If you visit the official Red Velvet website, you will be greeted with a cute animation of an arrow piercing a heart and you will hear a little “pop” sound. This just one of the teasers that SM Entertainment has provided the fans with.
“Russian Roulette” seems to be the title of the comeback and so far, teaser images have been released for members Joy and Wendy.
SM Entertainment has also released multiple teaser images for Joy which you can find her adorable teaser gif on the girl group’s official Instagram account!
Red Velvet has made a return with the collage teasers they once used before for their debut with “Happiness.” Since then, the SM girl quartet turned quintet has risen in popularity, particularly with their last comeback, “Dumb Dumb.” The track went on to become the most popular K-pop song of 2015.
They also made a cameo on the drama “Descendants of the Sun.” Fans have been waiting a very long time for this comeback, despite Red Velvet releasing “One of These Nights,” earlier this year.
Teasers are expected to continue until September 7th, when the group is set to make an official comeback at 12 A.M KST. With new YG girl group, BLACKPINK, currently dominating charts with their debut songs, it will be interesting to see if last year’s most loved and popular SM girl group will be able to reclaim their title.
“Russian Roulette” is certainly one of the more interesting title choices I’ve seen this year and I will be anticipating the music video, which I suspect won’t be following your typical game of chance Roulette scene. We could also possibly rule out a gambling related theme since EXO‘s “Lotto” seemed to cover that quite well.
Will it be a cute love story involving chance? Let us know what you think the concept would be like in the comments below. Stay tuned with Officially KMusic as we bring you the latest news from Korean Entertainment!
