After the silence since their "New Moon" teaser at the tail-end of 2020, South Korea girl group LOOПΔ 이달의 소녀 has released the first teaser image for their upcoming 4th Mini Album, titled "[&]" - pronounced "AND" (in context of their earlier albums "[++]", "[XX]", "[#]"). Release is scheduled for June 28th at 6pm KST. "A deo vocatus rite paratus"!
We now have nearly one month's worth of teasers and waiting ... SO EXCITING OMFG!
Below screen grab of their Instagram @loonatheworld, because I need more... but I will be patient, I will continue with my "INTRODUCING LOONA" serial feature leading up to D-Day... did I say I was EXCITED?

UPDATED: The visual shows what looks to be a curved archway, which we have seen before in their previously released music videos ... Here are some screengrabs that I obviously went overboard on taking LOL :p
The archway iconology has been seen before in LOONA music videos, specifically for Go Won's scenes - which happens to be (have become) the main feature in her "ONE&ONLY" music video (Screengrabs ABOVE / WATCH MV HERE), and very subtly in her scenes in "So What" MV (screengrabs BELOW / WATCH MV HERE) & I've posted the "To all LOOΠΔs around the world"-clip below too...
"All the world's a stage" ... and we are just here to be enthralled by LOONA...!
By the time we watch the "WHY NOT?" Music Video, Go Won has since ascended to the skies (along with Kim-Lip, actually), and as well seen in the "NEW MOON" Teaser, and what seems to have created a furore in the clouds (screengrabs below) ... will she be the protagonist in the [&] comeback? And what does Yves and Chuu have to do with anything? I guess we'll see /speculate more, for when the styling reveals for the yyxy girls are revealed, leading up to their comeback on June 28th... and no, I've not forgotten about Olivia Hye... :p
ADDED: If for any reason you do not want to purchase their album via regular source(s), or for when availability is scarce (if you happen to find this blog-feature "later" after stock is depleted :p), the following are listings on Amazon (with a noticeable price difference FYI), for your considerations, cheers.
