On August 20, 2017, FNC Entertainment revealed a teaser for a new eleven-member girl group that is to be revealed on August 22. On August 21, the first member Yuju was revealed with the date "2017.08.23 00AM" in the caption, this was followed by the second member Jiwon on October 22. Following Jiwon's reveal, no new members were revealed in the following days and no updates were given on the situation until over a month later, on October 3, the third member Bora was revealed. However, yet again, no further news about the group was released after Bora's reveal, hence it was presumed that FNC Entertainment had either delayed or cancelled the group debut.
