The 4-member group composed of Yoon, Mino, Hoony, and Jinu made their 2018 comeback last April 4, when they came out with their second studio album, Everyd4y

They have been actively promoting in Korea since then, appearing in music and variety shows, and performing at university festivals. Here’s the music video of their title track, “Everyday.”

WINNER made their debut in 2014 as a 5-member group under YG Entertainment, the same agency of K-pop groups Big Bang, 2NE1, and iKON. Member Nam Tae-hyun left the group in 2016. – Rappler.com
