SHINee Smashes Third Comeback This Year With “Everybody”

SHINee Everybody SHINee's been promoting non-stop this year. It's the busiest they've ever been, but I guess SM Entertainment's trying hard to keep the band relevant now that they've hit the five-year mark that often signals the death of most big K-pop acts. We all saw what happened to 2PM, whose "A.D.T.O.Y." is still the best R&B song of the year but still managed to tank because the boys hadn't done enough to keep themselves relevant in Korea.

The Top Ten Most Anticipated K-pop Comebacks Of October

K-pop Comebacks 2013 Whether it's Western pop or K-pop, the fourth quarter is always the most exciting time for big pop releases. Everybody rushes out their albums and your fave is battling someone else's fave and we all have fun little stan wars. It's great. October is looking especially juicy for K-pop this year: We've got the tarnished IU and T-ara putting out their first post-scandal releases, Taeyang and Kahi coming back after several years away from the solo spotlight, the almighty Nine Muses with their first full-length album, new stuff from underdogs like Block B and AOA, and a whole lot more.

I've rounded up the ten most anticipated K-pop comebacks of the bunch and ranked 'em all from least to best. Only the officially confirmed or strongly rumoured returns for October made the list, so that means no miss A, B1A4, Sunmi, or TVXQ.
