The Wind debuted in May 2023 with their first mini album Beginning : The Wind Page. They also released their first single album The Wind : Summer Vacation in August 2023. The news is even more sad for their fans as Shin Jaewon was included in the group’s Season’s Greetings video released just one week ago.
