Red Velvet's vocalist Kang-Seulgi has teased that the all female K-pop band may be making a comeback in 2019.
As reported by Allkpop, during the 'U+5G The Fact Music Awards' on April 24, when host Jun Hyun Moo asked Seulgi when the girl group would be returning, the vocalist stated "it's a good thing to look forward to something in 2019, but it's a secret when exactly our comeback is."
Wendy, another member of the band, added, "As long as you're waiting, we'll make sure to work hard to prepare, so we can make a comeback soon." Band member Irene, on her part, responded that she didn't know if they would be making a comeback.
Red Velvet made their official debut on stage during the program Music Bank in 2014.
Their debut single, 'Happiness', was digitally released on August 4 and the song was penned by Yoo Young-jin and composed by Will Simms, Chad Hugo (The Neptunes), Chris Holsten, and Anne Judith Wik (Dsign Music). It was described as an urban Europop song with a strong synth sound and an African tribal beat.
Red Velvet is known for their 'dual concept' dubbed as their "red" and "velvet" sides which influence their styling and the music they release. The group's "red" half produces singles predominantly of the pop genre due to its bright and more youthful nature. Their most recent project was being featured in a remixed version of Ellie Goulding and Diplo's, 'Close to Me,' with the group contributing Korean lyrics to the song.
K-pop has come of age on the global stage, with many bands making an appearance on US and UK charts, and performing at major music festival across the world. K-pop groups like BTS and Pinkpop have made waves courtesy the variety they bring to the table. Their music videos are more like works of art since they mash up various genres of music and have a colorful aesthetic. What also adds to the uniqueness is the story that each song tries to tell with an addictive melody pegged to it.
