April is upon us! And oh my, is it going to be a month of great eargasms for me. It’s also going to be an extremely competitive month with some of the biggest KPOP names returning to reclaim their thrones. For us fans, and TasteMakers, it’s time to get our make on and #StopWishingStartMaking for these artists to stop by your city on their next tour!
EXO Chen (Solo Debut)
Ah, how I missed Chen’s sweet yet powerful voice. We’re starting off April with the first EXO member to make an official solo debut!
Bless your ears with Chen’s “Beautiful goodbye” and don’t forget to make if you’d like to bring him to your city!
IZONE will also be making their comeback today with HEART*IZ. Check out their teaser below!
It wouldn’t be spring without a Bolbbalgan4 release and as usual, I know they won’t be disappointing us this time around. The duo will be making their comeback on April 2 with season-fitting mini album, “Youth Diary 1: Flower Energy.”
NU’EST MinHyun (Solo Debut)
NU’EST’s MinHyun will be releasing his solo single, “Universe” ahead of NU’EST’s full group comeback.
B.A.P’s DaeHyun will be returning on the 5th with his self-composed mini-album “Chapter 2 ‘27”. He will also be meeting fans through a solo concert in Seoul on the 27th.
The fierce and sassy ladies of BLACKPINK are coming back to reclaim your area!
This time, they’ll be dropping a mini-album with 5 songs (including title song- “Kill This Love”): Don’t Know What to Do (sub-title), “Kick It,” “Hope Not” and a remix of “DDU-DU DDU-DU.”
Check out Lisa’s MV teaser released earlier today!
VIXX Ravi and GFRIEND Eunha
VIXX’S Ravi and GFRIEND’s Eunha will be releasing “Blossom” on April 11. Produced by the trending K-hiphop/K-RnB producers, Groovy Room, I’m predicting this single will be a seasonal digital monster.
With the world’s interest and spotlight on them, BTS will be making their grand return on April 12. RM got us hyped with the release of “MAP OF THE SEOUL : PERSONA” last week, and with the constant release of teasers + concept photos, they surely are keeping ARMYs well-fed.
We don’t know too much about the title track, MV or track list just yet, but judging by the recently unveiled concept photos, it feels like PERSONA will be a bright and bold concept to denote the beginning of a new BTS era.
ARMYs, are you ready to go? Ready to fly?
Let’s get ready to sing along: PERSONA. Who the hell am I? I just wanna go, I just wanna fly. I just wanna give you all the voices till I die. I just wanna give you all the shoulders when you cry.
Formed through survival show, “Under 19,” 1THE9 will be making their debut on the 13th!
Kang Daniel, Twice, Eric Nam, WINNER
