On Reddit and Twitter, fans are guessing that the collaboration will be between SHINee (SM) and BIGBANG (YG), two of the most legendary second-gen boy groups.
My theory would be
*Either GD, TOP & Onew are running a costume shoot for Elvis thing
*Or they're going to release the cover song of CHFIL
*Or one of this 3 would be doing any of the up options 🤔

First, internet users are claiming that the leaders of the two groups, Onew and G-Dragon (also known as GD), may release something together. This comes after the latter posted a photo of Onew’s recent album, “DICE,” on his Instagram story.
While there’s also a possibility that GD only admires the idol’s works, fans then started giving more “evidence”!
Baz Luhrmann, “Elvis” movie director, posted military photos of G-Dragon and SHINee’s Onew, Key, and Minho and compared them with Elvis’s decision to put their careers on hold to their national duty.
Elvis Monday⚡️ Like Elvis, there are still music artists today who must put their careers on hold to do their national service. The question on their minds remains the same: “What will my career be when I return? If I return?”#ElvisMonday #Elvis #TCB #gdragon #shinee @ElvisMovie pic.twitter.com/s2OXuSD4hA

There are speculations that the two artists will release something other than music.
Lastly, YG Entertainment’s official Twitter account also liked a tweet about 91-liners Minho and Key, who recently gained popularity for their friendship and chemistry.

Will fans finally have a collab between SHINee and BIGBANG? It will surely become an awesome interaction between “Princes” and “Kings” of K-pop!

Apart from this, some clues suggest the collab will be between an SM artist and BLACKPINK.
In particular, SM’s social media accounts started following the quartet’s accounts, such as on Spotify. Interestingly, BLACKPINK is the only non-SM affiliated group followed by the agency!

Another is that SM Entertainment’s CEO, Lee Sung Soo, followed YG artists’ Instagram, including BLACKPINK, TREASURE, and GD. However, he has since unfollowed them.
Some fans are hoping it is BLACKPINK x Red Velvet collab, given the close friendship of the members from both groups. However, other internet users also conveyed their desire to see BLACKPINK with aespa, who are both reigning as top-tier girl groups.
Meanwhile, some guesses suggest that a TREASURE x NCT release may be in the works.
What are your thoughts on this?
