HYBE Labels’ alleged K-pop artists’ schedule for the first half of 2023 has been leaked, revealing some fan-favorite idols making their comebacks and solo debut. If this claim is true, there will also be new artists set to be introduced.
However, fans should only take this revelation with a grain of salt, as Hybe itself is yet to confirm the news. But based on the already-announced comebacks on the list, it looks like it’s quite credible.
January to March Comebacks and Solo Debut
The list obtained by Koreaboo showed the artists who would make a comeback this January is NewJeans, who recently completed their return with a new album OMG.
Next is TXT, who’s also scheduled for a January 27 comeback with a new album, The Name Chapter: Temptation. The list also noted BTS’s Jimin’s collaboration with someone who happened to be Big Bang’s Taeyang, releasing their new song, “Vibe,” on January 13.
For February, there will be two comebacks: Seventeen and Bang-Solo.
Seventeen’s sub-unit, BSS, is confirmed to release a new album, Second Wind, on February 6.
Bang-Solo, alternatively, is probably referring to BTS’s Jimin’s debut as a solo artist.
For the last month of the year’s first quarter, another two artists are set to make their comebacks: Le Sserafim and Enhypen.

For April, another Bang-Solo is listed, and it’s believed to be BTS’s Suga or V. It’s also possible that it’s the former NU’EST member, Hwang Minhyun, who will reportedly debut solo in the said month.

Lastly, there will be a rookie boy who group who will be introduced. Though the list didn’t include any details about this, there are theories that it may be under Pledis Entertainment or KOZ Entertainment, known as Zico’s label.
