South Korean boy group A.C.E. opens up 2021 with a cryptic announcement, sending their fans around the world into anticipation and uproar.
On January 2, 2021, a nine-image collage of a mysterious poster, featuring a flower in the middle, was uploaded on the group’s Instagram page. Tagged as #ACE_PROJECT, the images only contained the release schedule of the mysterious project: January 8, 2021, 2 PM KST.
The upcoming announcement, a collaboration project, marks the first release after officially announcing that A.C.E. has signed with Asian Agent for its management in the US as well as its global strategy in the future. First reported by Billboard last December 17, A.C.E. follows the footsteps of global K-Pop groups and Asian Agent clients BLACKPINK and (G)I-DLE. With this deal signed by the respective parties, fans can expect “star-powered music collaborations” and even a fashion endorsement deal early this year.
