Happy May, TasteMakers!
Some of the K-pop jedis (soloists) will be starting us off this month by making their grand returns. Later, two of the biggest boy groups known for their solid international fanbases will be making their comebacks to finish off the month.
Let’s take a peak at the upcoming comebacks that’ll have you saying:
If the first comeback of the month is any indicator, May is going to be a brilliantly luminescent one as Kim Donghan will be making his solo comeback on May 1st.
We have a few passionate Kim Donghan fans in our office so it’s safe to say, we’re pretty stoked for this comeback and counting down the hours to 6pm KST. Take a listen to his album highlight below and (if you aren’t already) get excited with us!
Don’t forget to make Kim Donghan now to bring this fella to your city!
One of our Artists of the Week from last month, Park Bom is coming back to grace us with some more eargasmic music. Her upcoming single will feature MAMAMOO’s Whee In.
A MAMAMOO X 2NE1 collab? Are we ready for this girl crush talent explosion?
…Honestly, we’re not quite sure we’ll survive, but we’ll do our best. As Yoda said: “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
A new Golden Child comeback means more GOLDEN puns for us to make… >:)
But all puns aside, from their recently released teaser, we can already feel the spring breeze wafting over and the whimsical, radiant, boyish charms that their title track, “그러다 봄,” will deliver. Spring may almost be over, but Golden Child is ready to blossom with this impending comeback.
WooHyun will be releasing his third mini album, “A New Journey” on May 7th, 6pm KST.
WooHyun has been staying busy balancing musical rehearsals for “Mefisto,” and his upcoming Asian tour. More details will be released as May 7th draws near.
Seven months after his last comeback, Eric Nam will be returning to us on May 8th. We don’t know the details yet, but honestly Eric Nam is one of those artists we can trust 110% in to treat us to high-quality music and content.
If you haven’t already, treat yourself to some Eric Nam goodies and check out his K-Pop Daebak podcast (on Apple Podcasts) and/or his drunk live singing with his brothers below:
OH MY GIRL
OH MY GIRL(s)!
The concept-slayers of the KPOP industry aka, Korea’s “Concept Fairies.” With every comeback, Oh My Girl wows us with their ingenious, airy, girlish charms and concepts. We have a very strong feeling this comeback will go above and beyond their already sky-high standards. Oh My Girl will be returning with their first full-length album, “The Fifth Season,” on May 8th.
If you haven’t checked out their Swan Lake-esque, primadonna individual teaser photos yet, be sure to do so!
ONEUS’ brother group, ONEWE, is set to make their long-awaited (re)debut on May 13. It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had another new K-pop band to listen to so we’re really quite stoked.
Some fans may already know that this is not the members’ first debut— Yonghoon, Harin, Kanghyun, Dongmyeong and Cya— already have quite the stage experience under their belt. The members previously debuted under the name, MAS 0094, back in 2015 and collectively participated on idol survival shows such as “Produce 101” and “The Unit.”
GOT7’s long-awaited comeback is set to drop on May 20th. Along with their new album, GOT7 will visit their international iGOT7 on their world tour, set to kick off on June 15th and 16th.
NCT has been in the headlines nonstop these days as they’ve been on various US talk shows making their way across the world for their tour. Fans were treated to a sneak preview of their comeback track, “Superhuman”, when they previewed it on “Good Morning America” earlier last month. Check it out 👇
As per usual, with the SM groups, we cannot overlook the b-sides in their albums, and we’ll be getting 5 of them this time around: “Highway to Heaven,” “Fool,” “Jet Lag,” “Paper Plane,” and “Outro: We are 127.”
