According to reports from a Korean media outlet on May 27, rookie K-pop girl group Kep1er would be entering the June comeback list, marking its first comeback. In a phone conversation with Dispatch, the group's agency revealed that the group is making a comeback in June. According to the agency, the girl group has finished filming for its new song and is getting to the end of the production process for its next album.
The date for the group's return has been set for June 20. The 9-piece girl group was selected from Mnet's Girls Planet 999 survival program and released its debut mini-album, First Impact, in January of this year, with the title song WA DA DA.
The group is presently participating in Mnet's Queendom 2, which will air the live finale next week. Following their stunning debut, the girl group's impressive performances on the program have raised extremely great standards for its future release.
From the week of January 2 to January 8, the group's debut EP went to number one on the Gaon Weekly Album Chart. The group broke the record by taking first place on two music shows in just 12 days after debuting with its title song WA DA DA, being the fastest girl group to do that. With its successful debut, fans are highly anticipating the first comeback to be a major hit.
