Idol group Weki Meki has made a comeback with a new song using the theme of a youth drama.
Weki Meki finally released its fifth mini-album “I AM ME.” on digital music sites at 6 p.m. on November 18th.
The album received keen attention from domestic and foreign music fans as it’s Weki Meki‘s first comeback after the release of its 4th mini album “NEW RULES” in October last year. They have put their heart and soul into working on the album as well as preparing for the stage performance as they resumed their activities after the longest hiatus since their debut.
Like the album name “I AM ME.”, Weki Meki has honestly told the story of young people in their 20s. The members did not only sing and perform, but also took the lead in writing and composing songs to complete the album with Weki Meki’s color.
The title song “Siesta” is a cheerful pop song with impressive electronic and deep house melodies. The song was created by composers Anna Timgren and Harold Philippon, who created hit songs such as Oh My Girl‘s “Dun Dun Dance” and TWICE‘s “The Feels”.
“Siesta” means a nap in Spanish. Through the song’s lyrics, the group expressed their hope to provide comfort and healing to fans with Weki Meki-like music and stages, just like how a nap gives vitality to one’s daily life.
In addition to “Siesta,” the new album contains a total of six songs with hopeful lyrics, including “Who am I,” “Luminus,” “Sweet Winter,” “First Dream,” and “One Day.”
Through the music video, Weki Meki showed their growing image. Weki Meki expressed the process of finding identity through the “Identity” version concept photo taken in white outfits. The group later had a soft but firm and bold concept through the colorful music video of “Siesta.” The appearance of the members smiling pleasantly and happily in front of the firecrackers exploding along with all kinds of worries and anxiety is expected to arouse sympathy among young people, who hope to find happiness among hardships.
Weki Meki, which debuted in 2017 with its first mini-album “WEME,” has entered its fifth year of activities. Weki Meki said at a press conference to commemorate the comeback, “I think many people will sympathize with us because of our honest story expressed through this album. I hope many people will love it,” adding, “This album is full of good songs, including not only the title song but also the b-side songs. We hope to be called the idols people can trust to listen to.”
