Somi, Sunmi and ONF confirm summer comeback releases after Astro, Dreamcatcher and Weeekly
Previously, it was announced that Astro, Dreamcatcher, Weeekly and CIX had confirmed their comeback for the summer. Mid-2021 is about to get even busier with more K-pop artists announcing that they too will be coming back in July end and early August.
While many love the interactions between different artists since they release music at the same time, some fans worry about music show wins since it means even more competition. However, this might not be a concern since it has been announced that major music shows are going to be canceled for a while due to the Tokyo Olympics.

ONF has been quite busy this year. From the release of their first studio album to returning with a repackaged album, the boy group hasn’t had time to rest. However, their hard work paid off since they got their first music show win with the title track ‘Beautiful Beautiful’. Their latest single, ‘Ugly Dance’, is a dance-hip-hop track that went viral earning them global recognition. And they’re back once again with a new album that will be released in early August. Known for their experimental tracks, fans wonder what kind of genre they’ll tap into for their summer release.
Fans were especially excited about Somi’s comeback since she will be coming back after almost a year. Since the disbandment of her project group I.O.I, fans have been eager to see her perform. While she did debut as a solo artist in 2019, she has had only two comebacks. She did get her first music show win with ‘What You Waiting For’, which was released in 2020. Her agency has confirmed that she will be coming back with her third album that is set to be released on August 2.
Sunmi happens to be the latest artist to confirm a summer comeback. She will be releasing new music after six whole months. While she has been busy as a mentor on the survival show ‘Girls Planet 999’, it is not going to stop her from making her own comeback. Fans love her sexy and seductive songs as seen with the response to her groundbreaking song ‘Tail’. Her fearless choreography and alluring outfits caught the general viewer’s eye as they lauded her for not sticking to the standard image that a K-pop idol should have. This is why fans are wondering if she will stick to dark concepts or opt for a fun and cheerful track for her summer release.
