While we await DAY6’s comeback album, the band released a teaser trailer on April 27.

Check out the full trailer here


We’ve been loving our girl Solar from MAMAMOO’s solo debut album, Spit It Out. Her title track of the same name is all about speaking your truth, no matter what anyone has to say about it.

SM Entertainment teamed up with Naver to start the first live concert streaming series, Beyond LIVE. SuperM kicked us off on April 26. They announced the news we’ve all been waiting for. They’ll be returning with a new album soon! During the concert, they performed an unreleased track, Tiger Inside, along with a medley of their new music.
