Se7en’s return met with criticism

Singer Se7en is making a comeback with a new single on Sunday, after a two-year hiatus, but his return has been met with a mixed response.

On Thursday, the singer announced that his upcoming single “Scared” would be coming this week. The release comes two years after his latest album “I Am Se7en” in 2016.

While many fans of the singer welcomed the news, commenting “I’ve been waiting for your return” or “I’m looking forward to your new song,” there were others who were not pleased with his return, referring him as “Se7en from the massage parlor.”

The singer, who debuted in 2003 with the album “Just Listen,” came under fire when he allegedly visited a suspicious massage parlor while serving his mandatory military duty in 2013. He was given a 10-day military jail sentence by Korea’s Ministry of National Defense.
