A participation-based idol app, IDOLCHAMP, has conducted a survey for 2 weeks, starting from the 27th of November, asking the following question – which of the idols that are scheduled for a comeback in December are the fan PDs most excited for?
The year 2020 is coming to a close, and it came with the very welcome news of comebacks in the world of K-POP. In other years, K-Pop culture in December would’ve been more active, with award ceremonies and album releases, but this is unfortunately not the case this year. However, fans are being comforted by news of comebacks scheduled for December. On the 1st, K-pop’s old-timer BoA came back, 20 years after her first debut, followed by THE BOYZ, Taeyeon from Girls’ Generation, Sungkyu from INFINITE, ONEUS, GHOST9, and others. Out of all the groups, the 6 million global k-pop fans have chosen IZ*ONE as the group they’re most looking forward to.
In their 4th mini-album, titled ‘One-reeler / Act IV’, members of IZ*ONE have shown off their artistic sides as they portrayed their youths like a scene out of a movie – befitting the title, which means a short firm. Another thing to note is that the album itself is composed of three scenes, which adds to the movie-like theme. Thanks to this, the songs in the album are like soundtracks of a movie that tells the story of IZ*ONE’s growth.
The title song of the album, Panorama, is about remembering the brightest moments forever. This pop-house song reminds one of an emotional, yet rich landscape, In the flow of the three scenes, this particular song acts as a close, and signifies a concept of ‘us’. In addition, Chaewon has added her own song, Slow Travel, to the tracklist, where she sings about how she wishes that her time with WIZ*ONE can last for longer. This song added a depth to the album as well as showcasing Chaewon’s capabilities as a singer-songwriter.
IZ*ONE came first in the survey with a score of 38.89%, followed by BoA with 25.00% after her 20th-anniversary comeback. ONEUS, THE BOYZ, Chungha, and GHOST9 followed suite. The results of the survey is available in kstarlive, IDOPCHAMP app, and 200-300 media around the world.
IDOLCHAMP is currently conducting another survey, which runs until December 22nd, on idols that the fans have high hopes for in the new year. Candidates for this survey include KANGDANIEL, NCT, BTS, MONSTA X, Stray Kids, Blankpinnk, etc. The idol who comes first will have the honor of having an outdoor advertisement in Dongdaemun APM.
