Red Velvet will be getting their first sub-unit by the way of the Seulgi and Irene duo. SM Entertainment confirmed the initial report on the pairing.
SM Entertainment commented in response to the previous reports, “Seulgi and Irene are preparing their first unit album. The release date will be revealed once it is finalized.”
Suppose the pairing only makes sense when you consider they first shot into the consciousness of most through their SR14G performance of SES‘s “Be Natural” as SM Rookies.
Also makes sense because they’re unlikely to be able to make a group comeback as Wendy is still recovering from her injuries.
Should be interesting to see what musical/conceptual direction they go.
