Ready for another YG Entertainment artiste to drop new music?
The South Korean entertainment powerhouse just released a mysterious “Who’s Next” teaser on their Facebook page moments ago. As per usual, the poster reveals nothing except a date – 1st December 2016 – and a vague image that is perhaps an indication of which artiste to expect.
VIPs are quickly speculating that it’s BIGBANG (빅뱅) while Blackjacks are hopeful that it’s 2NE1, judging from the 3 light bulbs featured in the above image. 2NE1 leader CL (이채린) just wrapped up her “Hello Bitches” tour in the US so it’s not entirely impossible that the K-Pop idol girl group is gearing up for a long delayed comeback.
That having said, there are also 3 members in YG’s hip hop group, Epik High, and we haven’t heard from them since the release of “Shoebox” in 2014.
Let’s not forget K-Pop’s “monster rookie” group BLACKPINK, which was previously said to be planning on releasing songs for 5 consecutive months following their debut. On 1st November, the girls made waves again with the release of “Stay” and “Playing With Fire“. Could there be more in the pipeline for 1st December?
Meanwhile, a YG Entertainment rep recently revealed that BIGBANG and Sechskies are scheduled to make their respective comebacks before the year ends. The rep was quoted as saying, “BIGBANG and Sechskies are making a comeback at the end of the year. For both teams, it won’t be after mid-December.”
Furthermore, BIGBANG rapper T.O.P (Choi Seung Hyun; 최승현) is expected to enlist in the military within the next 3 months, which could explain the need for the group to rush their comeback. Leader G-Dragon and fellow member Taeyang have also dropped less than inconspicuous hints on their socials that they’re working on their new music video. Coupled with the fact that their “MADE” album is more than a year overdue, it could be BIGBANG after all, but if YG’s reputation is anything to go by, we can’t be 100% sure.
We’ll update this post with more information as soon as we have ’em details!
