It has begun. In March, Korean media outlet Sports DongA revealed that SNSD Girl’s Generation will be kicking off their 10th anniversary special project with solo releases from Hyoyeon and Yoona.
Today (Thursday, 18th May), SM Entertainment confirmed that Hyoyeon is currently preparing for her solo comeback. If the rumours are true, it means that we’ll soon see the girl group make a comeback!
The dancer was rumoured to be releasing new music as a solo artiste by various industry insiders. According to them, she is currently in the final stages of preparation and will drop a new song in early June. The track will be “centered around the performance aspect” and Hyoyeon has been said to be “working very hard to show a new image”.
This was verified by her label, who released a simple statement saying, “Hyoyeon is currently preparing for her solo and it is planned to be released in June.”
A photo of her in the recording studio was also posted on her Instagram last week, and fans are taking it as confirmation from the SNSD member.
Hyoyeon made her debut in 2007 with SNSD and is known as the most powerful dancer of the group. She then dropped her debut solo track, “Mystery“, in December last year as part of SM Entertainment’s digital project, SM Station.
