Exclusive Review: UP10TION Mini Album “Laberinto” Press Showcase
On December 6th, UP10TION made their comeback with their mini album “Laberinto”. Kpopmap was gladly invited to the exclusive press showcase and happy to be able to witness the stage of their title track ‘Blue Rose’.
Before entering the showcase venue, Kpopmap was presented with an album of “Laberinto”! We would like to give our thanks once again to UP10TION.
After a short waiting time, the showcase began with the members coming on stage and greeted those who were present with bright smiles.
Group and individual photo taking time took place and for those who want to see more exclusive HD photos by Kpopmap, be sure to check them out here.
After the photo time, the boys took over the stage and performed for the first time, their new title track ‘Blue Rose‘.
After the dynamic performance, the 10 boys sat down and shared what they have been up to since their last comeback. As some might have already known, UP10TION boys had been busy with their U.S tour and they also headed over to Europe for another tour to greet their fans. Along the way, they also visited Japan frequently for their promotion.
It has been a long while since they had promoted in Korea.
Wei shared that it has been 8 months since their last comeback and time to time, they also monitor other artists’ stage performances by watching music shows.
Talking about their mini album “Laberinto” and title track ‘Blue Rose’, Xiao shared that blue rose actually represents how love will not happen. Hence, the song is talking about how love will not blossom.
SunYoul added by saying when they first received the track, they were slightly flustered as it was different from the style which they have been doing. However despite that, all the members worked hard and believe that they managed to pull the concept off, showing the unique side of UP10TION.
Continuing, Xiao highly recommend ‘With You’ and it was noted that BIT-TO had wrote the lyrics and composed the song! JinHoo also recommended ‘Happy Birthday’ as it is a lively song and should be played during someone’s birthday.
Last but not least, they also did not forget to share their feelings as idols who have debuted in the industry in 2015.
They shared that even though its their 4th year as idols, they will continue to work hard for their fans and passion for music just like how when they first debuted. The boys are also very grateful to their fans who have always been patiently waiting for their return.
UP10TION concluded the showcase by asking to anticipate for their promotion activities and aim to end the year 2018 safely and soundly.
