Girls' Generation to release album
In the fickle world of K-pop, one group - Girls' Generation - have shown staying power to reach their 10th anniversary.
To celebrate the feat, their management agency has lined up a meet-up with fans in August plus a commemorative album. This will be the sixth album by the now eight-member group, whose last album, Lion Heart, came out in 2015.
Popular member Jessica left the band shortly after its release.
