Hit after hit. It’s not even halfway through the year, but K-Pop has truly been popping off in 2023. With so many releases from different boy groups, girl groups and solo artists, your K-Pop CD collection will grow ten-fold. Here’s where to get K-Pop albums with many exclusive perks from Target.
The year kicked off with TWICE and TOMORROW X TOGETHER releasing new singles and eventually their new anticipated albums, Ready to Be and The Name Chapter: Temptation. After BTS’ military enlistment announcement, several BTS members released their solo albums to much critical acclaim. Jimin released his EP Face in March 2022 and his second single off the mini-album, “Like Crazy” topped the Billboard 100, a first for a solo South Korean act. Suga also released his first full-length album D-Day under his alter ego Agust D, after he released his mixtapes D-2 and Agust D. There’s still so much more to come with groups like SEVENTEEN, LE SSERAFIM and (G)I-DLE announcing comebacks for April and May.
Target is one of the most reliable sites to get authentic K-Pop albums. As an added bonus, Target carries exclusive versions of K-Pop albums with extra photocards and postcards so that you can obsess over your biases or trade with your friends across the world.

He released it under the name of his alter ego Agust D, which FYI is Suga backwards with DT representing his hometown Daegu, as in ‘Daegu Town.’ With songs like his single “People (Pt. 2) feat.
