FuseTV recently released a list of the Top 25 Most Anticipated Spring 2016 Albums. With the Hallyu wave continuing it’s rise, it’s no wonder that the list contains not one, but two K-Pop acts – Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and power boy group BTS!
Although the name of her new album has not been released as of yet, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon has enjoyed massive success since her solo debut with the hit single “I” from the mini-album of the same name. The talented artist is all set to drop her first full length studio album in April and will also be holding her first actual solo concert on April 23rd and 24th, so we can expect the album to be released in the first half of the month.
FuseTV’s Jeff Benjamin wrote about why Taeyeon’s full length album was hugely anticipated stating that –
“The Girls’ Generation leader absolutely slayed us with her debut solo single “I” last year, and the 27-year-old isn’t slowing down from there. She announced plans to release her first full-length album in April that will likely coincide with her upcoming solo concerts planned on April 23 and 24th in Korea. We hope she continues to experiment with new sounds as the lush and uplifting “I” was indication Taeyeon has a ton to offer as a solo star, in addition to leading her girl group.”
The boys of BTS (Bangtan Soneyeondan) made the list with the album ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever‘ which is scheduled for release on May 2! This will be the group’s third installment in the HwaYangYeonHwa series and fans are especially thrilled as the album will be followed by an ‘EPILOGUE‘ Concert on May 7 and 8.
FuseTV’s Jeff Benjamin wrote about why BTS’ is so strong as musical artists and why their ‘Young Forever‘ album is a sure fire hit stating that –
“Korea’s latest boy band sensation released two of the best K-pop albums last year with both Part 1 and Part 2 of their The Beautiful Moment in Life EP series. The third and final installment comes this May with Young Forever, which is sure to end with a bang, and likely to explore more topic about youth, identity, dreams, and more topics that BTS approach in honest ways that are a breath of fresh air in the K-pop scene.”
Congratulations to Taeyeon and BTS! We can’t wait for these albums to be released!
