Red Velvet received a warm greeting as they sit down at the November 20 broadcast of SBS Radio Power FM's "Lee Kuk Ju's Young Street". The girls talked about their comeback with their spirited and bewildering track "Peek-A-Boo".

According to All Kpop, the group wanted to portray a mysterious vibe for the music video of "Peek-A-Boo". Joy shared how she recorded her own laugh a number of times to perfect the peculiar vibe of the track, however, the actual MV featured the voice taken from the original demo instead.

The girls revealed, "We worked hard to portray a mature and advanced image." They also added, "We wanted to present something new and show a different side of us." The girls succeeded in buzzing the internet shown by the volume of reactions and theories formulated by their fans.

Red Velvet is a South Korean girl group raised by S.M. Entertainment. Consisting of four endearing members, Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, and Joy, the group debuted on August 1, 2014, with their digital single "Happiness". Yeri joined the group as a fifth member and a lucky charm to the team in March 2015.

The entertainment world warmly welcomed Red Velvet as their first EP, "Ice Cream Cake" climbed to the top of Gaon Album Chart in 2015. Furthermore, their first full-length album, "The Red", also hit the number one spot on the same chart.

It did not take long for them to be on television screens as Red Velvet's Irene and Yeri became hosts of well-known South Korean TV programs. On the other hand, Joy landed as the lead character in the drama "The Liar and His Lover" while Seulgi appeared on "Idol Drama Operation Team". Wendy also grabbed a short-time gig as a host of KBS World's K-Rush.

Earlier this year, Red Velvet dropped their fourth mini-album, "Rookie", with six sweet tracks. The album reached the top of "Billboard World Albums Chart" and "Weekly Gaon Album Chart". The girls also geared up for their first solo concert titled "Red Room" on August 18-20.

Triumph just keeps on coming to Red Velvet as they released their second full-length album, "Perfect Velvet", in November 2017. The creative girl group continues to conquer as they come back with a bolder and trickier image.
