the teaser is apparently coming out tomorrow in korea at 8am, so hopefully it will give a good feel for the mv & title track (it's rumored to be entitled "home"?) idk how well she's going to do w/ this comeback....it seems pretty rushed + there are a lot of artists making a comeback at the same time, ymc is so terrible w/ how they promote her tbh.....at least the music is gonna be ok hopefully
