Day6 reveals a trailer film for their comeback "The Book of Us: Negentropy" on April 19, 2021, completing the narrative of their series, "The Book of Us."
The pioneer that popularised bands in K-pop, Day6, is a South Korean rock band under JYP Entertainment. The five-piece band was created masterfully, bringing together five amazing artists who were simply even better together. The line-up of members includes Sungjin, Jae, Young K, Wonpil, and Dowoon.
Today, they're one of the biggest names in K-pop so if you're a My Day (their fans group) waiting for their much-awaited come back or if you don't know them yet, it's time you do!

The group debuted on September 7, 2015, with the EP, The Day, which peaked at No.2 on Billboard's World Album Chart a week following its release. The lead single for this EP was Congratulations and it was an insanely quick hit. Day6 had debuted with one of the hottest songs in the entire year. With a strong pop-rock/alt-rock sound, this wasn't anything that was commonly seen in K-pop. Besides, being from JYP Entertainment, Day6 received full promotional backing that helped them grow right from the start. One can say it was easier because they were simply that good and talented. All the members of Day6 are vocalists and are responsible for playing their own instruments. K-pop hadn't seen a successful band in a very long time and Day6 filled that gap extremely successfully. The addition of rap to rock music worked so wonderfully that they had already found the formula success before even starting. The music video for Congratulations featured actor Choi Woo Sik, now of Parasite and Oscar fame.
I Wait and You Were Beautiful
Day6's next big success came with their 2017 monthly project Every Day6 where they released two songs every month on the sixth along with concerts prior to the song's release, music videos, and four fixed V Live broadcasts. I Wait was even bigger than Congratulations which once more, was outdone by You Were Beautiful. Both these lead singles were perfect representations of rock music that had been transformed by Day6 to create a unique inimitable sound.
I Like You
Day6 dove into a different genre while still adhering to the basics of rock, leaning more towards rock ballads. Once again, Day6 knocked it out of the park even while trying something new. I Like You holds the strange ability to have your head bop while also having tears run down your eyes. One may compare this quality to something like Guns 'N Roses and being able to achieve this within such a short time since their debut is nothing short of an incredible feat.
Day6 finally achieved spell-binding popularity worldwide with Shoot Me. Safe to say that Day6 peaked in their musical career with Shoot Me and the graph has remained consistently steady ever since. Shoot Me was created completely with heavy rock influences and it really defined the genre in the K-pop industry. At a time when cheery summertime idol bops were occupying the charts, Day6's Shoot Me was able to dethrone them easily. The appearance of actress Shin Se Eun in the music video only augmented its appeal.
Sweet Chaos and Zombie
The latest releases by Day6 finally got them their first music show win on July 24, 2019. Sweet Chaos brought back the hype from Shoot Me despite the break. A group that had been loved and adored by millions finally got the validation from music shows after years of hard work. As such, the 2019 release was a special one for fans and the band alike. Despite going on hiatus in 2020, Day6 released The Book of Us: The Demon on May 11. The lead single Zombie debuted at No. 8 on Melon's real-time chart and went up to the No. 1 spot after debuting No. 2 in Bugs. Zombie was the perfect release at a time the world was reeling from a pandemic and millions of fans could finally resonate with a shared universal emotion that was highlighted by Day6.
The Book of Us: Negentropy - Chaos swallowed up in love, completing the narrative of the band's book series "The Book of Us."
This album will be the final version of the book series "The Book of Us" in about two years. Starting with the fifth mini-album The Book of Us: Gravity in July 2019, the third full album The Book of Us: Entropy in October 2019, and the sixth mini-album The Book of Us: The Demon in May 2020.
In August 2020, Day6 (Even of Day), a sub-unit composed of Young K, Wonpil, and Dowoon, released The Book of Us: Gluon- Nothing can tear us apart which gave a touching present to fans.
The upcoming album has high hopes from fans and the general audience as Day6 proves to have the most delicate sensibility with its instrumental performance and unique tone.
Furthermore, The Book of Us: Negentropy will be released on April 19 at 6 pm KST. Relatively, huge attention is paid to the band as they prove themselves with the modifier "believe and listen to Day6." (Article source: HELLOKPOP)#DAY6 #데이식스 #The_Book_of_Us
