However, it appears the company informed media outlets before the members themselves.

On June 4, several media outlets shared a video of member Hayoung from a radio show discussing the comeback. There, she revealed that she was never aware that the group was preparing an album slated for an August release.

She then revealed that she only caught wind about the comeback from fans. She revealed that the group has not been preparing for a comeback, and she believes the group is not ready for it at all.

Some comments read,

  • “A comeback requires the idols to be ready to sing and dance, so how can the idols involved not know that?”

  • “Why is that company doing such a disservice to their fans?”
  • “Is their contract ending soon? I think they are going to disband.”
