K-pop girl group Lightsum’s first EP “Into the Light” and title track music video “Alive” dropped Tuesday
The five-track EP from the Cube Entertainment group is their first follow-up since the single “Light a Wish” and music video for “Vivace” back in October. The group made their debut in July 2021 with the track “Vanilla.”
“The album spells out the emotions we face right now in a candid and bold attitude. Please look into our message that the album carries,” Nayoung shared. “The pandemic social distancing has been alleviated and we’re now able to hold a concert in the presence of our fans. We’re looking forward to performing to the cheers of our fans.”
“We hope to show our performance is different,” she said. “As we trained for ‘Alive,’ we agreed that the band’s previous title track ‘Vivace’ was more difficult than our debut song ‘Vanilla,’ but that ‘Alive’ was even incomparable to ‘Vivace.’ We wondered whether we’d actually be able to master it, but we did. We realized we’re strong enough, and we had worked hard for it.”
Expressing their aspirations for their comeback, Chowon said, “What we want more than good chart scores and rankings is to play more of our music to our fans, Sumit, and for more people to hear our music and remember Lightsum.”
Chowon and the other members also reference their Cube Entertainment labelmates (G)I-dle, who are slated for a world tour this year coming off the success of their “I Never Die” album and “Tomboy” music video.
