BackgroundEdit

The title is a play on words meaning "New Blood Type": A, B and O are blood types, and if the letters are said in succession, it sounds like "ye-bbi-oh" ("예삐오").

PromotionsEdit

The title track from the EP, "Nu ABO", was chosen as the lead single. "Mr. Boogie" was re-released as a digital single on July 17, 2010 for follow-up promotions. Live performances of both "NU ABO" and "Mr Boogie" were broadcast on various local music shows Music Bank, Show! Music Core and Inkigayo during the promotional cycle. "ME+U" was also performed during the 2010 Dream Concert and on Wave K with its own choreography. A remix version of "Ice Cream" by Idiotape was also released on March 27, 2013.[1] The title track was also used for the Korean-American film Make Your Move (2013), and was subsequently included on its soundtrack.[2]
