[Poll] Who Will Be the Comeback King or Queen of May?
The competition is already firing up for the month of May, as K-Pop stars are set to make their comebacks in the coming weeks if they haven’t already.
From today’s hottest K-Pop acts to first generation idols set to come back stronger than ever, the music charts are a free for all as to who will take the top spot.
But before the competition gets to too hot, we want to know who you think will rule the month of May and take the title of K-Pop’s comeback king or queen.
4minute stormed back onto the scene this month, shouting What’s Your Name. From the Brave Brothers-branded catchy chorus to a dance that’ll get you on your feet, the track has all of the trappings of a K-Pop hit.
The girls are back and they’re bolder than ever, even taking on SNL Korea, but will their new image be enough to take 4minute to the top?
Secret returned earlier this month with Yoo Hoo, a much more subtle shout out to the boys, but the girls have been putting up a good fight in the current K-Pop war zone.
But will the song prove strong enough to survive the K-Pop comeback competition?
In the wake of the girl group takeover earlier this month, B1A4 has returned for the fan girls with the release of its fourth mini album and title track What’s Happening?.
Leader Jin Young participated in the production of this album, which was released on May 6, as well, delivering an upbeat, bouncy track just in time for the warmer months.
The beastly boys of 2PM are back, but my have they grown since we last saw them.
2PM released its new album Grown along with the music video for Comeback When You Hear This Song on May 6, showing fans a much more mature and smooth side to themselves.
The boys are also set to appear on a TV special later this week to commemorate the group’s long-awaited return.
If the title of the pre-released track Miss Korea is any indication, the competition may be no contest for the queen of K-Pop Lee Hyori.
She has already beat out 2PM, who released its mini album on the same day, to take over the real time music charts with the song.
However, the wave of heavy hitting comebacks isn’t over just yet, so we’ll have to wait and see if the queen can hold on to the title.
One of the most highly-anticipated artists of the month is Shinhwa, and the first generation idol group is set to return with its new album on May 16.
Shinhwa has been making us laugh with their crazy antics on Shinhwa Broadcast, but the boys know when it’s time to get down to business.
This year marks a particularly meaningful moment in Shinhwa’s career, as the group celebrated its 15th anniversary in March, and fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of its 11th album.
YG’s mystery artist
Leave it to YG to throw us a curve ball in the wake of these cosmic comebacks with a mysterious poster, signaling the return (or possibly, debut) of one of its artists.
The agency released a poster with the words “Who’s Next? 2013.05.28,’ sandwiched among the names of its artists, from 2NE1 and Big Bang to new acts Kang Seung Yoon and “YG New Artist,” piquing fans’ interest as to who may be returning or debuting soon.
