One of the most anticipated comebacks is almost finally here. After wishing, expecting, and waiting for so long, BLACKPINK is finally getting their first full album, The Album! They’re coming back on October 2nd with an 8-track long album, including their already released hits ‘How You Like That’ and ‘Ice Cream’ featuring Selena Gomez. The tracklist also revealed that a song featured Cardi B and that Jennie and Jisoo participated in the writing process of the main title track, ‘Lovesick Girls.’ Knowing how good the first two songs were and seeing how captivating and gorgeous the teasers were, the expectations are high, and we’re confident they won’t disappoint. It seems like this time, BLACKPINK is not holding back and are ready to give us everything we’ve been waiting for, and we could not be more excited and ready for it!

Our ballad queen Ailee is back with a new mini-album, which will be released on October 6th. Her agency Rocket3 Entertainment says that her title track ‘우리 사랑한 동안 (When We Were In Love)’ will be a ballad and has the perfect autumn night feel to it. We’re always looking forward to hearing Ailee’s vocals and excited to hear what’s to come from the newest addition to our collection.

The concept photos for the Break Ver. show the group styled elegantly in chic black suits surrounded by scattered trophies, flowers, and chains. Their rebellious expressions let us know they’re ready to shatter expectations. Meanwhile, in the Take Ver. the girls confidently model stylish streetwear. The concept video highlights their mischievous side, and the playful music gives us a hint about what to expect from the title track. If it’s anything like their previous anthems, we know we’ll be dancing right along with them!

DAWN

After PSY piqued our attention with a cryptic post last week, we’ve been wondering which P Nation artist would be making a comeback next. It turns out it’s none other than DAWN! Since his solo debut with ‘MONEY,’ we’ve been waiting almost a year for new music from the multi-talented artist. But the wait is almost over, and we know it’s going to be worth it. DAWN’s first mini-album DAWNDIDIDAWN drops on October 9th alongside the music video for the title track of the same name. Also appearing on the track is someone who knows how to make a catchy song, P Nation family member Jessi. The announcement teaser previews a high-energy song built up with whistle tones and drum beats. We’re really hoping it will continue the laid-back hip-hop vibes of his previous self-composed music.

Dates To Remember: October 9th – Comeback

It’s been some time since we’ve heard about a solo project done by Joohoney of Monsta X. We’re glad to announce that our favorite honey bee announced his newest mixtape called, Psyche! The mixtape will come out three days after he celebrates his 26th birthday on October 6th. As far as we know, the mixtape is rumored to have10 tracks of pure gold. We can’t wait to see a killer flow from one of the main rappers who is also a singer-songwriter and producer of Monsta X.

NCITY in the house! When all of the NCT sub-units tweeted out the teaser for NCT 2020, NCTZENS, understandably, lost it. Since NCT 2018, fans have been waiting and theorizing that NCT 2020 was coming, and they were right! Not only are we getting to see our favorite 21 guys together and interacting, but we also get to meet two new faces (hi Shotaro and Sungchan!). The new album will feature 12 original songs and member units that we have been dreaming of! We can’t wait to see each of the members have their moment to shine during this comeback, and we know that NCT 2020 will go down in history!

Loona will release their 3rd mini-album, 12:00, with eight songs, including the English version of one of the new songs and, of course, the title track, ‘Why Not?’. This comeback is definitely one to look forward to and keep an eye on as they keep dropping concept photos where each of the members looked absolutely beautiful.

The boys dropped a cinematic teaser video titled The Invitation For Youth and the comeback seems to focus on the working hard, playing hard and resting hard. What a mood to be honest! We cannot wait for what’s to come and what SEVENTEEN will bring to the KPOP scene this time. One thing is for sure, a great choreography is to be expected!

They just released their third Japanese album, but there really seems to be nothing stopping them as they’re celebrating their 5th anniversary. For now, there’s not much we know about the comeback, but we have a date, and we know they’re finally releasing their second full-length album, and that’s enough to get us more than excited. It won’t be long until the album title and teasers are revealed, but knowing them, it’ll be amazing! No one expected them to release something like ‘More & More,’ and yet they did, and it was incredible in every way! So, there’s no way to know what’s in store for ONCES, but we’re for sure ready to be blown away by their talent again.

Debuts

WEI

OUI Entertainment’s new boy group WEi are ready to debut on October 5th with mini-album IDENTITY : First Sight. The teaser for the title track ‘Twilight’ is chilled and cheerful as the boys have fun against a pretty pastel backdrop. “Hey, I know that guy,” we hear you say. And you’d be right! Yohan placed first on the most recent seasons of the hit survival series Produce 101 and debuted in project group X1. Meanwhile, Donghan competed on the 2nd series and became a member of fan-chosen group JBJ. Since then, he’s been successfully promoting as a solo artist. Daehyeon and Seokhwa also appeared on Produce 101 season, then on to form temporary group Rainz and compete on YG’s Treasure Box, respectively. Members Yongha and Junseo took part in another survival show Under 19 and promoted as part of their debut lineup, 1THE9. Whew! With résumés like that, there’s no doubt these boys will do well!

Dates To Remember: October 5th – Debut

CHOCOME (WJSN SUB-UNIT)

Just when we thought Cosmic Girls couldn’t get any sweeter, they debut sub unit WJSN- CHOCOME! Members Soobin, Luda, Yeorum, and Dayoung are getting ready to release their first single album on October 7th. Along with the title track ‘Hmph!’, we can also look forward to ‘YaYaYa’ which promises to be a lot of fun. We have no hints yet about what they will sound like, but the concept photos tease bubbly girl-group pop. With the clear and bright vocals, we can always expect from WJSN, of course. The concept images show the girls looking cute and sweet in three different candy themes. They flawlessly rock each look from colourful magical girl style, pretty pastel dresses, and retro outfits. And if the aegyo filled GIFs are anything to go by, this debut will be the perfect fix for our October candy cravings!

Dates To Remember: October 7th – Debut

Singles

KYUHYUN (SUPER JUNIOR)

There are two things it just doesn’t feel like fall without; Halloween and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun. Luckily for us, the Autumn Prince returns on October 8th with a brand new single. This will be the second part of his 4 Seasons [季] Project, which brings us a new song each time the season changes. ‘Daystar’ is an emotional autumn ballad wrapped in Kyuhyun’s warm, comforting vocals. It is probably the most anticipated track from the series thanks to his iconic ‘At Gwanghwamun’ which crowned him fall royalty. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, the music video also stars actor Yoo Yeon Seok (Hospital Playlist), who brings all the feels. In the teaser, we see him melancholically going about his daily life before breaking down in tears. This will be the perfect thing to warm up those chilly October nights!

Dates To Remember: October 8th – Single Release

CHEN (EXO)

Our lovely Chen from EXO is giving us more music! We all adore Chen’s soothing vocals and whenever there’s a release, we just have to listen. On October 15th, Chen is releasing a digital single called, ‘Hello.’ We’re excited to hear some original music from Chen and can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us. Let’s get ready to have our minds blown!

GFriend is about to make waves in Japan with their new digital releases, coming on October 14th and 21st. Arriving first will be single album 回:LABYRINTH ~Crossroads~, which features Japanese versions of their tracks ‘Labyrinth’ and ‘Crossroads.’ Both of these songs have high-intensity beats and delicate vocals that are sure to translate perfectly to Japanese. Following this will be 回:Song of the Sirens ~Apple~ made up of singles ‘Apple’ and ‘Tarot Cards’ from their 9th Korean mini-album. While ‘Apple’ has a sweet and upbeat style, ‘Tarot Cards’ is more percussion-heavy and would be right at home in an anime opening. It’s been almost a year since GFriend’s last Japanese comeback, and BUDDY all over the world are looking forward to these sweet releases!
