[NEWS]12.04.12 Super Junior’s Kangin returns from the military [3rd Article]

Super Junior’s Kangin is to return from the military.

After fulfilling his two year military service, the Super Junior member is to be released from the military on April 16. Some of the group members and their dear fans are to celebrate the singer’s finishing the military duty.

Kangin has no schedules so far. On April 12, his agency, SM Entertainmanet said, “No schedules have been set for Kangin so far, because Super Junior has no plan for a new album for now. After returning from the military, he will have some time to prepare things with team members.

Meanwhile, Super Junior is on the world tour, titled “Super Show 4.” As the settings for the tour were already finished, there seems to be no way for the singer to get in. So, Kangin is to prepare for the team’s next project.

Kangin was excluded from the team projects because of his scandals in September and October in 2009. After having some time off for reflection, the embattled member joined the army in July of the next year. Other members used to remind us of him, showing their friendship, by mentioning Kangin while he was in the army.

[NEWS]12.04.11 SM Entertainment, “there hasn’t been anything confirmed regarding Kangin’s comeback” [2 articles]

With Super Junior‘s Kangin scheduled for discharge from the army on April 16th, the media reported earlier that he was already preparing for his comeback with the group as soon as possible.

SM Entertainment has followed up with a vague statement to OSEN, expressing, “Kangin is being discharged on the 16th, but there hasn’t been anything confirmed regarding his comeback.”

They continued, “We’re not sure whether the Super Junior members will be able to be at the scene of his discharge. This weekend, they have a ‘Super Show 4‘ concert and have a busy schedule, so it’s up in the air as to whether they will be able to make time for it.”

However, other sources are reporting that when they previously spoke to representatives from SM Entertainment earlier, they had stated, “Kangin is a member of Super Junior, so his return is an obvious one… He will be promoting as a member of Super Junior.”
