Several other artists such as MONSTA X's Kihyun and K-pop band WEi have also announced their comeback this October. However, at the time of writing this article, no specific dates for the same had been released in writing.

While such an extensive lineup is exciting, it also gives way to fierce competition. Considering that the South Korean entertainment industry is heavily fueled by this competitive spirit all year round, the October K-pop comebacks are also likely to see a slew of chart-topping numbers with old-records being broken and new ones being set.
