Big Hitting K-pop Acts (JYJ, Sistar, f(x), and More) Prepare for July Comebacks


July promises to be a month full of exciting comebacks for fans of K-pop, with the biggest boy bands and girl groups around set to release new material.

Music veterans g.o.d will release more music, following on from the success of the group’s recent release “The Lone Duckling.” Another big-hitting act, three-piece JYJ, will also release a mini album, expected to be their last before member Jaejoong begins his period of military service. Indeed, JYJ has already begun promoting their newest release, with a 17-second video teaser with a caption promising “The Return of the King.”

Fans of girl groups have just as much to look forward to in July, also. SM Entertainment’s f(x) will also release their first new material since last year’s studio album, “Pink Tape.” SISTAR, whose members have enjoyed considerable success with a variety of solo music and drama projects, will also release a follow-up to last year’s smash “Give it to Me.” Also joining the July comeback rush will be Girl’s Day, who will make a much-awaited follow-up to the hit “Something,” which lit up the charts in January this year.

Correction: Original article stated that BIGBANG was also confirmed for a July comeback, instead of just a summer comeback.
