I already knew that Brown Eyed Girls were making a comeback after Ga-In’s current solo promotions wrapped up, but it’s still terribly exciting to have the news officially confirmed by Nega Network.
“Gain is still in the middle of her solo promotions,” Nega said in a statement. “The new album productions will speed up as soon as her promotions end. It’s still in the planning stages, but it is very likely that it will be their 10-year anniversary album.”
What does a 10-year anniversary album actually mean, though? The Queens of K-pop already dropped a greatest hits compilation last year, so it can’t be that. And it’s hard to determine how their last decade in the business will relate to a new album considering all the different concepts and sounds the group’s cycled through over the years.
BEG have done power ballads, R&B and soul, cutsie synth-pop, edgy electronica, Latin music, and SO much more. It’d be impossible to determine their next direction by looking at their history.
Shinhwa and TVXQ are two fellow top-tier K-pop acts who have released 10th anniversary albums in the past, and they were both just excuses to mark a significant milestone and use fancier album packaging, which is fine by me.
While we all wait with baited breath for the next best comeback of 2015 (after Ga-In Hawwah, obviously), let’s all listen to one of BEG’s most fucking FLAWLESS and ICONIC classics, “Moody Night.”
