The journey of ARTBEAT v has been one marked by resilience and growth. Since their inception as ARTBEAT, the group has gone through several transformations.

The year 2023 saw more changes for the group, as they embraced transformation once again. With the release of the digital single “Aphrodite” on February 8, ARTBEAT v showcased their ability to seamlessly transition between different musical styles, captivating listeners with their versatility.
However, change wasn’t limited to their musical direction. ARTBEAT v underwent a significant rebranding, evolving into ARTBEAT v and making it clear that they were ready to conquer new horizons with a refreshed identity. Sadly, the group’s journey took another turn with the departure of Damhee, who announced her decision to leave the group on May 22. Despite this, the group’s members and fans demonstrated their unwavering support for Damhee’s future endeavors. With the release of “Dubi Dubi,” ARTBEAT v has proven that their journey is one defined by resilience, growth, and unyielding passion for their craft.
