I’m always excited to go through K-pop album packaging despite not actually listening to much K-pop. It’s a nice learning experience to see how designers and creative directors curate and put together albums for artists. This time around, I critiqued WayV’s Take Over the Moon mini album. To be clear they are a mando-pop group that is owned by the Korean entertainment company, SM Entertainment who manages many K-pop idol groups.
Music wise, this was their second mini album and I think it was a good development from Take Off. Their newest full album, Awaken the World, in which I will critique at another time, really set the tone and established their name as a newer group.
This was a fun experience because I absolutely loved the album design of Take Over the Moon. Through my translation of the Chinese graphics in this album, I hope people can have a better understanding of the thought the creative had put into it.
