Meet Cube’s Ballad Group—ATTA!

It is not unusual for K-Pop to be filled with many girl groups who perform cutesy dance-pop songs. Every year, there are a bunch of new groups who debut in the K-Pop industry. But, what about a ballad girl group? Surely it is not a general phenomenon in the K-Pop scene. Well, meet A Train To Autumn (Korean: 가을로가는기차; or better known as ATTA; Korean: 가기차), a ballad group under Cube Entertainment consisting of four members (Baek Somi, Lee Ah-young, Kim Soo-bin, and Hwang Ji-hyun). They made their official debut on November 5th, 2018, with the release of the track titled “That Season You Were In.” Since they didn’t meet much mainstream success, it was assumed that the group was disbanded as their profile could no longer be found on Cube Entertainment’s website.
