The track is then followed by ‘Dear you’, ‘My doll’, ‘Quest’, ‘Who comes who knows’, and lastly ‘Swan’, which all layer into creating the perfect warm, cozy springtime sound.

The septet made their debut in 2015 and steadily climbed their way to become one of the biggest K-Pop girl groups. Six years into their career, OH MY GIRL charted #1 for the first time on Billboard K-Pop 100 with their
