The LOOΠΔVERSE is the fictional universe the members of LOONA live in. It is depicted through their music videos and teasers. Its existence was officially announced on April 26, 2017, but was given its name on May 22 of the same year.
Since the lore of the LOONAVERSE can be interpreted in many different ways, many Orbits have begun to theorize what the music videos entail, and how each member's story intertwines with each other. This part of the article covers the biggest and most popular theories on the LOONA music videos and the timeline of events in the LOONAVERSE.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The LOONAVERSE is a universe that exists on a möbius strip. The members of LOONA 1/3 reside on earth and portray realistic girls that can be found on streets or at schools. ODD EYE CIRCLE lives between earth and space, aka the middle earth. They display changing and mutative characteristics while suggesting love should be taken control of instead of being passive. Lastly, yyxy inhabit a 'utopia', known as 'Edenism', beyond earth and the middle earth. They decide to escape their 'Eden' in order to discover themselves.

Timeline[edit | edit source]
There is no official timeline of the LOONAVERSE that Blockberry Creative has confirmed, but instead we are given clues through member reveals, music videos, and teasers about the sequence of events in this world. Many different people have begun to theorize what events in the LOONAVERSE impacted what, and how every bit of lore fits together.
By far the most popular timeline is according to the order in which music videos and members were revealed. ("There are no simultaneous happenings. Aside from the two Carols, everything is happening like a domino effect. When one thing happens it triggers another addition to the LOONAVERSE.")
ViViD → Around You → I'll Be There → Let Me In → The Carol → Kiss Later → Love & Live → Everyday I Love You → Sonatine → Everyday I Love You → ViVi's Letter to Hong Kong → Sweet Crazy Love → Eclipse → Singing in the Rain → Love Cherry Motion → "Reveal" Teaser → Girl Front → LOONATIC → Love & Live Remix → Starlight VCR → New → Heart Attack → See Saw → One & Only → Egoist → Love4eva → ONE (Cinema Theory Busan)
Videos Analysis[edit | edit source]
The analysis of the LOONAVERSE is possible with the interpretation of music videos, teasers and other videos released in events such as LOONA Cinema Theory: Up & Line.
Characters[edit | edit source]
Each member of LOONA plays a character in the LOONAVERSE by the same name. These are descriptions of each member and how they impact the LOONAVERSE based on the internet's most popular LOONAVERSE theorists.
Sub-Units Roles[edit | edit source]
Three units were revealed so far.
Locations[edit | edit source]

Other Lore[edit | edit source]
There's always more to explore outside of the music videos and members of LOONA. In these articles we will be exploring the inner workings of the LOONAVERSE and the information Blockberry Creative gives us about the secrets of this world.
Future Predictions[edit | edit source]
In an interview with DAZED, JinSoul stated "I can tell you that this is not the end, rather just a beginning. There could be a new unit with different combinations, for example, HyunJin and I could be a new unit." This simple statement sheds a light on how the LOONAVERSE works and as a whole, the future of LOONA. As mentioned in Cultural References this suggests the idea of reincarnation, where people or creatures are born again once they die. Their body stays on earth but their spirit or soul is given to a new creature until that organism dies, in a continuous cycle.
With the idea of the LOONAbirth we could end up seeing a "LOONAdeath" and then a rebirth or a reincarnation of the LOONA members into new subunits, new roles, new colors, and new animals. The LOONA we see now could look very different in a year's time. We could currently be in "Phase 1" of LOONA, with future phases and versions of LOONA to come.
