SEOUL - In their absence, upstarts like BTS took over the K-pop boyband throne.
Now, Super Junior are ready to reclaim their place at the top.
Fans are in a tizzy after singer Kyuhyun completed his mandatory military service on Tuesday (May 7), the last in the 12-man boyband to do so.
"Please look forward to the music and concerts that we will share together in the future," he posted.
He dangled a carrot, adding: "My singing has got better."
Super Junior singer Kangin was the first to enlist in 2010.
The boyband's strategy of forming smaller sub-groups - to target various musical genres - kept the brand name intact while members fulfilled their military service.
Kyuhyun is scheduled to reunite with his fans in a meet-and-greet on May 19.
He should be well-rested by then.
"I am going to sleep so well tonight, sleep about 10 hours, sleep until noon. When I wake up, I'm going to laze around for two hours," he posted about his immediate post-military-service dream.
