‘Screen Time’ will be Epik High’s second release of 2023, following their February EP ‘Strawberry’. That project had featured collaborations with K-pop stars such as MAMAMOO‘s Hwasa, GOT7‘s Jackson Wang and more.
In a glowing four-star review of ‘Strawberry’, NME‘s Tanu I. Raj said that the trio “reiterate their renewed, mature ethos” on the EP, calling it an “irreverent, bite-sized beginning to a new chapter”.
Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN recently made a comeback with their 11th mini-album, ‘Seventeeth Heaven’. Prior to the project’s release, the boyband made K-pop history by accumulating a record number of pre-orders, with over 5.2million record sold before release.
In other K-pop news, Bae Suzy has opened up about her wish to retire from the industry, saying it might happen “at any time”. She added: “My current project could be my very last”.
At the same time, Big Bang member G-Dragon has denied allegations of drug use that have been levied against him: “I’ve never used drugs.” His statement comes a day after the K-pop idol was booked by the Incheon Metropolitan Police for allegedly breaching South Korea’s Narcotics Control Act.
