After releasing all teasers for WINNER Week, fans were expecting a music video release from YG Entertainment, but were instead hit with more teaser dates.


Accompanying the release of the dates, YG Entertainment also released a debut album teaser on WINNER‘s official YouTube account. The teaser video starts with a recap of the show WIN: Who Is Next, a survival audition show that was to select YG’s new boy band.


Team A, now known as WINNER, won the survival program and show their nostalgia through the words, “We were like do or die back then. We were too happy and too sad. That experience made us grow a lot.”


The video then moves along to the members expressing their worries and desires for their debut as they get their hair and make-up done.


Afterwards, all 5 members Kang Seungyoon, Kim Jinwoo, Lee Seunghoon, Song Minho, and Nam Taehyun all dressed up in formal suits, individually walking up and down a runway, showing off their new fashion concept.


At the very end of the video, YG includes the dates of the Launching Show: 6/08, On-Line Release: 12/8 and the Off-Line Release: 14/8, which will be concluding WINNER Week.
