Demobbed Hoony may join Seungyoon, Jinu, Mino for Winner comeback
Lee Seung-hoon, or Hoony of boy band Winner, was discharged from military service on Friday.
Hoony enlisted in April 2020 as a social service worker.
Last August, YG Entertainment announced that Hoony renewed his contract with the company for another five years.
As Winner’s Jinu, or Kim Jin-woo, was also discharged in December, fans are expecting the band to return with new music.
Winner’s Mino, or Song Min-ho, also hinted at the band’s comeback when he said “Please look forward to 2022 as we are preparing to return as Winner,” during a press conference for the release of his album “To Infinity.” in December.
Hoony debuted in 2014 as a member of Winner along with members Seungyoon, Jinu and Mino. The band was formed through Mnet’s survival music program “WIN: Who is Next” (2013). The band is known to produce and choreograph its own songs. Hit songs include “Empty” (2014), “Baby Baby” (2016), “Really Really” (2017) and “Millions” (2018).
