We reported a week ago about 4minute releasing their first mini-album, For Muzik on 24th August. That release date came from YesAsia.com and no Korean news sites had reported on this then. YesAsia.com usually puts their release date, a few days after it's released in Korea because of shipping and handling.
Three days ago, Korean news sites finally picked up on the news and announced the mini-album release date on 20th August. But it's the 21st of August today and still no mini-album release, what happened? Apparently, Cube Entertainment has delayed the release date by a week, and the new revised date is set at 27th August. A check over at YesAsia.com indicates a new release date as well, 3rd September.
While we wait another week, listen again to their previous unreleased track MUZIK which was used for a Sony Walkman commercial back in July.
This delay will mean a head-to-head collision with Jewelry who will be releasing their 6th album, Sophisicated album on the same day, 27th August after they postponed their original release date as well. Although no reasons were given, I assume it's because of former S.Korean president, Kim Dae Jung's passing and the subsequent cancellation of all music shows this week which disrupted their planned schedules.
