SM Entertainment’s Alleged Plans For Their K-Pop Artists In 2024

“Knowing SM it’s safe to say half of this won’t happen.”

With 2023 in its last quarter, some K-Pop fans are already looking forward to next year and what it will bring in terms of comebacks and debuts. Curiosity is piqued even more when leaks come out about what certain K-Pop labels have planned for their artists in the upcoming months, and recently, the alleged plans for SM Entertainment‘s artists in 2024 has been shared online.

And if this leak is accurate, it sounds like there will be something released for just about every SM Entertainment artist fan to be excited about in 2024!

According to the list, there are three artists who don’t have any plans at all right now — TVXQSuper Junior, and Girls’ Generation. As some of the label’s oldest artists, it’s not terribly surprising that their music releases will be slower than younger ones, but we can still hope that this changes at some point during the next year.
