March is loaded with comebacks and debuts from K-Pop soloists and groups, but this week might be the most exciting yet. Here is a quick guide on who to look out for:
In addition to popular South Korean hip-hop trio Epik High and new boy group ARGON releasing new music, former Wanna One member Lai Kuanlin and Pentagon’s Wooseok will be making their unit debut with mini-album ‘9801’. It will feature five tracks and includes a collaboration with GOT7 member Jackson Wang.
