Following Changmin’s discharge, TVXQ will embark on the TVXQ! Asia Press Tour in Seoul on Monday. The duo will visit three Asian cities to meet the press and fans and announce the resumption of its activities.

Super Junior, originally an 11-member group, is scheduled to release a new album in October as a seven-member group called Label SJ, without Kangin, Sungmin, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun.

The four members are absent for various reasons. Kangin was arrested for driving under the influence last year, while Sungmin has been criticized for not communicating with fans. Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, who enlisted in October 2016 and May 2017, respectively, are still serving their military service
