Group NATURE (members Uchae, Lu, Sunshine, Saebom, Sohee, Chaebin, Haru, Loha) released and came back with the 2nd Mini Album, ‘NATURE WORLD: CODE A.’
Celebrating the release of the album, NATURE held a media showcase at Ilchi Art Hall in Gangnam-gu to showcase their new album and share the behind-the-scenes story.
Especially, this album is garnering more attention as it is the first album after Sohee, a former contestant in Mnet’s ‘Produce 101’ Season 1, joined NATURE as a new member.
During the showcase, Sohee shared her thoughts, saying, “I have been promoting as part of a project group a lot, so I’m happy to become a regular member of the group. It still doesn’t feel real to me. I will promote and work hard as Sohee of NATURE from now on.” She continued, “I am shy around unfamiliar faces, so I was worried if I could adapt well or do well before the comeback, but I could adapt very quickly and come back with the album because the members were so nice to me.”
Lu said, “She adapted very well. I’m a bit slow to learn choreographies, but Sohee was too, so it was good to have a company while having extra choreography practices.”
Before the comeback, NATURE had a surprise release of the trailer video that announced the beginning of the new project, ‘NATURE WORLD.’ They continued to release the concept images of elegant and pure ‘Show Your Color’ version and powerful ‘Moby Dick’ version, heightening the curiosity around the new album.
Lu revealed, “You can find a number of hidden elements in the previously released music video and teaser videos. It should be fun to look for them.” Sunshine continued, “While filming for the teaser, we filmed with the words that start with the alphabet A after ‘CODE A’ as motifs, so you should be able to guess our story if you look for those words.”
The title track of this album ‘OOPSIE(My Bad)’ is a house-rhythm EDM track with strong synth bass and addictive beats, and it fully expresses NATURE’s unique energy and characteristics.
Sohee introduced the title track ‘OOPSIE’ by saying, “It’s a very impressive song with the hook that conveys the message, ‘Oops, sorry that I’m too good for you.’”
Other than the title, there are a total of 5 tracks that consist this album: ‘Bing Bing,’ a dance song with addictive lyrics and windy theme line after the title, ‘What’s Up,’ a modern pop song that the combination of Scandinavian and Tropical House doubles the feels, ‘Drinkin’’ that emphasizes energetic charms that’s different from the musics that NATURE has been showing, and ‘My Sun, My Moon, My Star,’ a retro 90s ballad song written by Park Chang Hyun that listeners can experience NATURE’s deep vocals.
Loha said, “I’m interested in vocals a lot, but I’ve been interested in rapping as well. I have transformed into a rapper in this album, so please look forward to it,” heightening the anticipation. Haru also revealed, “I think we can show you even better performances compared to the last album and ‘I’m So Pretty’ promotion. Please look forward to it.”
Sunshine also shared her thoughts, “In the previous albums, we showed you Chaebin’s emotional vocals and Sunshine’s high notes, but we are trying to show you a variety of vocals in this album. We will show you vocals that show off ‘girl-crush’ charms in between the songs this time.”
Many questions were about the concept of direct opposite compared to the last album. About the new looks, Lu replied, “I think it’s outdated to differentiate sexy or cute concept for girl groups. Each and every member of NATURE has varying charms, so it’s great to show you NATURE with mixed charms. In fact, we have intended this. There are some charms that we are born with,” stirring laughter among the audience.
Released after 4 months with the new project named ‘NATURE WORLD,’ this album is expected to show a wide musical spectrum of NATURE with different charms compared to the previous album.
Sunshine shared her determination, “During our last album showcase, I have said our goal is to ‘chart in’ on digital streaming platforms, and it really came true, as if by magic. We will try our best this album for ‘chart-in’ as well.”
Lastly, Lu gave an update on Aurora, a Chinese member of the group, by saying, “Aurora is currently in China and studying and appearing on Chinese variety shows. She is taking a break from the ‘OOPSIE’ promotion, but we will have her join us soon and let you see us in a full group.”
