Later, In April 2018, they released their first mini album titled ‘Void’., which contains the song ‘Baby’. In it they also expose their skills with English, since, in fact, their vocalist and leader Woosung was born in the United States.
In fact, he has a career as a soloist and it is very likely that he will present some of those songs in Colombia.
Then they released another mini album titled ‘Dawn’ in which they included the song ‘She’s In The Rain’, touching on sensitive and at the same time important issues such as depression. The video at the time caused controversy, as it included photos obtained from the Instagram of Kim Jong-hyun, who was the lead singer of another of the most famous K-pop bands called SHINee and died by suicide in December 2017. The band later clarified that It was a tribute and they decided to edit the video clip.
