fromis_9 to make long-awaited return with first studio album

‘Unlock My World’ will be the girl group’s first release since the departure of Jang Gyu-ri

K-pop girl group fromis_9 have announced their long-awaited return with their first studio record next month.

On May 16 at Midnight KST, the eight-member girl group unveiled a series of teaser clips announcing the title of their upcoming studio album, ‘Unlock My World’. Due out on June 5 at 6pm KST, it will be fromis_9’s first full-length record since their debut in 2018.

The new teaser resembles a locked phone, which is then unlocked by a pattern that forms the number nine, revealing eight symbols that presumably represent each member of the girl group.


fromis_9 have also released a promotional schedule for the record, highlighting key upcoming dates. The album’s concept trailer will be released on May 29, followed by a highlight medley on May 31 and music video teaser on June 3, all at 9pm KST.

On the same day, the girl group also dropped a tracklist for ‘Unlock My World’. The upcoming record will feature 10 new tracks, several of which were written and produced by the members. Notably, the track ‘눈맞춤’ was written by all eight members of fromis_9 and produced by Hayoung.

‘Unlock My World’ will mark fromis_9’s first comeback since their fifth mini-album ‘from our Memento Box’ arrived in June 2022. Shortly after the group wrapped up promotions for the release, Pledis Entertainment announced the departure of member Jang Gyu-ri, who had been with the group since their debut.


fromis_9 currently comprises members Lee Sae-rom, Song Ha-young, Park Ji-won, Roh Ji-sun, Lee Seo-yeon, Lee Chae-young, Lee Na-gyung and Baek Ji-heon.

News of the group’s return was first reported in February 2023, when YTN Star claimed that music industry officials had shared that fromis_9 would be releasing their first studio album in March.

Pledis Entertainment later confirmed that the act were indeed preparing to make a comeback, but did not comment on its release date at the time.
