Page 15: Runners-up in Mnet’s Survival program "QUEENDOM 2"!!

Messages of thanks from the members to the Orbits who supported their activities!!

Heejin My mind is clear after Queendom 2 has ended. But sometimes I feel regretful, and go back to watch our Queendom 2 performances (lol).

Hyunjin We were able to leave good results and end Queendom 2 with no problems thanks to so many Orbits taking an interest and supporting us! I want to always convey our genuine thanks. I love you Orbit! Orbits are the best.

Haseul I’m thankful that I was really able to learn a lot and lots of people had the opportunity to get to know us through Queendom 2. And it seems like the message I had wanted to convey through our performance was able to reach Orbits through Queendom 2. During the filming of Queendom 2, there were things that hit deeply and I was happy.

Yeojin Since I was able to see and learn a lot through participating in Queendom 2, I will do my best to show an even better performance to Orbits!!

Vivi Being able to meet more Orbits than before through Queendom 2 was both delightful and strange. Thank you for sending so much love and support.

Kim Lip Orbits! Thank you very much for loving Queendom 2 until now. It was a deeply emotional time where I could get to know the members as well as Orbits’ love. I am always thankful (to you). I love you.

Jinsoul Because we challenged various concepts while taking the members’ opinions and preparing each and every stage, it was a more precious and happy time. Because it was a survival battle, there was pressure and worries, but it was a program where I could experience a lot and learn from.

Choerry Through Queendom 2, I could experience many things, and as LOONA’s Choerry, it was a trigger towards further growth, so it was a very meaningful time. More than anything, it was interesting to watch.

Yves Since we would be appearing as a group on a survival program, there were more worries compared to being nervous, but I think it’s because of all the love Orbits gave us each time that we were able to come 2nd place. We’ll continue to show you good performances from now on, so please be with us forever like you are now.

Chuu I think I was able to grow a lot through Queendom 2. To LOONA’s Chuu, Kim Jiwoo, as well as to Orbits, thank you for loving and supporting our performances. It was fun. (T/N: Her message is translated as is. After consulting other Japanese speakers, we suspect there was some nuance lost in translation and/or an incorrect interpretation on Orbit Japan’s side.)

Go Won I was able to learn a lot through Queendom 2, and it was good to be able to show such a variety of performances. I think we were able to show a lot of new sides to us!

Olivia Hye During our appearance on Queendom 2, it was fun being able to do a variety of performances, and it was a time of growth. Using this experience as a foundation, I will show an even greater side of me from now on.


Pages 16-17: Private Photo Release

Disclosing private photos that the members took

We’ll only show Orbits!!

Heejin: Where will we be flying to today~?!

Hyunjin: It’s a blessing to be able to see such good scenery and eat good food while touring. Being able to have such a blessed experience is thanks to Orbits. I always want to convey my thanks and love to Orbits. Thank you so much Orbits. I love you. Orbits are the best! For all the happiness I get from Orbits, I want to return it 2 fold, no, 3 fold! I’ll always show my cool self!

Haseul: Meat is tasty as expected. Nom nom.

Yeojin: A place where the wind felt really good♡

Vivi: I got sunburnt in America, but it was still a great time!

Kim Lip: Tasty. Fun.

Jinsoul: I’m in the middle of the American tour! I’ll leave unforgettable memories.

Choerry: Orbit! How is everyone doing? Lately I’ve been happy being able to go around touring and meeting Orbit living far away. I always love you Orbit ♡

Yves: It’s mysterious how it seems like you can reach the clouds.

Go Won: A fun American tour! I’m spending every single day happily together with Orbits~♡

Olivia Hye: Food and weather that I like.


Pages 18-19: We asked LOONA!! Who is the most 〇〇 member?

To LOONA, whose bonds between the members were further deepened on the American tour, we asked “Who is the most 〇〇 member?”; things like “Who is the most spoiled?”, “Who takes care of the others best?”! Answers that give a glimpse into the members’ relationships have arrived!


Which member takes care of others the best?

Heejin: Vivi unnie. When I’m sick/hurt or having a hard time, she’ll be there like a mother.

Hyunjin: Go Won. Before you even realize it, she’s taking care of you.

Haseul: Olivia Hye. If I were to get hurt, Hyeju would be silently taking care of me, and Yves would be taking care of me nearby.

Yeojin: Vivi unnie. Because she always looks out for me and takes care of me!!

Vivi: Jinsoul. Because she’s well-informed.

Kim Lip: Yves unnie. When I’m feeling down, Yves unnie would often cheer me up.

Jinsoul: Haseul. She nags, but she’ll take good care of you.

Choerry: Jinsoul unnie. Because Jinsoul unnie may look cold, but when you’re sick/hurt or having a hard time, she’ll be the first to worry about you.

Yves: Olivia Hye. She’s wary of her surroundings and will look out for you.

Go Won: Haseul. She quickly notices when members are hurt somewhere or when something didn’t go well, and will be by your side to support you.

Olivia Hye: Me. Because everyone leaves their stuff lying around and just walks away.


Who is the most spoiled out of all the members?

Heejin: Mm…me…? I’ve been told by the members that I whine the most lololol

Hyunjin: Heejin. She whines.

Haseul: Heejin. She becomes spoiled in front of the unnies.

Yeojin: Me. There’s no particular reason, but I think I am good at being spoiled.

Vivi: Yeojin. She’s the youngest, so she’s good at aegyo.

Kim Lip: Heejin. She’s just simply spoiled.

Jinsoul: Heejin. She’s surprisingly spoiled.

Choerry: Yeojin. For Yeojin, rather than being spoiled, she just has a lot of aegyo in her daily life.

Yves: Kim Lip. She talks to herself a lot.

Go Won: Yeojin. Maybe it’s because she’s the youngest, but she does a lot of aegyo to her unnies and gets spoiled.

Olivia Hye: Yeojin. Maybe it’s because she has a lot of unnies, but she still thinks she’s a child.


Which member would eat your cooking most deliciously?

Heejin: Hyunjin. Because she ate a lot of the cheesecake I had made before.

Hyunjin: Heejin. Because I remember from our trainee days, she ate kimchi jjigae (T/N: kimchi stew) deliciously.

Haseul: Choerry. Because she is always laughing with the members.

Yeojin: Heejin unnie. Because she’s said before that she wanted to eat the ramen that I made.

Vivi: Yeojin. Because she really eats well.

Kim Lip: Heejin. Because she also ate my portion of some bad-tasting food before.

Jinsoul: Hyunjin. Because she’s not so picky with her food.

Choerry: Yves unnie. Even if I were to make something that tastes bad, she seems like she would compliment me for doing a good job.

Yves: Go Won. She eats anything I make.

Go Won: Yves. Yves unnie is caring, so even if it were to taste bad, she seems like she would say it’s OK.

Olivia Hye: Yves. If it’s (Yves) unnie, she seems like she would eat it and be thankful of having food being made for her.


If you were to go to an uninhabited island together, which member could you most depend on?

Heejin: Hyunjin. She seems like she could survive on an uninhabited island like Kim Byung-man.

Hyunjin: Yeojin. Because she is a calm person.

Haseul: Yves. Because she’s a member that gives me strength when things get tough and I feel like giving up.

Yeojin: Choerry unnie. She seems like she could get through it with her positivity!

Vivi: Hyunjin. Because she’s got physical strength.

Kim Lip: Hyunjin. She seems like she could just survive.

Jinsoul: Olivia Hye. If I were to get worried, she seems like she would calm me down.

Choerry: Olivia Hye. I think she would catch bugs for me and somehow help me survive.

Yves: Olivia Hye. She seems like she would catch all the bugs for me.

Go Won: Olivia Hye. She’s not scared of anything, so it would be easy to get through (the uninhabited island) if we were together.

Olivia Hye: Go Won. Unnie unexpectedly can do anything. She’s also a composed person, so you can depend on her.


If you were to change for a day, which member would you want to be?

Heejin: Lately I’ve been thinking that I myself would be a good choice. It’s not bad to live like me; I’m enjoying life well enough lololol.

Hyunjin: Yves unnie. She seems flexible.

Haseul: Jinsoul. I want to be taller.

Yeojin: Olivia Hye unnie. Though I’m a troublesome person, Unnie is able to do anything by herself efficiently, so I want to be able to do things efficiently like her.

Vivi: Choerry. Because she’s overflowing with positive energy.

Kim Lip: Me. I like me.

Jinsoul: Jinsoul. I don’t want to change!

Choerry: Yves unnie, Olivia Hye. Because I’d like to be just a little bit taller, and Yves unnie and Olivia Hye’s height is my goal!

Yves: Yeojin. I want to see the world from a lower viewpoint.

Go Won: Choerry. Because no matter how bright the sun is, she can keep her eyes open and always take cute photos.

Olivia Hye: Kim Lip. I’m curious about a diligent lifestyle.


The member you want to go shopping together with is?

Heejin: Lip unnie. Unnie would teach me how not to waste money. But my feet would hurt a little.

Hyunjin: Lip unnie. Because we both like NIKE Jordan sneakers.

Haseul: Yeojin. Because she would probably only buy what’s necessary.

Yeojin: Haseul unnie. Because we would probably go shopping early (in the day), quickly finish and come back home.

Vivi: Chuu. She seems like she could give lots of advice.

Kim Lip: Yves. Our taste in clothes are similar.

Jinsoul: Go Won. Our hobbies match the most, and we know each others’ tastes.

Choerry: Heejin. Because if we were to go out together, she seems like she would know not only the good places to shop, but also the good restaurants to eat at, and we would go to lots of good restaurants.

Yves: Go Won. It’d be good to relax.

Go Won: Jinsoul. Our tastes are similar, and she’s one to bluntly say if something doesn’t look good, so we’d be able to do some sensible shopping.

Olivia Hye: Choerry. The two of us would probably immediately see something (, buy it) and leave the store.
