Red Velvet is gearing up to for a new album in August, label SM Entertainment said earlier this week, confirming previous media reports.
It would be one year and eight months since it released the repackaged album The ReVe Festival Finale. The band picked up nine trophies from television music shows alone with Psycho from the repackaged album.
Wendy, who suffered an injury during a rehearsal in 2019, was on a yearlong hiatus and has been focusing on rehabilitation until she came out with solo music in April. She was the first to debut as a solo musician. Joy followed with a special remake album last month. Wendy’s EP Like Water topped iTunes’ top album chart in 30 regions, the best record for a K-pop solo female artist, and Joy’s Hello in 26 regions.
Since its debut in 2014, the quintet has released a series of summertime hits, such as Red Flavor, Power Up and Umpah Umpah. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
