EXO was previously rumoured to make a comeback on 25th Oct but the plan eventually fell apart due to Luhan‘s lawsuit against the company. Korean media outlet Sports Donga later exclusively reported that the group will make their comeback in January 2015. Despite all the hardships they had gone through, the group is reportedly planning a comeback with a brand new album and the members are gearing up for the album release as it would be the group’s 2nd full length album. At that time, EXO’s talent agency SM Entertainment neither confirmed nor denied the rumour.
It is a highly-anticipated comeback as it would mark EXO’s first comeback in 8 months after the release of their 2nd mini album “Overdose”. It would also be the group’s first comeback without the 2 of its original members, Kris and Luhan.
EXO confirmed their comeback at 2014 MAMA by revealing a teaser video for their new album right after their performances. The teaser video was uploaded to SMTOWN’s YouTube channel at the same time.
2014 was a pretty crazy year for EXO but let’s just hope their comeback next year will mark a fresh start for them!
