K-pop singer BoA will likely release a new album this year to mark 15 years since her debut.
"BoA is preparing to release a new album in Korea," an official from SM Entertainment said. "But the exact date has not been confirmed."
The upcoming album comes three years after she put out the seventh studio album "Only One" in Korea.
The 28-year-old also posted a photo of herself singing at a recording studio on Instagram, leading fans to suspect a comeback.
BoA debuted at age 13 after two years training under SM Entertainment in 2000, when it was still rare for a teenager to hit the professional music scene.
Since her debut, she has raised her profile by making inroads into the Japanese market with "Listen to My Heart."
BoA has recently been more focused on her acting career, with her latest film, "Big Match," released nationwide in November.
