Possible March Comebacks
The moment many 2nd generation K-Pop fans were waiting for might be around the corner. BIGBANG’s T.O.P has announced plans to release a solo album in an interview with the Hong Kong Magazine Prestige.
In an Instagram post, Prestige has announced T.O.P as their March cover story “#TOPISBACK”. According to the caption, Seung Hyun (known as T.O.P) opened up about his five years hiatus, “how his love for art and music have helped him overcome the more difficult periods of his life” and “his new-found passion for changing perceptions of mental health and prepares to reveal his future plans”.
YG Entertainment has previously announced that T.O.P will not renew his contract with YG but will still be part of BIGBANG, and he will join BIGBANG activities any time if he is available.
YUGYEOM’s mum might have spilled the beans about a possible March release for KYG2. In February, a Chinese Ahgases visited Yugyeom’s mother’s restaurant, Steak Box, and while talking, she let slip that she knew her son would be having a comeback in March.
It has been indeed a while since Ahgases saw the GOT7 maknae. Yugyeom was rather busy in mid-2021 with his solo debut, collaborations, virtual concerts, and magazine photoshoot, but then he disappeared, and KYG2 is a long-awaited comeback.
It’s always worth keeping an eye on K-Pop groups making their comebacks and debuts with Japanese albums. CIX will debit with their first full Japanese album, Pinky Swear, on March 30. Meanwhile, TWICE, who are currently on tour in the US, will make their Japanese comeback on March 16 with their 4th best album titled TWICE4, and Oh My Girl will release OH MY GIRL BEST on March 30.
