Band DAY6 unveils the unit for the first time in 5 years since their debut and responds to the wait of fans.
JYP Entertainment (hereinafter referred to as JYP) first released a teaser image that announces the start of the DAY6 unit on the official SNS channel at 0:00 on the 11th.
This unit consists of 3 members, Young K, Won-pil, and Do-woon, and the team name was revealed as ‘DAY6 (Even of Day)’. It releases a new song on the 31st, the last day of August, and makes its official debut as a unit.
DAY6 (Even of Day) is the name of the unit that JYP head Park Jin-young created. Park Jin-young focused on the English old word ‘even’, meaning ‘night’, and dissolved the meaning of ‘day’ coming after ‘even’ in the unit name. It conveys a message that a bright day will finally come through a deep and dark night, and the ambition to deliver hopeful resonant through music.
DAY6 released their 6th mini album ‘The Book of Us: The Demon’ in May of this year and the title song ‘Zombie’ (Zombie) and received great love and favorable reviews.
‘Zombie’ was ranked 4th in Melon, including 1st in Genie Music and Bugs real-time charts. The 6th mini album reached the top of the worldwide iTunes album chart, a comprehensive iTunes chart, proving the reputation of the ‘K-pop representative band’.
Young K and Won-pil wrote the song, which compared a person who lives a simple, repetitive daily life without emotion to a ‘zombie’, and gained wide sympathy.
The three people, Young K, Won-pil, and Do-woon, present a more mature sensibility through unit DAY6 (Even of Day) based on their excellent subject selection and song expression ability.
In the teaser image released on the 11th, three invitations with the unit name, member name, and official debut date appear in the black universe, making them look forward to their sortie.
DAY6 (Even of Day) will sequentially open various teasing contents related to their debut on the 31st and will quench the thirst of fans.
