  1. Quick question, what the f*ck does one even write for commentary?

    Also yeah the solo singles mostly have higher scores from me so far except Kiss Later hrsflkflksjg that was rough BUT some of the unit songs are amazing too, liiike You and Me Together, Fairy Tale, Sonatine, frozen, one way ... love4eva is all right could've done without random Grimes and Chaotic is pretty good as well.

    Preparing some curses just in case you all decide to tank 1/3 and yyxy just because they don't do enough """bops"""

    Yves' Who's Next Girl? teaser was released on November 7th, 2017, with her full reveal following a week later on November 14th. Additional photo teasers were released on November 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd. On the 24th, the "new" MV teaser was released to YouTube, and a slightly different teaser was released to NaverV on the 25th. Her single album's cover and tracklist were also revealed on the 25th. Yves' first selfie was released on the 26th, and her final teaser photo was released on the 27th, along with a contest to win a signed copy of her single album.

    The "Yves" single album and the "new" MV were both released on November 28th. On the 29th, another selfie of Yves, this time with ViVi and Choerry, was posted to announce the winner of her contest, and on the 30th, Yves' LOOПΔ TV arc started with episode 225. Yves had her first fan event in support of her single album on December 9th. On December 17th, it was announced that when "new" reached 1 million views, the Choreography ver. would be released. On January 9th, 2018, the original "new" MV reached the 1 million views goal and the Choreography ver. was released as promised.

    On December 1st, BlockBerry Creative announced that when #TheCarol tag on Instagram reaches 8,854 posts, they would release a new version of "The Carol" featuring three new members. On December 11th, the first teaser photo for "The Carol 2.0" was released, although the participating members were still kept secret. A second teaser revealing ViVi, Choerry, and Yves as the three members singing "The Carol 2.0" was released on the 12th, with the lyric video for the song following on the 13th. In the description of the lyric video for "The Carol 2.0", it was revealed that ViVi, Choerry, and Yves had formed a new, one-time "transverse unit", ViRryVes (pronounced believe), to perform the track. Episode 253 of LOOПΔ TV chronicled the shooting of the lyric video.

    Yves (pronounced eve) got off to an awkward start, having debuted only three weeks after joining the company, but it didn't take long for her to show she's just as weird as everyone else in the group. She's probably LOOПΔ's fiercest performer, too.

    LOOПΔ's most popular (and gayest? definitely gayest) member had a large online following even before being announced as a member. Her voice is as big as her personality.

    On March 9th, the final Who's Next Girl? teaser was released, and Olivia Hye's full reveal was released on the 17th. Additional solo teaser photos were released on the 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd, and duo teaser photos with Olivia Hye and Go Won were released on the 23rd and 25th. Olivia Hye's cover and track descriptions were revealed on the 26th, with her single album's tracklist and release date following later that same day. The "Egoist" MV teaser was released to YouTube on March 28th, and a slightly different teaser was released to NaverV 12 hours later. Go Won released a support message for Olivia Hye's debut on the 29th.

    The "Olivia Hye" single album and the "Egoist (feat. JinSoul)" MV were both released on March 30th. A short clip of HyunJin and Choerry practicing the "Rosy" choreography was released on April 1st. On April 7th, Olivia Hye, accompanied by Go Won, had her first fan event in support of her single album. On April 9th, Olivia Hye made her first appearance on LOOПΔ TV with episode 310; the arc chronicling the shooting of her photobook and music video began with episode 316 on April 19th.

    As @Rainbow Trousers once said, Olivia Hye is the "Eeyore of the group". Whether it's being mistaken for the oldest, failing to blow a dandelion, getting into the wrong van after promotions, or being the last one left signing autographs, anything that can go wrong for Olivia Hye will go wrong.

    On April 27th, the youth youth by young teaser was released, revealing the third sub-unit's name as LOOΠΔ / yyxy (pronounced why-why-by-why). On May 10th, the first yyxy teaser photo, revealing the unit's mini-album title, "beauty&thebeat", was released. On May 14th, the first solo teaser of Yves was released; Chuu followed on the 15th, Go Won followed on the 17th, and Olivia Hye's teaser was released on the 18th. Additional photo teasers, each revealing a track title from their mini-album, were released on the 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. On the 25th, the "love4eva" MV teaser was released to YouTube, and a slightly different teaser was released to NaverV 12 hours later. Additional group teasers were released on the 24th, and 26th, with pre-orders also going live on the 26th.

    The preview video for "beauty&thebeat" was released on the 28th, and the Budapest teaser was released on the 29th. The "beauty&thebeat" mini-album and the "love4eva (feat. Grimes)" MV were both released on May 30th (my birthday ddd), along with the album's liner notes. The Choreography Practice for "love4eva" was released on the 31st, and yyxy's LOOΠΔ TV arc started with episode 336 on the same day. yyxy performed "love4eva" for the first time at the Line&Up event on June 2nd, and had their debut stage on M COUNTDOWN on the 7th. On the 17th, yyxy had their first fan event as a unit in support of their mini-album. On July 14th, the "one" teaser? music video? short film? was released, bringing yyxy's story to a close (for now).

    While LOOΠΔ 1/3 and LOOΠΔ / ODD EYE CIRCLE both focused on romantic love (though from different perspectives), LOOΠΔ / yyxy focused on self-love and self-acceptance. Their music videos are easily the darkest chapters of the entire LOOПΔverse story so far, especially "Egoist", "love4eva", and "one." These darker themes, as well as the pure, unadulterated gayness of Yves and Chuu's story, makes this unit, to me, the most intriguing. I don't think that's an unpopular opinion, either, as these four girls' solo and unit album sales were extremely impressive for a rookie girl group - or, hell, in general, even. It's a shame we missed out on getting a repackage from them, because I have no doubt it would've been something truly special.

    On January 18th, BlockBerry Creative announced the first LOOΠΔ X Study Group would take place on February 3rd. At the Study Group event, fans were show several unreleased videos including the choreography versions of ViVi's "Everyday I love you", JinSoul's "Singing in the Rain", Chuu's "Heart Attack", and Go Won's "One&Only", as well as a full color version of ODD EYE CIRCLE's "Sweet Crazy Love".

    On February 16th, the 2018.02.29 teaser was released, and the Cinema Theory : Up&Line teaser followed on March 1st, giving fans their first look at the 12th member of the group, Olivia Hye. On March 4th, the LOOПΔ TV arc covering the shooting of the Cinema Theory teaser began with episode 285. Like with LOOΠΔ X Study Group, several unreleased videos were show to fans at Cinema Theory - including a new version of LOOΠΔ 1/3's "지금, 좋아해 (Love&Live)" with new verses and Choerry subbing in for HyunJin, short music videos for ODD EYE CIRCLE's "Starlight" and Chuu & Go Won's "See Saw", a full-length "Uncover" music video from ODD EYE CIRCLE, an alternate cut of Olivia Hye's "Egoist", a version of yyxy's "love4eva" with an unreleased dance break, as well as several short clips filling in the gaps of the LOOΠΔverse story so far. Of the clips shown at the various Cinema Theory events, only the yyxy "one" clip has been officially made available online.

    On April 14th, the PREMIERE GREETING : Line&Up teaser was released, giving fans their first taste of all 12 girls performing together. The two-day event was held on June 2nd and 3rd, and featured performances by all three units as well as solo stages by HeeJin and YeoJin The LOONA TV arc covering this event started on June 29th with episode 356.

    The LOOΠΔ go into Orbit teaser was released on June 10th, announcing that the full group would have their debut concert on August 19th. On July 19th, the debut concert's name was announced as "LOOΠΔ birth", and a teaser photo featuring the first and last girls, HeeJin and Olivia Hye, was released on the 26th. On July 31st LOOΠΔ's final pre-debut release, "favOriTe", was announced. The "favOriTe" MV teaser was released on August 2nd, with the full MV following on the 7th. The group's final pre-debut teaser, for their concert, was released on August 18th. On August 19th, the girls performed a sold-out show at Olympic Hall finally bringing the pre-debut project to a close after nearly two years.
