In the dynamic new visual, the members of (G)I-DLE flirt with danger as they engage in an exciting car chase outside a movie theatre, complete with fireworks and explosions. Each member also has her own corresponding doll, which come to life to terrorise a male doll.
“Yeah, I’ll be the tomboy / This is my attitude / Yeah I’ll be the tomboy,” they declare on the empowering rock-tinged track.
The explicit version of ‘Tomboy’ will be available on the physical version of the album, shared a representative from CUBE Entertainment during the group’s media showcase earlier today (March 14).
‘I Never Die’ marks the girl group’s first-ever full-length project since their debut in 2018. (G)I-DLE’s leader Soyeon had notably worked on nearly all the songs on the album, including ‘Tomboy’. Meanwhile, Chinese-born member Yuqi worked on ‘Liar’ and ‘Polaroid’, while Thai-born Minnie contributed to ‘Already’ and ‘Escape’.
The new album is also the group’s first project since former member Soojin left the group in August 2021. At the time, CUBE Entertainment did not name any explicit reasons for the idol’s departure, but also apologised for “having caused concern through the controversy associated with [Soojin]”.
Earlier this month, CUBE Entertainment released a statement notifying the public of the official termination of Soojin’s contract, six months after her departure from (G)I-DLE. “We respect the results of the police investigation, and we apologise for causing concern to many people,” said the company.
