It’s finally happening ToMoon! K-pop boy group ONEUS has dropped the first teaser image for their September comeback just a few days after confirming it.
On August 15 KST, ONEUS’ label, Rainbow Bridge World [RBW], unveiled the concept image teaser for the boy group’s 8th mini album MALUS. The concept teaser image shows a white serpent wrapped around a black and dark red space with smoke-like clouds swirling inside. Additionally, the teaser image revealed that the group would be making their comeback on September 5 KST.
Fans were quick to decipher the mysterious shape. Many pointed at the shape resembling an apple or in this case a poisoned apple. Backing their theories, fans explained that although the common name apple originates from the Old English word aeppel, its scientific name is Malus. Fans have also speculated that the group may make reference to Adam and Eve in its upcoming comeback.
However, ONEUS member Xion recently changed his Bubble bio to a snake and cherry emoji, leaving fans confused. Considering their lore surrounding monarchs, monsters and moons, fans have been trying to come up with different theories.
