The quintet – consisting of Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and HueningKai – described the lead single “Good Boy Gone Bad” as a hardcore hip hop song with a rock sound.

Group leader Soobin said the main track is about an innocent boy going through his first breakup and going through a lot of complex emotions.

“For this album, it’s different emotions that a boy goes through after breaking up with his first love and (we’ve included) different genres of music.

“Thursday is a day in the middle of the week, but in a way it feels like the weekend, doesn’t it? Just like that, we expressed the emotions of a boy who went through a breakup of the transition period from a boy to an adult,” he added.
