Girls' Generation is one of the hottest girl bands in the country since making their debut in 2007. The girls recently saw a successful comeback to the music scene with their repackaged second album "Run Devil Run" which conquered various online and offline music charts.
Both groups were both discovered and are managed by SM Entertainment, one of the most influential talent agencies in Korea.

SM announced in a press release that after their second full-length album goes on sale on July 19, the boys will give their comeback performance on KBS' televised music show "Music Bank" four days later.
The group was originally set to take the stage this Friday but postponed their comeback performance due to SHINee member Minho recovering from a ruptured calf muscle on his right leg which he injured during a shoot for an entertainment show.
It is not certain whether he will fully recover by July 23 but he will participate in the choreography depending on his progress, SM added.
Meanwhile, SM also said a medley highlighting the nine tracks from the second studio album will be released on the group's official website (http://shinee.smtown.com) later today.

Just last week, SM revealed the teaser video for the title track as well a medley highlighting the songs from the record.
The latest album, containing 13 songs, will also feature tracks which SHINee members Onew and Jonghyun took part in writing.
