    SM Entertainment has confirmed preparations for the comeback of the group as a whole unit after member Jungwoo’s battle with ill health.

    K-Pop boy band NCT 127 is currently preparing to make a comeback along with member Jungwoo, the group's label confirmed on 23 January. Jungwoo has been on a nearly six-month hiatus due to health issues and hasn't participated in the band since announcing his leave. SM Entertainment, however, hasn't revealed any details about the upcoming album yet.

    NCTzen (the official name of the group's fandom) took to Twitter to express their joy with the trending hashtag #welcomebackJungwoo.

    ​NCT 127’s last comeback was in May 2019 with their fourth mini-album "We Are Superhuman", which gained a lot of attention not only in Korea but worldwide. The boys have become fast-growing stars leading K-Pop trends and have appeared on popular talk shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live. In addition, NCT127 was the first K-Pop band to participate in the Global Citizen Festival 2019 and was the first K-Pop act to perform at MTV EMA. This year, the group will continue to be a trailblazer in K-Pop: it is scheduled to showcase its stuff alongside such stars as Khalid and Gwen Stefani at the "Rodeo Houston" set to take place in March 2020. Nct 127 will perform for 70,000 people at the event.
