Has it been 2 years since SNSD Girls’ Generation released a Korean studio album? 2 whole years?!
For you SONEs (as the group’s loyal fans are lovingly called) who have been waiting on the edge of your seats, SM Entertainment has announced that their powerhouse K-Pop idol girl group SNSD Girls’ Generation will officially be making a comeback! This would be the girls’ first Korean album since the departure of Jessica Jung in September 2014.
In February this year, SM Entertainment vehemently denied reports about the group’s comeback in May. At that time, a rep for the agency said, “SNSD has been continuously working on preparations, however, the date for a (Korean) comeback has not been finalised.”
This time around, Sports DongA wrote that the girls’ album will be released in May following the release of their 9th Japanese single, “Catch Me If You Can”, which will be released in April. SNSD Girls’ Generation’s upcoming Korean album would also mark their first Korean studio album since “I Got a Boy” (January 2013) and also their first as an 8-member group.
If a Korean comeback is really the case, then we wonder if we’re going to hear new materials from the group next weekend at the Sepang F1 Malaysia Grand Prix after-race concert though!
Who’s excited? :D
