Rookie group JJ Project will be making their first impression with their new album ‘Bounce‘ on May 21st, and JYP Entertainment has released the official track list and album cover ahead of their debut!
YG Entertainment recently revealed yet another ‘mystery girl’.
On May 11th, YG Entertainment released a video teaser featuring a potential member of the agency’s upcoming girl group on the YG-Life Blog. The new mystery girl seems to have outstanding dancing skills and, according to reports by media and fans, is rumored to be a 16-year-old half Caucasian and half Korean trainee from Thailand.
With three ‘mystery girls’ in total, including Kim Eunbi and Euna Kim, who were already known to the public through Mnet‘s ‘Superstar K‘, it seems like the members and overall structure of the new upcoming group shows several similarities to 2NE1, who made a powerful and impacting debut into the Korean music industry in 2009.
First, despite her young age of only 17, Kim Eunbi was one of the Top 6 finalists in 2010′s ‘Superstar K2‘. Many are anticipating that she will most likely be the main vocal or the ‘Park Bom‘ of this new group. During the second season of ‘Superstar K’, Eunbi showed her quirky and honest personality that captured the hearts of many male fans, which seems similar to 2NE1 Park Bom’s four-dimensional and dorky personality.
It looks like INFINITE has returned and is ready to go for their latest comeback, as the group has just released the tracklist for their third mini-album, ‘INFINITIZE‘!
After announcing his second solo comeback yesterday, SS501‘s Heo Young Saeng is back with new teaser images!
The countdown for his second mini-album, ‘SOLO‘, has begun with a relese date set for May 22nd. Fans all over the world are already sharing their excitement and anticipation for his return through social network services.
‘SOLO’ has been revealed to be the complete production of Heo Young Saeng himself, having participated in the overall planning process and even its production. He’s looking to step up from an idol to an artist by having his name credited as the co-producer.
His title track, “Crying“, is described to be a medium pop R&B track about a man’s wish for his ex-lover to return.
Earlier, JYP Entertainment had released a new mysterious teaser, informing the public on an upcoming group “JJ Project“. Although many had already assumed JJ to stand for JB and Jr., the details had not been confirmed until now.
After unveiling their new track, “Only Tears“, the boys of INFINITE have now shared a group teaser photo on their official homepage.
YG Entertainment‘s new girl group has been garnering a lot of interest among K-pop fans even before their debut. Every time YG released a new photo of a potential girl group member, the reveals immediately ranked #1 on various portal sites. This has left fans to naturally question when their actual debut will be.
YG has currently revealed 4 potential members so far, with 2 members confirmed for the girl group. Similar to 2NE1‘s debut in 2009, YG has been very careful in the way they release information about the debut of their new artists. The agency has kept their mouth shut on any information concerning the members of the new girl group and their debut, always offering the vague answer of “nothing has been confirmed yet”.
Despite the vague answers and lack of details, there are rumors within the music industry that YG’s new girl group is set to debut in the coming fall around September.
On May 8th insiders in the music industry revealed to Star News, “YG always meticulously prepares and shows their unique marketing strategy before a group’s debut. Just because they revealed some information about the new members does not mean they will publicly reveal this group right away. Producing the perfect song that matches with the new girl group’s style and image will take at least a couple of months. When you look at this from multiple perspectives, there is a great possibility that this new girl group will debut around September. This prediction also takes into account that YG has previously mentioned that the debut of the group will take place within this year.”
