Ateez to release Japanese single 'Not Okay,' hold fan showcase


Boy band Ateez will release its third Japanese single "Not Okay" on Feb. 28 and hold a showcase for fans the next day.

"Not Okay" comes as the band's first new music in Japan in almost a year, after its second single "Limitless" in March 2023. A showcase will be held on Feb. 29, but other details were not disclosed.

Ateez made its Japanese debut with "Treasure Ep. Extra: Shift The Map" in December 2019 and has since released three EPs, two singles and one full-length album.

The band topped Japan's Oricon Charts with its third EP "The World Ep. Paradigm" (2022) as well as the Hot Album and Top Album Sales charts of Billboard Japan.

Ateez is set to begin its "Towards the Light: Will to Power" world tour with two performances in Seoul on Jan. 27 and 28. It will hold two concerts at the Saitama Super Arena on Feb. 3 and 4.
