Is Twice's Jeongyeon coming back? 'Sudden Attack' promo video sparks rumors of singer's return
JYP Entertainment had announced the news of her hiatus a few days ahead of the group's comeback with their sophomore full-length album, 'Eyes Wide Open'
Since October last year, fans have been pining for missing Twice member Jeongyeon. The K-pop girl group's agency JYP Entertainment had announced that Jeongyeon will be on an indefinite hiatus. But rumors of her return are trending on Twitter as a new promotional video featuring Twice began circulating online. The best part, Jeongyeon is in it!
JYP Entertainment announced the news of her hiatus a few days ahead of the group's comeback with their sophomore full-length album, 'Eyes Wide Open'. The agency revealed Jeongyeon has been dealing with anxiety, citing mental and physical health, and that she wouldn't be participating in the group's upcoming activities.
"Currently, Jeongyeon is experiencing psychological anxiousness in moving forward with her schedule," JYP said in a statement on October 17. "Therefore, after deep discussions with Jeongyeon herself and other Twice members, we have decided that it is needed for Jeongyeon to have sufficient rest and absolute stability, accompanied by professional medical measures." According to a Korean-English translator and Twice news updater as well as a fan channel on Twitter, Jeongyeon has still shown an eagerness to return and promised to make some sort of appearance this year.
"Let's meet again in 2021. Do not get hurt or sick in the meantime. Promise!" the singer said earlier. She also noted, "There's a lot of things I couldn't do for ONCE this year. I'll do double the amount for you next year for sure. Next year we'll definitely talk face to face Thank you ONCE Happy New Year in advance!" Check out her comments below.

Her words held came true on January 6 when a new promotional video for the group dropped on YouTube, titled 'Sudden Attack'. The video is in Korean and might be difficult for English viewers to understand, but it is certainly refreshing to see Jeongyeon together with Twice again and she looks bright, pepped-up, and healthy. Here's hoping for an imminent return of Jeongyeon's health and music.
The near-two-minute clip has assured fans and left them excited to see the 24-year-old Twice member again. "I didn't understand but I love seeing all 9 of them together 💛🧡," said a fan on YouTube while another wrote, "I really missed jeongyeon since she was diagnosed with anxiety."
On Twitter, one fan shared, "It's my birthday today.. and this is the best birthday gift," along with a screenshot of Jeongyeon from the video. One fan notes, "JEONGYEON BLACK HAIR SO THIS MEANS THAT THIS VIDEO WAS PRERECORDED NOT LONG AGO RIGHT??? OMGGG IM GLAD I SAW HER AGAIN."
One fan added, "Our Jeongyeoniee is here!!!! I miss her very much, this is such a blessings to start 2021 with Twice OT9 video!! I miss my girls complete in one room."
