[June 16, 2023] The K-pop global chart-topping seafarers, ATEEZ, have released their 9th mini album ‘THE WORLD EP.2 : OUTLAW’ as the perfect opening of this summer. The EP is out now via Sony Music Korea/RCA Records – click here to listen.
On a journey lasting nearly a year and two months, ATEEZ met with a total of 430,000 fans from Seoul, Japan, U.S., and Europe. Driven by the still-burning heat of the tour in 2023, ATEEZ successfully held another set of encore concerts in Seoul and Japan. The voyage continues, as they prepare to embark on their first Asian and Latin American tour since debut, once again proving their global popularity.
ATEEZ’s 9th mini album ‘THE WORLD EP.2 : OUTLAW’ is an exciting and energetic new episode following ‘THE WORLD EP.1 : MOVEMENT’, which marked the beginnings of a secret movement to cause a fissure in this controlled society.
‘THE WORLD EP.2 : OUTLAW’ contains six tracks – featuring “BOUNCY (K-HOT CHILLI PEPPERS)” as the title song. In “BOUNCY (K-HOT CHILLI PEPPERS),” ATEEZ fly on the music with an unblockable sense of ‘Heung’ (uniquely Korean ‘exhilaration’) that only they can portray. It’s a track that will fully immerse the listener, making their heart race wild alongside the members amidst a scene musically painted out like something straight out of a genre film.
True to ATEEZ style, the released preview video labeled as the album trailer garnered over 3 million views on YouTube (at the time of writing) with comments noting the interesting and puzzling themes portrayed in this trailer.
Amidst their touring success, ATEEZ’s last EP, ‘SPIN OFF : FROM THE WITNESS’ released in December 2022, has been well-loved by fans around the world. The EP set a new record for the group charting on the ‘Billboard 200’ main chart for three weeks and further raising expectations for this new release.

ATEEZ, short for ‘A TEEnager Z,’ is an eight-member South Korean group that has taken the world by storm immediately after their debut in October 2018. Known for standout performances that combine runway aesthetics with darker tones lined by hip-hop and electronic trap mixes, the octet have turned storytelling into a full musical experience. The eight members of ATEEZ are HONGJOONG, SEONGHWA, YUNHO, YEOSANG, SAN, MINGI, WOOYOUNG, and JONGHO. Though the initial meaning of their group name stood for ‘everything teenagers need from A to Z,’ they have since evolved and grown as artists alongside their fans (named ATINY) to become ‘everything you need from A to Z.’ Establishing themselves as top artists early on in their career with a sold-out global tour only four months after their debut, they continue to break their own records. In a unique narrative that starts from the very first release in the ‘TREASURE’ album series and continues through the ‘FEVER’ and ‘THE WORLD’ masterpieces, the group combines bestseller narratives with personalized music that speaks to their generation. ATEEZ has attained the label of a ‘million seller’ group with their 8th EP release of ‘THE WORLD EP.1 : MOVEMENT,’ among other achievements of being nominated and winning titles throughout the years as the ‘Next Generation Act’ and ‘Top Act’ in award ceremonies to placing 3rd on the Billboard 200 Chart.
