June 18, 2023 (Seoul, South Korea): GreatGuys, an eight-member idol group in their 6th year of debut, are back today with their 5th mini album, RECORD OF YOUTH EP. 1: DESTINY, which begins a new series focusing on the time they’ve spent together with their fans since their debut, and on the new memories yet to be made in the future. The new mini-album follows the group’s July 2022 release of their 4th mini album, WE’RE NOT ALONE FINAL: ONLY YOU and promotions throughout Korea and Japan.
RECORD OF YOUTH’s title song “luv luv luv” is in the synthwave music genre and features a cool and refreshing sound and addictive vocal sampling. It has a cheerful melody, honest heart and emotions, and witty lyrics and vocals, written and composed by GreatGuys member Dongin in collaboration with NUVO.
The album’s b-side track, “only U,” was also written and composed by Dongin, in collaboration with HOZE. The song consists of familiar sounds with acoustic pianos and guitars, and the color of the piece is further enhanced by using a simple but addictive synthesizer main theme. It is a fan song with a simple and soft melody and a message of love and gratitude to the GreatGuys’ fandom, “Grace.”
