The rookie idols are not the only ones making waves in the K-pop music scene.
7-year-old idol group B2ST is all geared up for their comeback, and now, SNSD Girls’ Generation’s leader Taeyeon will finally be making her comeback with solo album “Why”. SM Entertainment revealed the news by releasing a teaser photo of the singer.
In the photo, Taeyeon can be seen basking under the sun in a blue convertible, with windmills surrounding her. The vocalist also unveiled another teaser on her Instagram, thought to be the logo for her upcoming album.
Not much details have been released regarding the album, but SM Entertainment has confirmed that it will drop on 28th June. Fans can look forward to a bright and lively concept for the music video.
UPDATE (20th June, 4pm):
SM Entertainment has released a few more teaser images in anticipation of Taeyeon’s upcoming comeback. The singer also took the chance to tease fans by posting a few unseen photos on her Instagram.
7 songs will be included in her mini album and the title track is said to be a mix of R&B and EDM with a “trendy beat that has a tropical house feel” to it.

Taeyeon made her solo debut in October 2015 with the album “I” which featured the title track of the same name. In February this year, she then released “Rain” and “Secret” to kickstart SM Entertainment’s digital music channel project, SM Station.
However, even before her solo debut, Taeyeon was already a successful solo vocalist in South Korea, garnering attention for her various dramas and movies soundtracks. Her most notable releases were “And One”, the original soundtrack to “That Winter, The Wind Blows”, and “Closer”, which was played in “To The Beautiful You”.
