Jungwoo Trends As K-Pop Singer Is Reportedly Returning From Hiatus for NCT 127 Comeback Album

K-pop boy band NCT 127 is reportedly due to release a new album later this year and will be joined by Jungwoo, who has been hiatus since last year following health concerns, local media report.

The band's comeback was reportedly confirmed by an official from SM Entertainment, the band's management company, according to News1 Korea. However, the website of SM Entertainment has yet to post a statement about the group's return.

NCT 127 is reportedly "preparing for a comeback in full" and Jungwoo is expected to return with the group "with a healthy appearance" around six months after announcing his temporary break from activities last August, South Korea's SPOTV News reported.

Work on the forthcoming album, the name of which has yet to be unveiled, is reportedly nearly complete, with an album cover shoot in progress, according to SPOTV News.

The latest album will be the first release by the boy band since the EP We Are Super Human in May last year.

Fans of NCT 27 have been sharing messages on social media, excited for the upcoming return of Jungwoo. The term "Jungwoo" has been trending on Twitter.
