SNSD to make their comeback on October 4th?


According to an inside music distributor, the girls of SNSD are set to release their new album on October 4th, and they will be making their comeback debut through KBS‘s ‘Music Bank‘ on October 7th.

Other artists planning on releasing new singles around the same time are even expected to postpone their release dates due to this. SNSD is without a doubt one of the toughest Hallyu groups to compete with, as they are well received not only in Korea but in all of Asia and parts of Europe as well. Insiders in the music industry remarked, “This time around, the rival entertainment agencies will have more questions in regards to the girls’ comeback than the fans themselves.”

This album in particular is especially noteworthy; famous producer Teddy Riley responsible for producing tracks such as Michael Jackson‘s “Dangerous” revealed through his Twitter page that he was currently working with SNSD on their new album. Teddy Riley is no stranger to the KPOP scene, as he has worked with Jay Park and RaNia in the past. There is even talk that this SNSD album has enough potential for the girls to make their breakthrough in the States, to follow their success in Asia and in Europe.

However, keep in mind that this is a rumor based on an insider and the date of their comeback has not been officially confirmed. SM Entertainment informed StarToday on the 20th, “We may need to adjust the date, depending on how quickly Soo Young is able to recover.” Soo Young was involved in a severe car accident back on August 29th and fractured a few bones. Because of her current state, she was unable to participate in the SMTOWN LIVE performances in Tokyo or the SNSD concert in Taiwan.
