After weeks of speculation, former LOONA members Hyeju, Gowon, Vivi, Yeojin and Hyunjin have debuted as a new group, under the name LOOSSEMBLE.
The launch of LOOSSEMBLE was announced on Aug 1, 2023, and new social media accounts for the group were revealed today, along with individual and group photographs.
The images showed the girls dressed in white and pale blue outfits, with a pale lavender color as the background for their individual photos.
The concept for the group appears to be a clean and refreshing one, and is a welcome relief for fans who have been waiting for the latest development after the LOONA members’ much-publicized legal battle with their former agency. The girls terminated their contracts in June 2023, and have signed on to their new agency, CTDENM.
The launch of LOOSSEMBLE comes after the successful July 2023 comeback by LOONA unit ODD EYE CIRCLE — comprising members Kim Lip, Jinsoul and Choerry — under their new agency Modhaus.
The group’s new name LOOSSEMBLE appears to be a combination of the words “LOONA” and “Assemble”, and their new logo is a dark blue image of a space rocket taking flight.
On July 29, 2023, the five members held their fan event called Orbit Sports Day, and later released a statement saying: “In the year of great chaos, Hyunjin, Yeojin, Vivi, Gowon, Hyeju and crew sheltered in the [LOOSSEMBLE] spacecraft. Here they are, preparing for a long voyage searching for their friends.”
Fans have reacted positively to the new group, and are looking forward to seeing the girls perform again soon.
In the meantime, here are the new individual images for the girls of LOOSSEMBLE.
