Orbits scream ‘Loona is coming’ as girl group announces comeback

Just like the headline says, LOONA IS COMING. 

Orbits around the world were surprised as the 12-member girl group dropped a teaser for the 4th Mini Album on their official Twitter account on June 1, 2021, 12 M.N. KST.

The tweet reads, “A deo vocatus rite paratus,” which is Latin for “God calls those who are truly prepared.” In the teaser image, more Latin words are present, which reads “Citius, Altius, Fortius. Acta est fabula, plaudite.” Translating the words, it would mean “Faster, higher stronger. The story is done, applaud.”

LOONA’s fans, Orbits, had a mixture of emotions at the group’s announcement, ranging from excitement to even feelings of “clownery” or bewilderment.

To explain this tweet, some (if not all) members have shown support for the LGBTQ+ community through their interviews, and were even surprised at the number of LGBTQ+ fans that they have.

Some fans have even started theorizing about the girl group’s former concepts and the connection of the new one. 

News of the well-loved girl group’s comeback has even reached the top of Twitter’s trending list, with “OT12” and “LOONA IS COMING” among others being on the list. Some fans were even calling for LOONA to come back as 12 members – their leader, Haseul, has been on hiatus for more than a year for health reasons. 

The 12-member group’s 4th Mini Album, titled ‘&’, is set for release on June 28, 2021 at 6 P.M. KST. This marks the group’s comeback after 8 months since their album ’12:00’.
