The “Girls & Peace in Seoul” concert DVD is now available for pre-order from YesAsia (poster in tube, folded poster), Synnara, KTOWN4U (poster, no poster), HMV Japan, and other online retailers.
On the other hand, the rumors regarding Girls’ Generation to release their fifth album have emerged through Korean media is said that the group will release the full Korean album on May 5.
This will their fifth album after they last released full album ‘I Got A Boy’ in 2013. The album will also become their new era and beginning, because this is the band’s first album with just eight members.
In a response to this, SM Entertainment has since stepped up to tell TV Daily that they're still unsure about the exact album release date, but also didn't address whether May really is their intended date.
A rep stated on February 26, "Girls' Generation is consistently preparing for their comeback as eight members, but the exact album release date has not yet been decided on."
Girls’ Generation are currently preparing their latest Japanese single titled ‘Catch Me If You Can’, which is scheduled for release in April.
