Fans of the K-pop supergroup have been hungry for something new from the band. They have been on hiatus and will return to their music career in 2025. The group has mandatory military service for the South Korean military. Still, their creative endeavors have not stopped entirely with the superhero series. It should give the ARMY something to taste while their favorite group return from military service.
