Every K-pop group has its adoring fans, but with their incredible aptitude for speaking English, in addition to the quality of their music and their individual skills, it seems that JYP Entertainment girl group Itzy has an especially large and vocal international fanbase. Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna have come a long way since debuting in February 2019 with “Dalla Dalla,” but fans are always excited to see what’s in store next. So here is the exact answer as to when the next Itzy comeback is — which in this case is for their second Korean studio album, Born to Be.
Itzy Has a Comeback on January 8, 2024 with Born to Be
Itzy will come back on January 8, 2024 at 4:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. KST with their second Korean studio album, Born to Be. (The US physical album will be available beginning February 9, 2024.) The Born to Be album contains 10 songs in total, five of which are individual solo songs for each Itzy member, in which each member participated in the lyrics and composition of their respective song. The Born to Be tracklist is as follows: “Born to Be,” “Untouchable” (title track), “Mr. Vampire,” “Dynamite,” “Crown on My Head” (Yeji solo track), “Blossom” (Lia solo track), “Run Away” (Ryujin solo track), “Nine” (Chaeryeong solo track), “Yet, But” (Yuna solo track), and “Escalator.” Notably, although Lia contributed the song “Blossom” to the album, Lia is otherwise not part of this comeback album, its promotions, or its associated world tour, because she is still recovering from an anxiety disorder.
The Itzy Born to Be promotion scheduler demonstrates there will be several music videos for this album, including for the solo songs (excluding Lia’s song) across December, followed by a “Mr. Vampire” MV on January 2, 2023 KST, and culminating in an “Untouchable” MV on January 8, 2024. (Also, please note that the Born to Be album is not to be confused with the Kiss of Life mini-album, Born to be XX!)
The Itzy Born to Be album is available to preorder at the Itzy Official Store in A, B, and C versions, with the option to purchase an album that includes a message autographed by an Itzy member. It is also available to preorder at Target with an exclusive item package set. Born to Be is available to preorder from Amazon as well.
Prior to Born to Be, Itzy had released its first full Japanese album, Ringo, on October 18, 2023, which contains 11 songs in total. This means that Itzy is releasing back-to-back studio albums!
In summary, the Itzy comeback is scheduled for January 8, 2024 at 4:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. KST with the Ready to Be studio album, and it will be released physically in the United States on February 9, 2024. The album contains one solo song from each of the five Itzy members, including Lia, even though Lia is otherwise not participating in this comeback and its associated world tour.
