South Korean entertainment agency HYBE just announced the line-up of their artists making a comeback at the beginning of 2023, and K-pop fans have more than enough time to prepare their wallets.

During their annual briefing, numerous representatives from the label, including their subsidiaries Pledis Entertainment, BeLift Lab, and Source Music, shared their comeback plans for the next year, and even introduced possible collaboration efforts, according to AllKpop.

But that's not all the music label has in store, for the agency's CEO Park Ji Won also revealed some of HYBE's artists' promotional plans before this year ends.

For the remainder of 2022, the company would be launching HYBE Labels Japan's first boy group named, "&TEAM," after the members were selected through a recently concluded reality survival show, "The Howling," in September. The new members compromise K, Taki, Fuma, Nicholas, EJ, Yuma, Jo, Harua, and Maki. Their debut is set for Dec. 7, 2022.

BTS fans, known as AMRMY, could also look forward to the most-awaited solo debut of leader RM, 28, who is next up following fellow BTS member Jin's successful single, "The Astronaut," released last month.

Starting in 2023, Tomorrow x Together, a five-member boyband, consisting of Yeonjun, Soobin, Taehyun, Beomgyu, and Huening Kai, is planning to release their fifth mini album in January. The group was well-known for the hit singles "Good Boy, Gone Bad," "Blue Hour, and "LO$ER=LO♡ER."

Likewise, former NU'EST member Hwang Min Hyun would also be set on making his official solo debut, after his former boyband mate Baekho's solo debut earlier this year.

Pledis Entertainment also revealed that Seventeen, who just returned to Korea from their successful "Be The Sun" international tour across countries in North America, and Asia, and South Korean girl pop group fromis_9, are launching new albums in the first half of 2023 as well. Aside from that, they are also gearing up for the launch of a new rookie boy group under the label.

BeLift Lab's Enhypen is also making a comeback with a new album following the conclusion of their "Manifesto" world tour next year. The then-best rookie group, whose members are Heesung, Jungwon, Niki, Jake, Jay, Sunghoon, and Sunoo, just released their first Japanese full-length album, "Sadame," on Oct. 26.

As for the newly launched girl groups LE SSERAFIM and NewJeans, the former would be preparing for a global tour next year, according to their label Source Music. Meanwhile, NewJeans' first-ever comeback single "OMG" arrives on Jan. 2, 2023.

Le Sserafim and NewJeans have reached massive success, each group having chart-topping singles. The groups have become globally known despite only debuting in May, and August, respectively.

Le Sserafim recently launched their first comeback with the catchy new single "ANTIFRAGILE." The choreography from their apocalyptic-themed music video has since become a dance trend online.
