Five-member group MBLAQ released a teaser photo of their upcoming album Monday.
Titled "Smoky Girl," the group's talent agency J. Tune Camp released the single cover artwork featuring an image of a girl applying neon-colored lipstick.
The group engineered by K-pop star Rain has announced a return to performing on June 4 with what will be its fifth mini-album. The album is tentatively titled "Sexy Beat," and is expected to contain several songs written by the members – Seungho, G.O, Lee Joon, Cheondung and Mir. The concept of "sexy" and "smoky" is prevalent in recent works by such K-pop stars as Lee Hyo-ri who sports sexy make-up for her songs "Miss Korea" and "Bad Girl."
The group 2NE1's leader CL today will release solo album with a track titled "The Baddest Female," which originally had the same title as "Bad Girl," but was changed at the last minute.
Mir recently dropped out of the popular entertainment program "Real Men,"aired on MBC, for the promotion. Cheondung has a famous fellow K-pop star sister; Sandara of 2NE1.
Debuting in October 2009, the group released a series of songs notably last year's "This is War." MBLAQ stands for Music Boys Live in Absolute Quality.
