On October 5, the group released their English debut single “Heart of Gold” which can be found on Spotify and Apple Music!
The song and video are very simple and sweet with pop vibes. It gives new fans a chance to hear the vocals of each of the members as they serenade their love interest, and also gives each of the boys a chance to shine.
How do you all feel about this new group making waves? Do you already have a bias?
