ILY:1 have first comeback in just 3 months with 'Que Sera Sera', fans say 'a banger'
K-pop girl group ILY:1 is already back with their second single album ‘Que Sera Sera’ on July 19. Continuing with their high-teen girl crush concept that fans loved during their debut, ‘Que Sera Sera’ is a colourful and energetic first comeback, perfect for the summer. While their debut single had four tracks, ‘Que Sera Sera’ is a 2-track single album with the title track of the same name. It was released three months after the girls’ debut in April with ‘Love In Bloom’ which took the K-pop industry by surprise as ILY:1 charted in the top 20 of Gaon and even entered iTunes charts all over the globe.
ILY:1 is a six-member group that debuted under FC ENM. They turned heads as four of its members are actually known faces. Members Ririka, Hayase Hana, Rona (Chang Ching) and Ara (Lee Yunji) had participated in the ambitious K-pop survival show ‘Girls Planet 999’. The Mnet show had then formed the debut group Kep1er with the top nine winners. ILY:1 also had their own pre-debut reality show ‘ILY:0’ which aired in February allowing fans to get to know the girl group better. They had also come under the spotlight as one of their missions was to cover Girls’ Generation’s ‘Into the New World’.

‘Que Sera Sera’ is a high-energy dance-pop song with a summer concept. The music video is equally vibrant and refreshing as the girls dance around a pool and show off their youthful charms in pastel outfits and hairstyles, surrounded by floral and summery props. The song has dreamy elements and sounds as ILY:1 sing about making their wish come true with the power of love. The girls also found ‘Que Sera Sera’ meaningful to them as it shows off the harmony between the multinational members.
