SM Entertainment is on a roll.
After BoA, SHINee, and EXO‘s successful and high profile comebacks, another SM Entertainment’s idol group, Girls’ Generation, will be making a return to the Korean music scene. Star News reported that the top girl group will be releasing a new album later this month or latest by next month.
Multiple websites reported that the popular girl group was supposed to release a new album last May, but the month came and go without news. They then cited unforeseen circumstances as the reason for the delay. The exact date of their comeback hasn’t been decided yet, but SM Entertainment confirmed that they will be having their comeback soon.
SM Entertainment stated:
Girls’ Generation are preparing for their new album. But we still haven’t decided on a specific comeback date yet.
It has also been revealed that the 8-membered Korean girl group has been “working hard” on the new album, and are currently doing their best to produce a high-quality album for fans. Girls’ Generation impending comeback will also mean that they will go head-to-head with YG Entertainment‘s beloved boy group, BIGBANG, who will be releasing 2 more singles from their “MADE” album on 1st July.
This will be Girls’ Generation’s 1st Korean comeback without ex-member Jessica. The multilingual artiste, who is commonly known as “ice princess” to fans, claimed that she was kicked out of the girl group by SM Entertainment on a Weibo post dated 3oth September 2014.
SM Entertainment responded by confirming the news, and also stated that she was dismissed from the group due to constant conflicts between her personal and group schedule. Jessica has since been developing her fashion label BLANC & ECLARE and recently talked about it in an interview with Marie Claire Korea.
