Kangin to make comeback in July
강인, 연애활동 재개…다시 슈주로
Kangin, a Super Junior member who has been out of the spotlight for about three years following a drunken assault and during military service, is set to rejoin the band in early July as it prepares to release its sixth album, SM Entertainment announced yesterday.
The 27-year-old Kangin has kept a low profile since being released from the Army in April, but has uploaded pictures of his “diet meals,” which he is sticking to in order to shape up for his return.
Though Kangin’s military obligation was just over two years, he took a break from Super Junior about a year before joining after he was charged with a hit-and-run and embroiled in controversy after violent outbursts while intoxicated.
The last time he appeared with Super Junior was in October 2009.
Despite his absence, the 13-member boy band has been doing well.
The group performed in the United States on May 20 as part of the “SM Town” concert produced by its own agency.
