Singer Chungha will release her song “Gotta Go” on Jan. 2. She is collaborating with music producer duo Black Eyed Pilseung for the first time since their song “Roller Coaster,” which came out earlier this year.

Luna, from girl group f(x), will reveal her new EP “Even So” on Jan. 4, a song written and produced by the singer herself. Luna previously flaunted her vocal and musical skills as a solo singer on her solo albums “Free Somebody” (2016) and “It Was Love” (2016).
