After success in January, AOA returns
FNC executive Han Sung-ho yesterday posted an announcement on the company’s official website, saying that AOA’s new mini-album will hit music stores next month.
The group, comprised of Cho-a, Ji-min, Yu-na, You-Kyung, Hye-jeong, Min-a, Chan-mi and Seol-hyeon, rose to fame in January thanks to their single “Mini Skirts,” after barely being recognized in the K-pop scene since their 2012 debut.
Many industry insiders noted that the band’s recent success came from a shift to a sexier style. The provocative choreography for the recent single was banned by public broadcaster KBS.
