Girl group Laboum launches campaign to boost troop morale

SEOUL, June 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korean girl group Laboum on Wednesday launched a month-long campaign to help boost troop morale in the country's frontline Army units through performances, autograph sessions and other events, Seoul's Ministry of National Defense said.

The six-member group kicked off its campaign in the morning by paying its respects to fallen soldiers and other deceased patriots who have been laid to rest at the Seoul National Cemetery in southern Seoul.

Later in the day, the group visited a border unit in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province and held autograph and photo sessions with soldiers at the unit.

Throughout this month, Laboum is scheduled to visit a total of 15 frontline military installations in Paju and Yeoncheon in Gyeonggi Province, and Cheolwon, Hwacheon and Goseong in Gangwon Province.

The morale-boosting campaign was initiated as tensions remain high around the heavily fortified border with Pyongyang sticking to its nuclear program and Seoul cranking up pressure on its northern neighbor to move towards denuclearization.

Laboum, which means "party" in French, released its debut single album "Petit Macaron" in August 2014 after the release of its music video for title track "Pit-A-Pat." Since then, it has gained popularity in the country's entertainment arena.

In April, the group released its fourth single album "Fresh Adventure."

The group consists of Yujeong, Soyeon, ZN, Haein, Solbin and Yulhee.
