This comeback will be the first time the group is banding together after their five-year hiatus since the release of their sixth full album ‘Holiday Night’ back in Aug 2017. This upcoming release also marks the 15th anniversary of the group’s debut. 

All eight current members of Girls’ Generation are expected to participate in this comeback. Despite members Tiffany, Seohyun, and Sooyoung leaving SM Entertainment in 2017 to pursue solo projects, they are still officially part of the K-pop group.

According to the Naver announcement, Girls’ Generation also has plans to appear on various television shows and reality programs to promote the album.

Many SONEs, Girls’ Generation fans, took to Twitter to rave about the long-awaited news.

Other details for this comeback such as the official album title and actual release date have yet to be announced.
