Girls’ Generation singer YoonA has provided an update on the iconic girl group’s highly anticipated comeback.
Earlier this week on May 30, the K-pop idol held an Instagram Live broadcast in celebration of her birthday. During the session, the singer-actress hosted a brief Q&A session where she was asked by fans for an update on the long-awaited Girls’ Generation comeback this August.
YoonA responded that she was “preparing for the Girls’ Generation album right now”, and as a result has met up with her bandmates “really often”. She added: “[We] talk often, have a lot of meetings, and now I’m recording and preparing that. I’m really looking forward to meeting you again after a long time.”
“소녀시대 앨범 지금 한창 저도 준비를 하고 있고요 진짜 자주 만나고 자주 얘기하면서 회의도 많이 하고 이제 녹음도 하고 그러고 있어요 진짜 기대되더라고요 또 오랜만에 인사를 하면 어떤 기분일지 빨리 만나고 싶은데 잘 준비해 볼게요” pic.twitter.com/6ZutCb8I9p

Per reports, all eight remaining members of the K-pop act group will make a comeback with a new album in August to celebrate their 15th anniversary. In addition, Girls’ Generation are also scheduled to make appearances on TV shows and reality programmes to promote the upcoming release.
In April, group member Tiffany Young first teased the band’s comeback. When asked during an interview with Elle Korea if Girls’ Generation had any plans to celebrate their 15th anniversary, Young replied: “I need confirmation before saying anything… yes, we do have something planned. That should be enough right? Yes, we have plans!”
Last September, all eight members of Girls’ Generation appeared on an episode of the popular South Korean TV series You Quiz On The Block in celebration of their 14th anniversary. Their appearance on the programme had marked the group’s first official activity as a group in four years.
