During a recent press event in Seoul, the remaining members shared updates on Hyun and Doha’s recovery. Huiwon mentioned, “Their determination to return to the stage is firm, but according to medical professionals, it’s a little too early for them to do so. So they are still concentrating on recovery. Knowing their earnest hearts, we also want them to return to the stage as soon as possible.”

Despite the challenges, the group is leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for the comeback. Sungyun, in particular, has stepped up to fill in for main vocalist Doha, showcasing the group’s unity and determination.

The new album, “Happy &,” is a musical celebration of life’s joyful moments. The title track, “Happy &,” encapsulates the anticipation that follows every goodbye. Hanjun explained, “There are many moments of separation in life, such as graduation or quitting a job. While it could be thought of as an ‘end,’ it could also bring about anticipation of what’s to come. That’s the idea behind the song’s title, ‘Happy &.'”
