K-Pop fans are in for a treat!
While January was the month of solo releases, with SNSD Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun and miss A’s Suzy making their debut as solo artistes, February will be as equally fun, with a slew of K-Pop groups slated to release new tracks.
From Block B to TWICE, here are 5 idol groups you should be paying attention to this month:
1. Block B – “Yesterday”
After surprising fans with a teaser image last month (January), Block B has confirmed that they will be releasing a new track, “Yesterday”, on the 2nd week of February.
Several South Korean media outlets initially dubbed the track as a fan song, specifically released for the boy group’s upcoming fan meeting, but member Park Kyung, who wrote the song, stepped up to clarify matters.
He said, “It’s a song that I’ve worked hard to create, so I’m upset that it’s being seen as though it’s an event song made just for the fan meeting. Of course, while I was making it I was excited about having our fans listen to it, so it could be seen as a ‘fan song’ in that way, but still! It’s a super exciting song, so I think you can look forward to it!”
Well, we certainly will be listening to the track once it drops on 6th February (Monday) ;)
2. Day6 – “You Were Beautiful”
JYP Entertainment promised fans a release from Day6 for every month in 2017, and so far, they’ve been keeping their promise.
After releasing “I Wait (아 왜)” in January, the band will be meeting fans again with “You Were Beautiful (예뻤어)” this month. It is part of their “Every Day6” plan, and they will also be holding 2 concerts this weekend (4th and 5th February).
The entertainment powerhouse has also given fans a preview of what to expect and the images look dreamy!
Take a look:
“You Were Beautiful” will be released on 6th February (Monday).
3. NCT Dream – “My First And Last”
NCT Dream’s comeback comes on the heel of NCT 127’s comeback in early January with “Limitless”.
NCT’s 3rd sub-unit made their debut with “Chewing Gum” in August, and now, they will be making their 1st comeback with single album “My First And Last”. They have released various teaser images for fans, and it gives off a retro vibe.
However, member Jaemin was visibly missing from the photos. SM Entertainment also informed fans that he’ll be sitting out for this comeback due to his herniated disc, which has been plaguing him since his trainee days.
We’re sure fans are worried, but don’t forget to support his group mates when “My First And Last” is released on 9th February!
4. TWICE – “Knock Knock”
Ahhh, finally a girl group!
K-Pop boy groups are usually more popular in the female-dominated fandoms, but it is not the case with TWICE. Every title track of theirs have been a hit, from their debut track “Like OOH-AHH” to their latest earworm “TT“.
JYP Entertainment has also released a surprise teaser image for TWICE today (Thursday, 2nd February), teasing the release of “Knock Knock”. The track is a continuation of the girl group’s 3rd mini-album, “TWICECoaster: Lane 1” and will be promoted as a special album.
“Knock Knock” will be unveiled on 20th February.
5. BTS – “WINGS: You Never Walk Alone”
They first teased fans during 2016’s Mnet Asian Music Awards with an extremely short teaser, causing fans to go into a frenzy. Shortly after, they confirmed the comeback with a statement, and now, have released the first batch of teaser photos.
It is known that BTS filmed their music video at the end of January in Cheongju, which is located a few hours south of Seoul, but the concept for the video and track are still kept under wraps. However, it has been revealed that the boys actively participated in the lyrics-making, composition, and producing of the new tracks in their upcoming album.
We don’t know when the track will be released, but we’ll update you with the info as soon as we have it!
