Astro's Moonbin and Sanha announce sub-unit comeback, fans ask 'Eunwoo solo next?'
After the success of their last sub-unit release, the dynamic duo of Moonbin and Sanha from the six-member boy group Astro, have announced their comeback which drops next month.

While Astro members have been booked and busy with members Jinjin and Rocky making their sub-unit debut with their first EP ‘Restore’ that dropped in January 2022 as well as MJ making his solo debut as a semi-trot singer.
Since it was announced that MJ would be taking a hiatus from his activities due to health complications, fans of Astro were taken aback. Now as of February 4, Fantagio Entertainment, the label that manages Astro’s group as well as solo/sub-unit activities, reported that Astro’s much-loved sub-unit comprising of members Moonbin and Sanha was going to make a comeback in March. Not only that but it was also announced that the duo was also going to pre-release a new single, ‘Ghost Town’ in February itself causing a lot of excitement amongst fans of the group.

The label reported the news of Moonbin and Sanha making a full comeback with their second mini-album that will release in March of 2020. In order to tease fans ahead of the comeback, Fantagio Entertainment revealed that the boys will pre-release the single ‘Ghost Town’ on February 11, 2022, a month ahead of their mini-album release. The label also reported that ‘Ghost Town’ will present a different look to the two idols in comparison to their last sub-unit concept. The label has also revealed that the track 'Ghost Town' will be released as an 'epilogue' to the upcoming album that drops in March which has also raised expectations amongst fans regarding Moonbin and Sanha’s second EP.
Members Moonbin and Sanha officially debuted as part of Astro’s first sub-unit named ‘Moonbin & Sanha’ back in September of 2020 with their first mini-album ‘In-Out’ with the title song ‘Bad Idea’ that made the duo's presence known on several domestic as well as international charts. While Moonbin and Sanha both have been doing well when it comes to solo or duo projects, Sanha is particularly also gaining a lot of popularity for his acting skills. Now with all members other members of Astro having made their solo/sub-unit debut or announced their sub-unit comeback, fans are eagerly waiting to witness Eunwoo go solo or become part of the sub-unit with MJ as soon as he recovers.
