S. KOREA - The playful members of Crayon Pop are leaving their signature helmets behind and returning with a new dance and their fifth single "Uh-ee."

Crayon Pop, which shot to stardom thanks to the surprise hit single "Bar Bar Bar" and the trademark "straight-five engine dance," unveiled its latest single at a showcase held at the Olleh Square in central Seoul on Friday. The ladies sauntered out onto the stage dressed like a pack of little red riding hoods and revealed that their latest costumes concept was actually inspired by hanbok - the Korean traditional costume.

"We really had tons of meetings at our agency to come up with our next costume concept for our latest single," said Cho-a during the showcase. "During the last New Year holiday we all took pictures in our hanbok and we realised if it was modified a bit it could actually be quite comfortable to wear around all the time ... so that was our inspiration."

Decked out in red head scarves and gomusin - traditional rubber hanbok shoes - Crayon Pop revealed the upbeat, ajumma-style choreography for "Uh-ee," which still very much showcases the group's signature silly pop look and sound.

The digital single and music video for "Uh-ee" will officially be released on Tuesday. Crayon Pop will then head overseas this summer after receiving a personal request from "Mother Monster" herself, Lady Gaga, to be the opening act for her upcoming series of concerts in the US and Canada.
