beauty&thebeat is the debut mini-album of yyxy, South Korean girl group LOOΠΔ’s third sub-unit. It was released on May 30, 2018.

The physical album was sold in two versions, a Normal edition and a Limited edition. The Normal edition contains one of three random versions of “love4eva”, each with a different dance break. The Limited version of the physical album contains “love4eva” with a limited version of the dance break.


Each one of the members have their unique identity as a solo artist, and the solo artists gather to form a unit. When the units finally gather, they create a world.

LOOΠΔ 1/3 sang the excitement and expectations of the first love through Love&Live. LOOΠΔ/ODD EYE CIRCLE sang that love is not about waiting, but about stepping forward and taking action through Mix&Match. Finally, LOOΠΔ/yyxy sings about the love of youth so shiny to seem luminous, through ‘beauty&thebeat’. They decide to be truthful to their emotions in the moment, free of worries about what may come tomorrow.

Yves, Chuu, Go Won, and Olivia Hye, the members of LOOΠΔ/yyxy, have talked about their own self-awareness and ego in their solo releases. The ego takes them to admire or even be jealous of someone else, like many girls in their age do. Sometimes the story derives from self-hatred or disappointment. However, they all come to a realization that ego isn’t decided or made by someone else, but is complete by loving oneself.[1]

한 명 한 명의 솔로로서의 정체성을 가지고, 그 솔로들이 모여 유닛을 이룬다. 그리고 유닛이 모일 때 하나의 세상을 만들어 낸다.

이달의 소녀 1/3은 ‘Love&Live’를 통해 첫 사랑의 설렘과 기대를 노래했고 이달의 소녀 오드아이써클은 ‘Mix&Match’를 통해 사랑은 기다리는 것이 아니라 스스로 쟁취하는 것이라고 노래했다. 그리고 이달의 소녀 yyxy는 ‘beauty&thebeat’로 빛이 날만큼 반짝이는 청춘의 사랑에 대해 노래한다. 내일의 걱정 따윈 생각할 수 없을 만큼 오늘 이 순간의 감정에 대해 충실하기로 한다.

이브, , 고원, Olivia Hye가 구성한 이달의 소녀 yyxy는 모두 각자의 솔로 앨범에서 자아에 대해 이야기했다. 그 자아는 또래의 소녀들처럼 누군가를 동경하기도 하고 질투하기도 하며 때론 자신에 대한 혐오 혹은 실망감에서 시작된다. 하지만 이내 자아는 누군가 결정해주거나 만들어주는 것이 아닌 내가 나를 사랑함으로써 내가 만드는 것이라고 깨닫는다.
