Choa, 24, told reporters that the forthcoming album’s concept is cat women and the group turned to Broadway for some musical and feline inspiration.

Choa further revealed of their inspiration, “AOA is a transforming group. We constantly think about and research what the public wants to see. It is the result that came out from constantly changing based on the public’s taste.”
