LOONA fans are excited, to say the least, to celebrate the first music show won by the group featuring all 12 members. “PTT” or “Paint The Town” is the group’s title track from their latest album and was released on June 28th 2021.
The group made waves right from their pre-debut activities, honing a very unique concept in an industry where new artists are constantly debuting. The 12-member girl-group revealed their roster with a solo debut for each one. One member debuted every month, and several members were clubbed into sub-units and also given a sub-unit release until LOONA finally debuted as 12 in 2018.
