South Korean group Highlight is making a comeback after almost three years of hiatus due to mandatory military service.

Xportnews reported that Highlight’s management, Around US Entertainment, confirmed the news with this detail: “Highlight is preparing a new album aimed for a May release.”

The group will also star in an online reality show to premiere on 16 April.

Formed in 2009, the group was originally named Beast and composed of members Yoon Doo-joon, Yang Yo-seob, Lee Gi-kwang and Son Dong-woon, Jang Hyun-seung and Yong Jun-hyung.

Initially thumbed down as “a group of recycled material,” Beast went on to achieve commercial success and critical acclaim.

It became one of the most awarded groups of all time at the Golden Disk Awards, the Seoul Music Awards and the Melon Music Awards.

Jang Hyun-seung left in April 2016, and Yong Jun-hyung in March 2019.
