on the 1st, modhouse opened the official sns account of ‘artms’ at 0 o’clock and posted an official image announcing the start of the project, attracting explosive attention.
the image contains a meaningful phrase, “we are going together, towards the moon and beyond,” and a description saying, “a story of girls with amazing strategies and plans to go to the moon. heejin, kim lip, jinsoul, and choerry are starting.” this stimulated fans’ curiosity.
‘artms’ is derived from the greek mythology goddess of the moon, artemis. it is also in line with nasa’s new moon exploration project. in particular, nasa’s project is also an interesting aspect as it attempts to lure four members into manned moon exploration.
