Not only one, but two YG groups are making a comeback soon!
YG Entertainment revealed iKON and WINNER are working on their new album to be released for their comeback. "WINNER and iKON are preparing new albums with goals for release early next year," a representative said as per Allkpop.
The source continued, "It'll be after Akdong Musician's comeback on January 3, but the exact release date, order, album format, and broadcast/event schedules are not yet confirmed."
Recently, the label announced Nam Tae Hyun's permanent departure from WINNER due to mental health issues. However, the boy group seemed to be enjoying each others' company despite the exit of a co-member.
Last week, WINNER posted their first updated photo as a four-member group since the departure of Nam Tae Hyun, Soompi cited. Lee Seung Hoon took to his Instagram account to share the group's photo after watching Kim Jin Woo's "The Little Prince" production.
Lee Seung Hoon captioned the photo, "We had a rare and precious experience thanks to you. #SeoulArtsCenter #TheLittlePrince #KimJinwoo."
Reports claimed Kim Jin Woo was the first K-Pop artist to participate in a contemporary dance production. On the other hand, the Korea National Contemporary Dance Company said they have chosen the WINNER member because his image matched the cast he is assigned to play.
"We offered the role to Kim Jinwoo because he fits the image and we saw his passion for dance," the company said, adding that the WINNER member worked hard to practice with the other dancers for the production.
On other hand, iKON confirmed they will be staging the second leg of "iKON Japan Tour" next year. Reports claimed the group is eyeing to gather 120,000 people for the second leg of concert tour.
