In the 50-second clip, the girl group explore the city of Seoul, wandering through different cafes and shops alone before FaceTiming one another. Eventually, they put on fancy masks and decide to meet at a rooftop where they take pictures.
On May 3, the K-pop girl group announced that they will drop their comeback project ‘9 Way Ticket’ on May 17. They also shared on social media the first image from the upcoming release.
In the photograph, the girl group face away from the camera as they stand on a rooftop that overlooks the city skyline at night. It is now revealed that the rooftop is the same location as the one featured in the teaser clip above.

‘9 Way Ticket’ is the follow-up to fromis_9’s 2020 mini-album ‘My Little Society’, which arrived last September. It included the title track ‘Feel Good (Secret Code)’ and marked the girl group’s first comeback in over a year.
The mini-album also performed well outside of their home state of South Korea. Shortly after its release, it clinched the number one spot on the iTunes Top Albums charts in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Latvia, Malaysia and Taiwan, according to Soompi.
At the time, member Lee Seo Yeon did not participate in the group’s promotional activities due to a leg injury. In September 2020, their agency Off The Record said that Lee “needed to focus on treatment and recovery”, as translated by Soompi.
It is not yet confirmed if Lee will participate in the performances for this time around, though the teaser seems to hint that the group will return as nine members.
