MOMOLAND To Drop Ballad Song Next Week Ahead Of Group's Global Promotions
Korean girl group MOMOLAND is preparing to release a ballad song next week ahead of the global promotions of their new album Show Me. However, the song only includes seven members of the band.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that members Taeha and Daisy will not participating in the new song. The two also did not join their group in their most recent comeback promotions due to health and personal reasons. MLD Entertainment did not elaborate much on its statement but assured that Taeha and Daisy will return for the release of the group's next album.
"It was judged that it would be best if MOMOLAND members Taeha and Daisy take a break from this album due to health and personal reasons, so this upcoming comeback will be made with seven members. The two members will return for the release of the next album," MLD said in a statement back in March.
MOMOLAND is slated to kick off their Japanese promotions on May 10 but with only seven members: Hyebin, Yeonwoo, Jane, Nayun, JooE, Ahin, and Nancy. The group will be visiting the United States, South America, Canada, and Taiwan.
