a Movie’ lives up to its name. Set in a laundromat at night, we first hear overhead carnival fair like music from a tape recorder. All is not as it seems though as we realise that everyone inside is in fact a zombie. The zombies then start viciously waking up, not able to control themselves and the intensity of music changes to something far more sinister and punchy. The trailer cuts to black but not without one more scene. We lastly see member Sandeul with a woman holding hands inside the laundromat with zombies locked outside. A music box’s playful tunes play in the distance.
This comeback will be their first Korean release since their 7th mini album, ‘Rollin’ featuring the title track of the same name; that was released in September 2017. Besides then, they released their 5th Japanese album, ‘5’ in 2018, but have since gone without a release. After the departure of members Jinyoung and Baro from their label, WM Entertainment, the group thus will release this album as three members; CNU, Sandeul and Gongchan.
More teasers are expected to be coming soon so stay tuned for those to come.
B1A4‘s 4th full album, ‘Origine’ is slated for release on October 19th, 6PM KST!
