K-Pop Group ITZY Explains How Their New Single 'In The Morning' Is Based on the Mafia Game

The girls of ITZY are opening up about their latest smash!

The K-Pop girl group joined The Chart Show with Brooke Reese on Apple Music 1 on Thursday (May 6).

Here’s what they had to say…

Ryujin, on the themes of their new era: “This EP, Guess Who, we are exploring a more deeper and more darker concept than the previous album. As you know, the base is confidence, but a little deeper and darker.”

Find out what else they said…

Yuna, on the EP: “It was kind of new challenge for us. So I was surprised to find the new aspect of me. Yeah. That’s very intense for me. Yes.”

Chaeryeong, on the EP: “And every part was new for me. So when I prepared this album, I was a little bit worried, but at the same time was very interesting.”

Ryujin, on “In The Morning”: “Our title track ‘In The Morning,’ is based on the mafia game. In Korea, we do the mafia game and it’s not a real mafia, but in this song we are doing the mafia role. So we conceal our feelings in the daytime and we threw everything and reveal ourselves in the nighttime. So you can see the two sides of us. So ‘In The Morning’ that literally means that in the morning you will be mine.”
