Summer is not just about the sizzling sun, cool beaches and ice cream; it's also about new styles, music and fashion.

Top Korean female singers are preparing for big comebacks this season and some are already making headlines with their new looks and music.

Lee Hyori, Ivy and Jang Yoon-jeong are ready to surprise fans with their new music and styles.

Lee, one of Korea's favorite female singers, is planning to make a comeback next month and is already making fans wonder about her new look and melodies. Lee's management, Mnet Media, recently released a teaser poster of her upcoming album. The concept of the album is "sophisticated sexy" and so fans will once again see Lee as a sexy pop star, but with more maturity.

With her sexy image and down-to-earth personality, the 28-year-old former leader of the now disbanded group Fin.K.L has become an icon in the Korean entertainment and fashion industries. Lee recently left a short message on her homepage, saying this will be "the best album yet". Famous singers also participated in her album, including fellow former member of Fin.K.L., Ock Joo-hyun and top singer Kim Gun-mo.

Another popular singer is putting the finishing touches to her new album: Ivy. The past year was a difficult one for the 26 -year-old singer, finding herself in the middle of a messy scandal regarding her ex-boyfriend. But Ivy stayed strong and made a surprise appearance in the drama "Tokyo, Fox Rain". Fans showed interest and it was evident that many were waiting for her return as a singer. Her participation in the soundtrack of the drama was not enough to satisfy fans, and in fact triggered more curiosity and anticipation. According to her agency, she is spending most of her time recording songs and will meet fans early August.

Trot singer Jang Yoon-jeong is also returning to the music scene with her fourth album early next month. Trot is a genre of Korean pop music and Jang was one of the youngest trot singers to bring the rather old genre into the spotlight. The 28-year old singer swept the nation with her easy-to-follow lyrics and fun melodies. This time, Jang is coming back with the same delightful tunes, but fusing in the Twist.

Her album's title song is "Jang Yoon-jeong Twist" and is expected to bring the Trot and Twist to a whole new level. These sexy singers are expected to bring a more fresh and unique style to the comeback scene.
