Wednesday Kpop Music Update | 9Muses Future Plans After Member Departures + Younha, HA:TFELT, And Cheetah Collab + I.O.I Album Plans + New Music (Yes… EXO)

Ok so there’s a lot that happened in the comeback world… aka EXO is back!! But before we get to that, let’s talk some girl group news.

9Muses is dealing with something that many groups seem to be dealing with early this year and that’s the departure of members. It has been announced that Euaerin and Minha have “graduated from the group”.

So what now?

“Currently we have no plans to add new members to 9MUSES… 9MUSES is currently busy working on a new song that will be released in July. The members are preparing for unit group promotions and specific details concerning it will be decided soon.”

I think that’s good. Too many times when members leave, they’re replaced and then people are feeling some kind of disconnect because, “who are these people??” There are too many comparisons being made and I just feel like the only time this is okay to do is when it’s early on in the group’s creation. For example, Red Velvet. They added members and it worked because they were still pretty new. Now everybody is used to the change and can still connect with the group.

9Muses has been around for a while, adding new people will just not mesh well in my opinion. Leave it as it is! Can’t wait for the new album!


Younha, HA:TFELT, And Cheetah are working on a collaboration!!! I’m so excited! This is a collab featuring three of my favorite artists and I have a feeling this is going to be good. And if the teasers are any indication of what this track is gonna sound like, this is gonna be really good!

The song will be released in just one week on June 13th!


I.O.I has finally revealed their album plans! We’ve been waiting for a long time to hear when this album is going to come out and what will it sound like and though we don’t have a definite answer on the sound, we do have some more details on the date.

“According to YMC Entertainment on June 7, I.O.I’s unit group plans to release an album some time between late July to the first week of August… We are trying to pick the songs carefully. The nominees for the album’s title song have been confirmed, but they’re still in the demo stage. We will add lyrics to them and choose the best one that fits with the members’ images.”

The majority of the ladies will be participating in this album. DIA’s Jung Chaeyeon and Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina won’t be in that mix apparently. I’m not surprised. They have other groups to promote with and other music to work on with different obligations and in my mind they were doing the show a favor anyway as far as ratings were concerned. I was one of those people that didn’t really understand why they were participating but I digress.


And now the moment you’ve been waiting for…
