In August, Red Velvet will reunite as a whole band after a long time.
According to Herald Pop’s investigations, the group is now planning for a comeback, with an August release date in mind. It’s been a year and a half since their last album, The ReVe Festival’Finale, which featured all of the band members.
As many fans are aware, Wendy took an extended break from the group to recover from an accident she sustained during SBS’s previous year-end performances. Her hip and face bones were fractured as a result of the fall, and she was admitted to the hospital for rehabilitation and recovery.
Since then, the members have released successful solo and duo projects, including Joy’s single “Hello,” Wendy’s debut solo mini-album, Like Water, I&S’s “Monster,” and Yeri’s foray into acting. With their comeback, we can’t wait to see them all together again.
