In the afternoon of July 21, YG Entertainment uploaded a picture of WINNER on its official blog to mark the group’s comeback, which is to take place in four days. The picture features WINNER members looking fresh in clean-cut white t-shirts and shorts.

On August 4, WINNER is to release its new EP containing “LOVE ME LOVE ME” and “ISLAND” as title tracks.

“LOVE ME LOVE ME” is a disco song with a catchy hook that well portrays WINNER’s sophisticated musical tone. “ISLAND” is a dance hall and tropical genre song with unique lyrics about an island.

WINNER members participated in writing the music and lyrics of both songs, enabling the fans to see their upgraded musical style.

After making a comeback in April with “REALLY REALLY”, WINNER has been actively promoting the song by appearing on music shows and radio and variety programs. Currently, MINO and JINU are regular cast members of New Journey to the West 4 and The Wizard of Ozi, respectively, and both of them have gained great popularity. Therefore, expectations are running higher than ever for WINNER’s new EP.

An YG official said, “The EP is all about the youth of the twenties. It will be a chance to see WINNER’s fresh young color and identity.”

The pre-order of WINNER’s new EP will start at 5 PM on July 31. The EP will come out in two versions, FOR YOUTH and FOR DREAM, which have different booklet images. It will be sold from August 7 on YG E-shop and other online and offline record shops.

The July 29th episode of MBC’s Show! Music Core showed WINNER singing “REALLY REALLY” at the show’s 2017 Ulsan Summer Festival.

WINNER members came up on the stage wearing costumes that showed their unique personalities. They seemed to be completely relaxed on stage, and their live singing was impeccable even though they had to do big dance moves, which enthralled the audience in Ulsan.

After the show was aired, people posted comments online praising WINNER’s live performance. WINNER members did not have any back vocals, and the audience was able to truly enjoy the song sang by their voices only. Although it was not a perfected version as if on a CD, WINNER’s live singing enabled the audience to truly enjoy WINNER’s real singing.

Usually, idol groups use a lot of back vocals for live performances on music shows because it is hard to monitor their singing and male idol groups also have do a lot of aggressive dancing. Also, festivals like the Ulsan Summer festival attract a large number of audience, and monitoring live singing becomes even more difficult because of all the cheering.

However, WINNER was different. Their voice pierced through the air, and although it was a live performance, their singing was great and in tune with the audience. WINNER also improvised and made changes to the song, making the audience know that it was 100 % live singing.

Live performances work particularly well when there is a large crowd because singers can react promptly to the audience’s response and really connect with them. This is why singers love singing at their own concerts. WINNER deserves to be praised for their live singing on Show! Music Core as it shows that WINNER truly has what it takes to be a great singer.

It is not an exaggeration to say WINNER’s “REALLY REALLY”, which was released on April 4, became their biggest hit song. This means that WINNER has succeeded in turning their biggest crisis of losing a member into their greatest opportunity. People are wondering whether their lucky streak will continue with their new song “LOVE ME LOVE ME”, which will be released on August 4.
