After releasing their sixth mini-album, Happily Ever After in April, NU’EST is ready to move on to their seventh! This will be their second mini-album to be released since coming back as a five-member group in January. Like in Happily Ever After, the concept photos for The Table use a lot of warm tones, but the overall theme seems different. The warm tones in the concept photos for The Table give off a sense of familiarity as if the members are simply enjoying each other’s company.
Like with most of NU’EST’s previous albums, members were quite involved with preparing the tracks for their seventh mini-album for L.O.Λ.E. Main vocalist Baekho participated in writing lyrics and composing all of the tracks for The Table. Leader JR also participated in writing song lyrics for many of the tracks while Minhyun took part in writing lyrics for “ONE TWO THREE.” The members have certainly put in a lot of hard work and love into making The Table a success.
NU’EST starts off their latest mini album with “Call Me Back,” an easy-going song that seems to be about a confession of love. Title song “LOVE ME” gives off a happy-go-lucky vibe with catchy keyboard accompaniment and background whistling. “LOVE ME” features smooth choreography while showing reminiscent images of classic cars, retro technology, and space exploration. “ONE TWO THREE” shows influences of funk music as it’s bass guitar and keyboard chord progressions work together to tell a heart-fluttering story. “Trust Me” and “Stay Up All Night” have more serious tones as they begin to wind down the mini-album with a combination of R&B and Pop sounds. “If We” wraps up The Table with a ballad that showcases each of the member’s strong yet smooth vocals.
To provide a space where L.O.Λ.E. can come together and get excited about their new mini-album, NU’EST opened The Table 1021. This exhibition cafe is full of naturally whimsical decorations that will make you easily feel at home. Here, you can write a letter of encouragement to NU’EST while enjoying a refreshing beverage or a small peach pie. Since The Table 1021 is a cafe instead of a concept zone, 1 drink purchase is required during your visit.
The Table 1021 will be open until October 27, 2019. Time spent in the cafe is generally unlimited; however, if the cafe becomes busy, guests may need to have a ticket to enter. Ticketed reservations last fifty minutes and are limited to fifty people per time frame.
