On July 19th, boy group ONF released the comeback teaser schedule ahead of their new summer popup album, ‘POPPING’. The six member group recently announced their return with a video teaser of an ice cube falling into a cup of water. With the schedule confirmed, this thus only builds anticipation towards their speedy comeback.
2021 has been proving a busy year for the WM Entertainment boy group. From releasing their 1st full album, ‘ONF: My Name’ in February, they finally achieved their 1st music show win since their 2017 debut with its title track, ‘Beautiful Beautiful’. Following strong with an April repackage album, ‘City of ONF’, sales grew amassing over 86,000 physical sales. With another comeback only 4 months after their last, their momentum shows no signs of stopping.
Check out the schedule down below!
ONF ‘POPPING’ COMEBACK TEASER SCHEDULE:
Examining the poster, the sextet have a mammoth amount of teasers prepared ahead of this comeback. Starting from the 20th, they will drop their pre-release track, ‘POPPING!’ to give everyone what is set to come. With obscure titles such as ‘Summer breaking news’, and ‘Summer is pool’, we are left in the dark as to what these teasers might be. However, with a total of 21 individual releases, there’s bound to be much excitement across the dropping of each of them.
Aside of the teasers, the contrasting igloo and snow whilst leaving a refreshing impression with its colour scheme, is definitely synonymous with the season of winter rather than summer. What this symbolises for this comeback we have yet to see.
An interesting aspect of this comeback is it is being labelled as a ‘summer popup album’. Whilst summer, or summer special albums are commonplace in K-Pop, a popup album is a little rarer, particularly with one named in the title. With a teaser called ‘Pre-release design open’ scheduled on July 26th, this could elude to the group to displaying a unique form of packaging for the physical copy of the album.
ONF‘s summer popup album, ‘POPPING’ is scheduled to drop on August 9th, 6PM KST!
