SHINee has revealed what exactly “The Story of Light” will be!
Following their earlier teaser at midnight KST, the group shared a new photo and more information about nine hours later.
They explained that “The Story of Light” is the title of their sixth full-length album, but in honor of their 10th debut anniversary this year, it will consist of three parts or “episodes,” each with its own title track and four additional new songs for a total of 15 tracks altogether. As previously announced, these three parts will be released on May 28, June 11, and June 25, and the group is planning on holding promotions for all three parts.
Along with this information, SHINee also shared a new teaser image for their upcoming comeback.
SHINee has released a poster for “The Story of Light”!
On May 16, a poster was shared that includes the title “The Story of Light” and three release dates. “The Story of Light” is divided into three “EP”s, which may stand for “episodes” or “Extended Plays,” an alternative term for a mini album. The first is coming out on May 28, the second on June 11, and the third on June 25.
Fans are wondering if this is the first teaser for SHINee’s comeback, after it was previously announced that they’ll be returning with a new release this month to mark their 10th anniversary.
SHINee’s website was transformed with a new design including a fox after the poster was released, and the group’s social media icons have also been switched to the image, which is a common sign that a comeback is on the way.
