About two years after "Lion Heart" was released, Girls' Generation is finally making their highly anticipated comeback to celebrate their 10th year in August. In fact, the renowned girl group is reportedly eyeing to dedicate an anniversary album to their fans.
The news was personally confirmed by YoonA during her interview with "Entertainment Weekly" aired Saturday, April 15. "We're slowly preparing for Girls' Generation's 10th anniversary since debut album," she said as per Allkpop.
The eight-member girl group formally made their debut under SM Entertainment on August 5, 2007 with a performance of "Into the New World" on "Inkigayo." Three months later, Girls' Generation released their first ever studio album which sold over 55,000 copies in less than two months.
Girls' Generation had their breakthrough after the release of "Gee" in 2009. The EP reportedly sold 100,000 copies in South Korea alone. Their growing popularity extended beyond the borders of Seoul after signing a deal with a Japanese record label the following year.
Their fifth studio album, "Lion Heart," became the 13th best-selling album in South Korea for the year 2015. The album featured three title tracks "Party," "Lion Heart" and "You Think."
Last year, the girl group released a single, titled "Sailing (0805)," to celebrate their 9th anniversary. The song was personally written by Sooyoung to express their special relationship with the fans.
While gearing up for their comeback, the members of Girls' Generation are currently working on their individual projects. In fact, Sooyoung was recently confirmed to star on MBC's upcoming drama "Man who Sets the Table" as cited by Soompi.
Aside from her, YoonA landed the lead role for "The King Loves" along with Im Si Wan. Not only that, she also hinted at the possibility of releasing a solo track soon.
"I thought it would be nice to release some music showcasing my voice so I'm getting ready for that, too," YoonA candidly stated.
