ASC2NT Rises to Debut with First Single Album "Expecting Tomorrow"

On May 7, ASC2NT, the first 5-member boy group under New Ways Company, consisting of  Karam, Injun, Jay, Reon, and Kyle made their blooming debut with the first single album "Expecting Tomorrow." 

Karam, Injun, and Jay are from the 2ndg generation group DGNA which debuted in 2010 and are joined with new members Reon and Kyle. The team name was inspired by the word 'ASCENT', which means 'to rise' or 'ascend'. The number '2' in the team name symbolizes the beginning of a second life, and contains the ambition to rise to a higher place by starting a second life through strong will and passion. 

Through their debut album "Expecting Tomorrow," ASC2NT sings about the process of overcoming difficulties and the courage to find hope even in the darkness, and plans to deliver a message of passion and hope for dreams to listeners. 

The title song 'LOVE ME DO' is a medium tempo song using guitar and synth brass. The cheerful and addictive melody contains the hopeful and confident charm that a brighter tomorrow and a brighter future awaits than yesterday, such as 'Get over the wall that was blocking me' and 'Now I am the main character of my life.'
