What happened to NCT 127 star Jungwoo? A look at his temporary breaks from the boy band
The singer vanished from the scene from some time and his fans have been speculating about his whereabouts on the Internet
K-pop fans are gradually taking over the world and bands like BTS, Blackpink, NCT and others are more like demi-gods for the Army, Blinks and legions of followers. A mere mention of any singer from these groups is enough to get fans rallying to support their star.
Pop star Kim Jung-woo aka Jungwoo, who is an important member of NCT 127, is loved by K-pop fans all over the world. The 22-year-old rapper started making his name in the industry around 2017 and since then he has only climbed the ladder of success. However, the singer vanished from the scene for some time and his fans have been speculating about his whereabouts on the Internet. NCT 127 is managed by SM Entertainment and the band originally consisted of seven members i.e. Jaehyun, Yuta, Taeyong, Mark Lee, WINWIN, Johnny, Haechan, Taeil, Doyoung. In September 2018, Jungwoo was introduced as the tenth and the latest member.
Where is Jungwoo?
In August 2019, Jungwoo started taking breaks from his schedules citing health reasons. The fans of the talented vocalist had started getting worried when Taeyong, who is also a part of NCT 127, had addressed the issue back then assuring his fans that Jungwoo will surely make a return and currently he had to focus on his health. Taeyong had also assured Jungwoo’s fans that his health was improving.
Fans eagerly waited for Jungwoo to make his comeback while the news circulated that NCT 127 was working on a new album. Switch to January 2020, Jungwoo fans finally took a sigh of relief and rejoiced when the singer made a comeback on Twitter and posted a tweet for the first time since his long health break. His ardent fans celebrated his comeback via tweets and welcomed him with open arms.
According to an exclusive report from AllKpop, NCT 127 is gearing up for its first full comeback of 2020! The report says that the members have already wrapped up their comeback album jacket photoshoot and an official comeback announcement will be coming soon.
Will Jungwoo make a comeback?
As per reports, Jungwoo is active right now and posted his last update on lysn bubble — a messaging platform for artists and fans — on September 7, and his recent appearance on NCT Daily Channel was on September 6.
NCT 127 was reportedly working on a new album that was supposed to hit the market later this year and Jungwoo was about to join the band in the project. If rumors are to be believed, the band is all set to drop a new Japanese album in December. Isn't that good news for fans? While there has been no official announcement yet, we can only wait and watch for the updates from the official team or from the singer himself.
