About the music::
‘Officially MIssing You’ is their Korean remake of a Tamia song of the same name. The song features Sistar’s Soyu. One of the members had gone through a bad breakup around the time and he wanted to make the song so that person could hear it and know how he felt.
‘어때 (how are you)’ is about finding closure in a break up by saying let’s move on. The song was written as a way of closing the story that started in official missing you. How are you features Harim. They originally wanted ‘Officially Missing you’ to be a free for download song, but their friends kept advising them to make it for purchase, and they eventually did make it for purchase.
