In the vibrant visual, the nine-member act showcase their powerful choreography to the high-energy track. “Wa Da Da Da / Running vroom vroom vroom / Like a supersonic / Wa Da Da, Wa Da Da, Run,” they chant on the chorus, stomping to the beat.
‘Wa Da Da’ is the the lead single of their first mini-album ‘First Impact’, both of which were released today (January 3). The project also includes two other new songs, ‘See The Light’ and ‘MVSK’, as well as the group’s versions of Girls Planet 999 tracks like ‘Shine’, ‘Another Dream’ and ‘O.O.O’.
At the beginning of December, the girl group suspended all activities after a staff member who worked with them tested positive for COVID-19. WAKEONE and Swing Entertainment soon announced that Kep1er’s debut, which was originally slated for December 14, would be postponed to 2022.
A week later, the agencies announced that members Xiao Ting and Mashiro had been diagnosed with COVID-19. They shared that the two cases were detected by a “regular PCR testing”, which had been implemented following the aforementioned staff member’s positive diagnosis. The remaining members of Kep1er had tested negative.
Kep1er were originally formed in October 2021 in the final episode of the Mnet reality series Girls Planet 999. The multinational nine-member girl group comprises members from South Korea, Japan and China.
