The great battle between girl groups that heated up the first half of 2022 will continue in October.
Girl groups are showing their strong power in the K-pop industry this year. The performances of groups from Gen 2 to Gen 4, such as ranking #1 on music programs as well as domestic and global digital and physical charts, were greater than ever. While proving their outstanding abilities in many ways, (G)I-DLE, LE SSERAFIM, and Kep1er are ready to give momentum to the music industry that is dominated by girl groups.
According to K-pop officials on September 15th, (G)I-DLE will release a new album on October 17th, This is the group’s first comeback in 7 months since the release of their first full album “I NEVER DIE”.
(G)I-DLE is a group that has already gained recognition for both popularity and musicality by topping music charts in Korea and overseas with their full album title song “TOMBOY”. K-pop listeners are already curious about what concept and music the girls will present in their new album.
HYBE Labels – Source Music’s new girl group LE SSERAFIM will also return to the K-pop race on the same day. Since their first album “FEARLESS” received good results on Billboard Global Chart for a long time as well as major digital rankings in Korea and overseas, expectations are high for the new album that LE SSERAFIM will release.
In particular, this will be LE SSERAFIM’s first album since the group was reorganized with the 5-member system after the withdrawal of Kim Ga-ram, who was embroiled in school bullying controversies even before her debut. Fans are paying keen attention to the new music color that LE SSERAFIM will show as a 5-member group without recruiting new members.
Prior to (G)I-DLE and LE SSERAFIM’s comebacks, another representative of the 4th generation Kep1er will return with new music on October 13th. Following their debut title song “WA DA DA”, the girls won 1st place on terrestrial music shows with “UP!” and they will challenge another career high through the new album this time.
Kep1er recently made their official debut in japan with the first single “FLY-UP” and proved their global influence by recording remarkable achievements on Spotify, Billboard Japan and Oricon with the title song “Wing Wing”. Attention is focused on how Kep1er will perform in Korea after successfully wrapping up their activities in Japan.
