South Korean boy band U-KISS will be making their comeback ahead of their 15th anniversary.
The group, which was initially a six-piece band, debuted in 2008.
It now consists of three members: Soohyun, Hoon and Kiseop. The trio are signed under the entertainment label Tango Music.
U-KISS saw its fair share of member reshuffles as various members left and entered the group at different junctures.
For the upcoming comeback, however, it is confirmed that six members will be involved in the promotional activities. On top of the three existing U-KISS members, they are Alexander, AJ and Eli.
This will include a mini album drop, slated to happen on 28 Jun (Wed), at 6PM KST (5PM SGT). Pre-orders for the album are now open.
The album will contain a photobook, a CD, photo cards, message cards and a mini-poster. Only those who purchase the pre-order versions of the mini album will get a poster.

The Osaka show follows right after on 30 Jul (Sun), held at Zepp Namba (Osaka).

The boy band previously ranked #1 on the Oricon Albums Chart with Action (2015). And they have a steady following there.
Back in 2012, they also sold out their first Japan live tour. They toured various cities in Japan, including Sapporo, Sendai, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo.
Separately, member Soohyun recently dropped a digital single Fading seasons (2023), produced by South Korean singer-songwriter O.When.
Member Hoon also released his digital single, MEA ROSA (2023) mid last month.
