A rumored list of comeback plans for SM Entertainment artists in the first half of 2023 is currently the source of discontentment for numerous fandoms within the SM family tree.
According to the rumored list, here are the anticipated album releases of SM Entertainment artists from January through May, 2023:
January 6 | Super Junior | 11th full album ‘The Road’
January 16 | GOT the Beat | 1st mini album ‘Stamp On It’

First off, for many netizens, this rumored list came across as incomplete at best, as such a sparse schedule would never fulfill the “41 new album releases” announced by SM Entertainment in early February.
