Fans of the girl group had been begging the members, including Son Naeun, who didn’t renew her contract with Play M Entertainment and signed as an artist under YG Entertainment in the year 2019. And on 2021’s December, fans went wild when it was announced that all of the members would be participating in APINK’s upcoming special album ‘Horn’.

No hate, but YG Entertainment was quite slow with the comebacks of its artists last year ( uhm*Blackpink*uhm). Nonetheless, fans of Treasure could take a sigh of relief when earlier this year, the group’s agency had announced that the boy group would make a comeback with their first extended play ‘The Second Step: Chapter One. Treasure had been gone for a month after their Japanese studio album’s release in March of 2021. The group had basically disappeared. Thankfully, we will be getting a mini-album really soon with this comeback on February 15, 2022!
The album will have three physical versions: Photobook, Digipack (one for each member), and Kit. Also, Treasure took a step further with their album to make all of the products environmental-friendly. You could see how much effort had gone in to make an album that serves us great music as well as is safe for the environment.
