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!

April 1

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!

April 2


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.”


April 3

NU’EST MinHyun (Solo Debut)

NU’EST’s MinHyun will be releasing his solo single, “Universe” ahead of NU’EST’s full group comeback.

April 5

B.A.P DaeHyun

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!

April 11

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.


April 12


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.

April 13

1THE9 (Debut)

Formed through survival show, “Under 19,” 1THE9 will be making their debut on the 13th!

February Comebacks to Steam Up Your Winter!

February Comebacks to Steam Up Your Winter!

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?


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.



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.
