We see you what you did there, SM Entertainment ;)
For the past few months, the talent agency successfully set the Korean music scene abuzz through their artistes that made their debuts as solo singers. These solo singers have received much recognition from the public and have changed perceptions towards their singing abilities.
After years of performing as a member of Girls’ Generation and its subunit TaeTiSeo, Taeyeon is finally getting a chance to shine solo on stage as well. In fact, she will be the first Girls’ Generation’s member to debut as a solo singer.
Best known for her stunning singing abilities, Taeyeon is said to be in the midst of preparing for her solo album. According to Korean media outlet Sports Donga, the vocalist aims to make her solo debut in the first half of the year and is currently recording songs to be included in the album.
SM Entertainment has yet to release an official statement but if the report is true, Taeyeon will be the latest SM artiste to debut as a solo singer after SHINee’s Taemin and Jonghyun, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, as well as Super Junior-M’s Henry and Zhoumi. f(x)’s Amber is also expected to release a solo album in the coming week.
Similar to Amber, Taeyeon’s solo debut is highly anticipated as she is one of the most powerful vocalists in the group. While performing as part of TaeTiSeo, she received rave reviews from the public through the release of various drama OSTs.
