OMO! I Think I just FAINTED with excitement!
The SM Entertainment lineup includes TVXQ who are gearing up for their comeback later this month, followed by Girls’ Generation who may release something as soon as this October in Korea. Afterwards, EXO will be releasing their full-length album, but as of now there are no plans for SM to debut a new artist or idol group.
On the other hand, expectations are high for YG Entertainment. Psy is doing well for himself, representing YG overseas, while G-Dragon has a firm hold on the Korean market. G-Dragon swept the charts with the 19+ single “That XX“, and is looking to release a mini-album on September 15th. In addition, 2NE1‘s new full-length album which got delayed because of their World Tour will also be released this October.
YG will also be releasing SuPearls from SBS ‘K-Pop Star‘ as well as a new girl group being dubbed ‘YG’s Girls’ Generation’. The girl group is determined to fill the relatively weak aspects of girl groups out there today, and have drawn attention since early this year.
