On May 11, Akdong Musician took part in an interview, where they gave more details on the upcoming 2nd half of their album 'AKMU Puberty'. 

Much like fellow YG Entertainment labelmate Lee Hi, Akdong Musician previously announced that they would be releasing two halves of a full album this year. The 1st half of 'AKMU Puberty', with dual title tracks "How People Move" and "RE-BYE", has been doing exceptionally well on music charts. 

About the 2nd half of 'AKMU Puberty', Chanhyuk revealed, "The 2nd half of 'AKMU Puberty' was mostly finished too. We plan on taking the feedback from the 1st half and using it to make adjustments to the 2nd half. But overall, the theme will not change. If we were to give another hint, the upcoming 2nd half will contain ballads." 

Suhyun added, "It will come out by the end of this year." 

We can't wait for the 2nd half of 'AKMU Puberty'!

Does anyone know if a full album with the two minis combined will be released eventually? If that's the case, I won't be purchasing the physical copy of volume one. Thanks!

I seriously dislike this "half album" release scheme they've got going on at YG. They always try and find a justification for it by explaining concepts or whatever, but you just know it's so they can get more sales. I mean, commercially it's a genius move, and it does keep the artists in the limelight longer and more often, so that's good for fans. But still, I don't care much for the concept.

YG is such a smart ass for having ideas like 2 parts album. MADE was a success so expect more of that kind in the near future. lol.Winner will be having series of EPs this year too. The X, I,T of their EXIT series are yet to be released.I bet Ikon will have their own too , like LIKE series or IKON series or EVEN series. Who knows?

I don't understand this "half album" non-sense that yg does, why not just make it two separate mini albums?

first album was for suhyun growth (puberty--it sounds odd when you translate it into english) over the past 2 years (hence released on her birthday) and the 2nd mini album will most likely be towards chanhyuk's birthday (september) but that might be too soon. plus 2 albums will bring YG more money, keep chanhyuk busy, and like the article said, see the feedback from the 1st album to make adjustments. it may just mean they have that many main title worthy songs and want to promote it. like Big Bang's MADE series, they had a title worthy song on each of the 4 mini (more like micro) albums. if they were to put all 8 songs on a full album, we would only hear them promote about two songs for about 2 months (bangbangbang and loser - cuz those were my favorites lol)

AKMU is that weird middle ground genre between YG's hip-hop groups and HIGHGRND's k-indie groups. Whoever thought it was cool to have an album called puberty needs to be fired. The brother member needs to be fired for trying hard to be cute jfc.

CLesbo (Banned) architect Wednesday, May 11, 2016
