At the end of 2017, all of the former members of SS501 except Kim Hyung-jun, who was serving in the military, gathered in Japan and discussed the possibility of a reunion. Although nothing is decided yet, the four members were seriously considering making a return as a full group and had a positive outlook on the idea. They went as far as to discuss the practical details of a potential comeback including the release of new music and plans for a concert.

SS501 debuted in 2005 and has not released an album since Destination in May 2010. If the group reunites after Kim Hyung-jun’s military discharge, they will have their first release in nine years. However, because the members are currently affiliated with different agencies, returning as a full group is expected to take a considerable amount of time and planning.
