Taeyeon is returning with solo music soon. The 34-year-old singer is set to come back with her 5th mini-album titled To. X. This album will drop on 27 Nov at 6PM KST (5PM SGT).
Her upcoming musical release will mark more than one year since she last officially dropped solo music. Her last was in February 2022, with her third studio album INVU (2023).
Prior to the official release of her upcoming album, the singer first revealed some teaser images. Taeyeon’s teaser images were usually her individual shots. But this time, she released some relatively suggestive images with a male counterpart.

Fans later identified him to be Kim Hyunjae, an actor from South Korean model and actors management company YG KPlus.
While her fans were generally shocked, most are looking forward to the more mature concept that she has to offer in her upcoming mini album.
The album’s tracks are diverse, ranging from the majestic R&B track, Fabulous, to the dreamy pop ballad song, All For Nothing. These tracks also hold a special significance to fans. The former is Taeyeon’s second English song after The Magic of Christmas Time (2017) and the latter’s lyrics were written by her.
The album, with four different versions, is now available for preorder on various sites. Before the album’s release, there will be a live broadcast on 27 Nov at 5PM KST.
Separately, Taeyeon was previously here in Singapore and she played a total of two nights at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. She was here as part of her The Odd of Love tour, and Singapore happened to be the last stop in the tour series.
Then, she enchanted the audience with timeless earworms and delivered captivating and emotive performances that left fans enthralled.
