Golden Child Discuss Their New Single 'Replay,' Their AURA Mini-Album and Their Recent U.S. Tour

There truly never has been a better time to be a fan of K-pop group Golden Child.

Earlier this month, the group dropped their bold sixth mini-album, AURA, as well as the explosive lead track "Replay" and its unforgettable music video. They also recently wrapped their Meet & Live Tour across the United States, meeting their American fans for the very first time. We got the chance to chat with the band to find out all about their music, their tour and their growth so far, and here's what they shared with us.

Sweety High: What does the song "Replay" mean to the group?

Jangjun: As the title says, it means to replay the times when Golden Child was full of passion.


SH: What was the concept for the music video for "Replay"? How did you work to bring it to life?

Y: It contains a meaning of leading the members trapped in the unfortunate past to the happy past and moving forward. We work to get through the tough times, and the entire background theme of the music video is prison.

SH: How does "Replay" fit into the wider story of AURA?

TAG: As the title speaks for itself, the song was titled "Replay" with the desire to go back to those happy times in the past, and this album contains the unique AURA that Golden Child has never shown!
