Get your calendar and funds ready for these releases, concerts, and fanmeets coming our way this July 2023.


It has been a long wait for EXO-Ls, but its worth it now that EXO’s highly-awaited new album, EXIST, is finally dropping this July 10. From the pre-release singles that they’ve dropped, best believe we’ll be ready to stream from front to back their 7th album. And, as Baekhyun teased during his performance at Overpass in June, Pinoy EXO-Ls may soon reunite with their best boys.


Following the wild ride that was Boys Planet, ZEROBASEONE is finally ready to entertain their fans with their official debut coming this July 10.

The solo releases for BTS continues, and up next is Jungkook who may just well stop the world when he drops his song, Seven, on July 14.

Pinoy Deobi and THE BOYZ are about to have the best kind of reunion this July as the K-pop boy group are set to hold a concert at Araneta Coliseum on July 15, making it their biggest solo show in the country to date.


To some, ISTJ is known as the personality type for introverts and observant thinkers. But to NCTzens, it’s the name of the group’s third full-length album dropping this July 17. And going by the teasers they have dropped so far; the group look to be going for an introverted-extroverted theme.


ASAP NewJeans comeback/hurry up/don’t be lazy. From collaborating with Powerpuff Girls and going for a more Fairy Core aesthetic, NewJeans has been pulling out all the stops for their second EP, Get Up, dropping on July 21.

This time, Apink, CIX, and more will entertain their Filipino fans, all for the benefit of people with cleft lip and palate.   


If Marshmallow is anything to go by, then we know MISAMO is going to serve when their debut mini-album, Masterpiece, drops on July 26. TWICE’s first sub-unit is coming for wigs.


A new era for TREASURE is on the horizon, which is fitting then given that their second full-length album dropping on July 28 is called REBOOT. We’re very much ready for the group’s first full-group comeback of the year.


PH SONEs are eating good this July. First, Yuri is having a fanmeet on July 9. Then, Taeyeon is coming back to the country following her K-Verse set last April.
