Blockberry Creative infamously mismanaged the K-pop girl group Loona (이달의 소녀), leading to multiple lawsuits by the members and resulting in the ultimate dissolution of the group. Fortunately, the Loona members have remained close — sometimes even reuniting at the same label or redebuting together, as was the case with Modhaus and Odd Eye Circle respectively. That’s not the only reunion though! CTDENM (Connecting the Dots + Entertainment) reunited former Loona members Vivi, Hyunjin, Gowon, Hyeju (Olivia Hye), and Yeojin as the group Loossemble, combining the words “Loona” and “assemble,” and here is the exact date for when Loossemble made their debut, plus details of their first US tour.
Loossemble Debuted on September 15, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. KST
Loossemble made their debut on September 15, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. KST, with their first, self-titled mini-album and the lead song, “Sensitive.” The Loossemble mini-album contains eight tracks in total: “Intro: Searching for Their Friends,” “Sensitive” (title track), “Real World,” “Colouring,” “Newtopia,” “Strawberry Soda,” “Day by Day,” and “Sensitive (English Ver.).” Notably, members Vivi and Yeojin contributed lyrics to “Colouring,” Gowon contributed lyrics to “Newtopia,” Hyunjin contributed lyrics to “Day by Day,” and Hyeju contributed lyrics to “Real World.” Even more notably, former Loona member Yves both contributed lyrics to and even co-composed on “Strawberry Soda.”
CTDENM was started by a former Loona creative director, Yoon Doyeon, and Vivi and Hyunjin had signed with the company as of June 11, 2023. Gowon, Hyeju, and Yeojin were announced to have joined CTDENM on July 5, 2023. It feels like a good home for all of the members.
To commemorate their debut, Loossemble went on a multiple-stop tour of the United States, “Loona Assemble: The US Debut Ceremony,” which began September 15, 2023 in New York and concluded on October 7, 2023 in California, and the full concert dates and venues follow below.
