This year is set to be another amazing year for K-Pop lovers because some of the biggest and hottest idol groups are gearing up to make their long-awaited comeback. Just recently, it was revealed that BIGBANG will be making a triumphant return with a new album in April while JYJ‘s Junsu just released a bunch of teaser images for his upcoming comeback in March.
The group was previously rumoured to make a comeback on 25th Oct but the plan eventually fell apart due to Luhan‘s lawsuit against the company. Korean media outlet Sports Donga later exclusively reported that the group will make their comeback in January 2015. In December 2014, the group officially announced their comeback through their performances at 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA). However, no details regarding the comeback were announced.
After touring around the world for their 1st solo concert tour “The Lost Planet” in 2014, SM Entertainment announced that EXO will hold their 2nd solo concert in Seoul next month. Now it seems like the group will be performing some new songs at the concert because the group is set to make a comeback in March as well.
The comeback was announced by Lay of EXO-M during an interview with CCTV‘s Spring Festival earlier this week. He was one of the MCs of CCTV’s Spring Festival web gala. The network updated their official Weibo account and revealed Lay has confirmed that the group will be making their comeback this coming March.
It would mark EXO’s first comeback in 10 months after the release of their 2nd mini album “Overdose”. It is also the group’s first comeback without the 2 of its original members so fans are curious to find out what the group has prepared for them.
UPDATE (12th March, 11:19AM):
The wait is over, EXO-Ls. EXO’s comeback date has finally been confirmed!
According to Korean media outlet Sports Donga, EXO is expected to make a comeback on 30th March. SM Entertainment has yet to respond to the report, but Sports Donga reported that various idol groups have already started moving their comeback to a much later date. A former idol singer is said to have pushed back his comeback date from the end of March to May. Another experienced singer is also thinking to delay his April comeback.
Meanwhile, the group has revealed several new songs from their upcoming album at their recent solo concert. Suho of EXO-K also announced that the group will be making a comeback with a title track named “Call Me Baby”.
