If you're a K-pop fan, you can more or less count on your favorite artists at least releasing something throughout the calendar year. When though? That's completely up in the air.
While the calendar is still wide open, we have some news on a few of the year's most anticipated projects, and Fuse has crafted a list of the albums we need to have from the scene this year. From the long-awaited full-lengths to solo debuts along with some comebacks others may deem wishful thinking, here are the 10 albums we'll be wishing and hoping to hear in 2016.
What: The K-pop phenoms' long-awaited Made album
Why: Made was originally scheduled for fall last year, but after releasing, filming music videos and promoting eight singles, BIGBANG understandably needed a rest. While the guys have said the full-length is "coming out very soon," there's no set date for when we'll get Made. We do believe we'll get it soon, though, as the band capitalizes off the record-breaking hype from the previous Made singles and eldest member TOP needing to soon need to enlist in South Korea's mandatory military service (required for all men between ages 18-35) so the group will need to come out with their biggest bang yet before the quick hiatus.
