But it is yet unclear whether Solji will participate in the related activities of the new release, such as promotional events and TV appearances. She has been take a break since last December due to hyperthyroidism.

“(Solji) is now well enough to sing, but her condition is still not well enough to participate in other activities. We’ll have to see but as of now, it looks like she will just participate in the recording process,” an official from the agency said.

Anticipation for the main vocalist‘s return has been high among EXID fans, particularly after she made a surprise appearance at the band’s Seoul concert on Aug.12.
