BugAboo (bugAboo) is the latest girl group that is set to debut in October. Joining the autumn rush of comebacks, the girl group is set to release their first piece of music titled ‘bugAboo’. It is a single album consisting of three tracks with ‘bugAboo’ as the title track. The album has been produced by their CEO and founder Ryan Jhun. In the past, he has made smashing hits like Red Velvet’s ‘Dumb Dumb’ and SHINee’s ‘Don’t Call Me’. He had also roped in NCT’s Doyoung, Haechan and Loona’s HeeJin, Kim Lip, JinSoul and Yves for his latest music project ‘Maxis’.

His label, Ateam Entertainment also houses the popular boy group VAV. BugAboo is set to be their first girl group. The girl group currently consists of six members and caused quite a stir when they first performed at Miss Malaysia’s event in 2019. Due to the pandemic, their debut had been postponed but they are finally set to storm the K-pop scene. Playing on their name which means peek-a-boo, they have also created sub-units titled Bug and Boo. Here’s everything we know so far about their debut.

Music video teaser

Similarly, the teaser for the ‘bugAboo’ music video is a fun take on the scary Halloween concept. Full of creepy VFX sounds, we see the girls channel their inner psychopath by referencing iconic pop culture elements like Snow White’s evil queen and the boy in a yellow raincoat from ‘It’. The teaser ends as the girls, dressed in chic preppy plaid uniforms walk with weapons as they get ready to fight ghosts.
