‘What A Chill Kill’ will arrive nearly a year after 2022’s ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Birthday’ mini-album. Meanwhile, Red Velvet’s last full-length album was 2017’s ‘Perfect Velvet’, which featured the single ‘Peek-a-Boo’.
In August 2023, Red Velvet member Seulgi renewed her contract with SM Entertainment. It marked the second time the K-pop idol has re-signed with the K-pop agency, after first renewing her contract in 2021, which she did alongside her fellow Red Velvet members.
Seulgi’s decision to re-sign with SM Entertainment comes after a shaky year for the K-pop agency. So far in 2023, four of the label’s long-time artists – Girls’ Generation’s Sunny, and Super Junior members Eunhyuk, Donghae and Kyuhyun – opted not to renew their contracts with the company.
Meanwhile, yesterday (October 17), SM Entertainment refuted a South Korean news reports that claimed EXO members Sehun and Chanyeol would be signing contracts with a different company for their solo activities.
