Surprise, surprise. It seems like BIGBANG won’t be the only Korean idol boy group to make a comeback this year as INFINITE announced that the group will finally make a comeback in Korea this coming May.
The group made their comeback announcement during their large-scale fan meeting “INFINITE Rally 2” at the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium on 28th February.
There were approximately 16,000 fans gathered at “INFINITE Ralley 2”, where the group spent time performing and interacting with fans through a talk show style segment. During the event, the group dropped hints about their comeback through a teaser video, which was later uploaded onto their official YouTube channel.
According to Korean media outlet Naver (via Soompi), INFINITE’ s leader Sunggyu said:
As you saw in the video earlier, we are currently planning to make a full group comeback in May. We will be able to greet you all with a brand new album. We have been on our Arena Tour in Japan these days. We know fans are sad that we released a new song in Japan but we will release a new song in Korea as well, so please look forward to it a lot.
It’ll be INFINITE’s first comeback as a 7-member boy group since the release of their repackaged album “Be Back” in July 2014.
According to Seoulbeats, this isn’t the first time INFINITE made such announcement because during last year’s “One Great Step Returns’ concert, the group revealed that Sungyeol will team up with L and Sungjong to form a sub-unit named INFINITE F. The sub-unit made their official debut in December before Hoya and Dongwoo’s January comeback as the hip-hop subunit, INFINITE-H.
The group’s comeback concept can be seen in the teaser video but it doesn’t reveal much about the comeback. Thus, it is unclear whether they will be launching a new studio album or releasing a new single. More specific details will be shared in the coming month as they are expected to drop a few more teaser videos or photos before May arrives.
