TO1 (pronounced T-O-one) returned to the music scene with its third EP “Why Not??” with a new lineup of members, its agency Wakeone Entertainment announced Thursday.
Members Minsu, Jerome and Woonggi had decided to leave the band and Renta, Daigo and Yeojeong have joined.
As well as the lead track “Drummin,” the EP has a total of five tracks including “What A Beautiful Day,” “Sugar Shock” and “Butterflies.”
“Drummin” is a punk dance song. Chan and J.You helped write the rap for it.
“The new EP contains the nine members’ upbeat attitude and asks the world, ‘What is it that we cannot do?’” the agency explained.
“Why Not” was released online through streaming sites at 6 p.m. today.
Renta and Daigo ranked No. 13 and No. 16 in season two of the Japanese spin-off of Mnet’s K-pop competition show “Produce 101” series — “Produce 101 Japan” in 2021.
TO1 debuted in 2020 with 10 members and the EP “Reason for Being: Benovelence.” The band was formed by Mnet’s competition program “To Be World Klass” in 2019.
