ITZY’s Guess Who: Guess Who had surpassed 260,000 stock pre-orders
Meanwhile, ITZY has already set a new personal record with their upcoming mini-album, Guess Who. Guess Who had surpassed 260,000 stock pre-orders, achieving the group’s highest number of stock pre-orders for an album to date. Well, it is only onwards and upwards for ITZY!
“Mafia in the Morning” is the new album’s lead track written and composed by JYP founder Park Jin-young. It is an abbreviation for an inevitable morning and likened the message “I will approach you with my feelings veiled away and take the heart of my loved one” to a mafia game.
“Members belong to the MZ generation, and I think it’s because fans who live together in youth sympathize with our expressions and messages,” Yeji said. “It’s an album that’s wilder and bolder than before. You can see ITZY’s visuals and emotions changing over time and space.”
The five-member band has earned the title of “Super Rookie” with hit songs such as “DALLA DALLA,” “ICY,” and “WANNABE.” However, Yeji thinks there’s a long way to go. “If there’s anything I want to accomplish carefully, I’d like to hear that ITZY always exceeds expectations.”
Yuna revealed her will to show ITZY’s potential and limitlessness. Chaeryeong said ITZY would work hard to become a group suitable for such modifiers as “Representative icon of MZ generation” and “Girl group representing 4th generation.” She wants to get a different modifier such as “Fan shooter” or “Representative K-pop performer” who burns spirits.
