One & Six, APink’s seventh EP to be released at 6pm KST on July 2, will bring together the Six members with their fans as they unite as One for the group’s seventh anniversary, according to Plan A Entertainment.
This follows Apink’s extended play, Pink Up, which was released in June 2017. This year, the new EP will be the group’s venture outside their trademark innocent image. They plan to weave maturity into their songs and performances as they further showcase their dynamic talents.

They have posted their comeback schedule on their social media and will be actively posting concept photos, image and film teasers and music teasers starting on June 19.
Recently, the girls have also released their album tracklist revealing their new songs to the public. One & Six is composed of tracks, “ALRIGHT”, “Don’t Be Silly”, “별 그리고..”, “말보다 너”, “I Like That Kiss”, and title track, “1도 없어”.
According to Plan A Entertainment, the title track is said to be a song that embodies the feelings of a woman who has found her evolving color, and in this sense, hinting the group’s transformation from their usual innocent image. Apink plans to reveal a fresher charm by adding maturity through the songs in their new EP.
The title track is also co-written by songwriting duo Black Eyed Pilseung. They have written hits like Sistar’s “Touch My Body”, Troublemaker’s “Troublemaker”, and Twice’s “Cheer Up”, “TT”, and “Likey”. This is their second collaboration with Apink since 2016 which they co-wrote the group’s song, “Only One” for their Pink Revolution album.
Moreover, the members have also taken part in writing the songs for the upcoming mini album. Leader rapper Chorong wrote “Don’t Be Silly”, lead vocalist and dancer Namjoo penned “별 그리고..” (“Stars and..”), while happy virus Eunji wrote “말보다 너” (“You Are More Than Words”).
