Twice member Nayeon shared a teaser image and release date today for her first solo album, “Im Nayeon.”

While Twice’s members have previously shared their solo covers on YouTube or have had their songs included on OSTs for Korean dramas, like “Hospital Playlist,” Nayeon is the first of the group’s nine members to have their own solo album. 

The album is slated for release on June 24 at 1 p.m. KST with pre-orders starting on May 24 at 1 p.m. KST.

Twice has been busy, first concluding and selling out the U.S. leg of their tour earlier this year only to return for their first-ever stadium performances in a two-night encore show at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. After the encore show’s conclusion this past weekend, all nine members created their first personal Instagram accounts.

The JYP Entertainment girl group will perform tonight at 11:35 P.M. EST on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” 

Nayeon’s solo album also answers one of the mystery dates Twice tweeted out earlier this week. 

The “8.26.2022” date remains a mystery as to what new content or project Twice has in store for their fans.
