The way it looks right now, February will turn out to be a mix of seasoned veterans returning to the scene and new debuts gearing up to mark their place in K-pop history.
Without further ado, here are some February comebacks to help you dance the cold away and steam up your winter!
February 4- Kim Hyun Joong
Kim Hyun Joong will start off the slew of February comebacks with the release of his studio album, “NEW WAY,” on the 4th. It’s reported that Kim Hyun Joong directly participated in the composing, arranging and producing of this upcoming album.
February 11- TST (Top Secret)
TST will be making a five-member comeback on February 11, sans Wooyoung who will be sitting out this promotion in order to focus on recovering his health.
Though details regarding their upcoming comeback have been kept a top secret (full pun intended), we’re excited to see what new side they’ll reveal to us this time.
February 11- SHINee’s Taemin
SHINee’s Taemin is set to make his grand return on February 11 with his second mini album, “WANT.” As we can guess from the title and teaser photos, WANT will most likely be a sexy and fatal concept that’ll surely steam up our cold winter.
Honestly, after the numerous MOVE-inspired covers and parodies that blew up with Taemin’s last comeback, I’m personally so excited to see the new iconic performances he’ll bring this time around!
February 18th- ITZY (Debut)
Although this isn’t quite a comeback, we can’t leave out the hot debut everyone has been waiting for… JYP’s new girl group, ITZY, will make their debut on the 18th. I think it’s safe to assume that ITZY will be more girl-crush than bubblegum K-pop.
With many Korean and international fans calling ITZY a mix of Red Velvet and BLACKPINK, only time will show us what new girl group history these monster rookies will write!
February 20th- Yoon JiSung
Like many WANNABLES, I was crushed when WANNA ONE disbanded earlier this year. However, Yoon JiSung fans, fearnot! His company has confirmed that he is set to make his solo debut with an album on the 20th.
Not too much info regarding the concept yet, but with news that Lee Dae Hwi is set to gift a B-side track, we’re definitely looking forward to a reunion of WANNA ONE’s talents as well as the opportunity to hear Yoon JiSung’s potential as a soloist.
DreamCatcher - TBD
Happy Face Entertainment announced DreamCatcher’s winter comeback. Specific dates are unknown yet, however, they did drop a mysterious teaser on DreamCatcher’s Instagram.
“Metal Queens” is how one of our MMT members has monikered them in our office due to their avant-garde, metal music color. I’m ready for my ears to be blessed by their new release. Are you?
SF9 - TBD
There’s increasing interest from the Korean public in SF9’s upcoming comeback after Chani’s appearance in the immensely popular drama, Sky Castle.
We don’t have too much info just yet about the impending comeback, but with the hush hush and fanfare ;) surrounding this comeback— it might turn out to be SF9’s most powerful one yet.
MONSTA X- TBD
After the release of “ARE YOU THERE?” just four months ago, the seven charismatic men of MONSTA X are set to make a February comeback and steam up our winter. No confirmation on the date or concept just yet, but I’m crossing my fingers for a possible world tour?
Some other groups and soloists rumored to make a February comeback: WINNER, Jisook (former RAINBOW member), Henry, Hwasa (Mamamoo), SEVEN, HyoMin, LOONA, Kwon JinAh, SATURDAY.
