Gyeongju World in South Korea have announced a new shuttle coaster for October 2021 called Valkyrie! No mention of manufacturer or model yet, but it looks like a Gerstlauer family boomerang model.

Native South Korean here:
"최강" mentioned in the construction walls means "ultimate" or "powerful" in Korean, so I do not expect a family boomerang here.
It must be a large thrill shuttle coaster, and its actually quite surprising that the park is already getting a new coaster 3 years after their Griffon dive machine.
Maybeee a Premier/Gerstlauer launch since Intamin shuttle launch machines are quite expensive and they probably do not have a budget for a coaster that large.
