SechsKies has returned with its first full-length album in 18 years. The iconic 90s’ K-pop band has come back with Another Light that consists of nine tracks, including their double title songs “Something Special” and “Smile.”

The, now five-member group, debuted in 1997, only to disband three years later when their popularity was at its peak.

However, to the surprise and joy of many fans, who stayed loyal to the band, SechsKies made a comeback last year. This year marks the 20th anniversary since the first-generation idol group’s debut.

Last Saturday the band held a huge concert at the Gocheok Skydome in Seoul, as part of their 20th anniversary fan events. 

BTS’ "DNA" enters Billboard Hot 100 Charts

There are no limits for BTS. This time the boy group has entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart with their new song "DNA." It’s the first time they were ranked in the top 100 tracks on Billboard's main chart, and their song immediately joined the list at 85th spot.

BTS’ agency Big Hit Entertainment cited Billboard’s online report, saying the group was backed by 5.3 million U.S. streams in the first week of release, as well as 14,000 sold downloads.

While girl group Wonder Girls, and 2NE1’s former leader CL have previously entered the charts, BTS has become the second K-pop act - after PSY - to have charted in the Hot 100 entries with a Korean-language song.

BTS leader Rap Monster tweeted a thank you message to the group’s fan club and added another one saying, “and team work makes the dream work."

Meanwhile, BTS has already sold more than 750,000 copies of their latest album Love Yourself: Her in the first week, according to Big Hit Entertainment on Monday. 

Former Wonder Girls member Yeeun to make solo comeback 

Former Wonder Girls member Yeeun is expected to make her first comeback as a solo.

Her new agency Amoeba Culture, which she joined in April, says Yeeun is preparing for a new album that’s aimed to release mid-October.

She is said to be using her stage name 'HA:TFELT,' that should sound familiar to fans, as she used the same name for her solo debut back in 2014.

The new title song is expected to be an R&B genre, and according to Amoeba Culture the 28-year-old will be showcasing her abilities as a singer-songwriter with her new comeback.
