Korean boy group Super Junior will reportedly return as a 9-member group.
Reports from Korean entertainment websites Allkpop and Soompi said Label SJ, the group's agency, announced the members who will be part of Super Junior's comeback, slated in the latter half of the year.
According to Label SJ, members Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Siwon, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun will take part in Super Junior’s 9th album.
Members Sungmin and Kangmin will not be part of the comeback and will instead focus on individual activities, the agency added.
The long-awaited comeback comes after the group's youngest member, Kyuhyun, finished his military service last month.
This is also the group's first comeback after all its members have finished their mandatory military service.
Super Junior debuted as a 12-member group in 2005. They had 13 members at the peak of their career, with two other members, Zhou Mi and Henry, as part of its sub-unit, Super Junior-M.
Their last release was "Lo Siento" in 2018.
