Girls’ Generation Yuri To Release First-Ever Solo Album In October

She’ll officially be starting her solo career as a singer.

Girls’ Generation Yuri is expecting to release her first-ever solo album in October and officially begin her solo promotions!


According to an industry affiliate, Yuri previously released a collaboration in the past, but this will be the first time Yuri releases a full solo album.

“Yuri has released a collaboration with DJ Raiden through the SM ‘STATION’ in January but this is the first time she is officially releasing an album and preparing a solo. She will be showing a different side from Taeyeon, Hyoyeon and Yoona, who have already released a solo album within Girls’ Generation.”

Moreover, Yuri has been cast in the new drama Dae Jang Geum Is Watching as the character Bok Seung Ah. The upcoming MBC drama is set to begin airing on October 4th.

“Yuri has also been focusing on expanding her capacity as an actress on top of her Girls’ Generation promotions. She is also expecting to appear on music programs after more detailed scheduling with her drama Dae Jang Geum Is Watching.”

News of her first solo album comes as a pleasant surprise as many fans were concerned over Yuri’s claims that she wasn’t “popular” enough to have a solo fan meeting like the rest of her members. Her manager told her she would be “disappointed”, but later clarified that he believes in her.


Seems like Yuri’s proving them all wrong by pursuing both acting and singing at the same time, and both projects will be without-a-doubt complete successes! Congratulations, Yuri!
