Some of the biggest names in K-pop today announced a collaborative project and debut EP.
SuperM includes Taemin from SHINee, Baekhyun and Kai of EXO, Taeyong and Mark of NCT 127, and Ten and Lucas of Chinese band WayV. Together, these groups have sold 14 million albums worldwide and had their videos streamed almost 4 billion times.
SuperM will release its debut EP on Oct. 4 through SM Entertainment, Korea’s largest entertainment company, in partnership with Capitol Music Group and Caroline Records. The EP is now available for pre-order. Physical album preorders are also available. The label is also selling something called augmented reality T-shirts for each member of the group as a package with the digital album.
The group will make its debut U.S. performances in October.
“SuperM is uniquely positioned to become the highest-profile U.S. debut of a K-pop group in the history of this phenomenon,” Capitol Music Group Chairman and CEO Steve Barnett said in a news release.
SM Entertainment Co., Ltd. is South Korea’s largest entertainment company, founded in 1995 by Soo-Man Lee. The company has developed and popularized numerous K-pop stars with huge global fandoms.
