On January 5, 2023, it was officially revealed that THE BOYZ, a fourth-generation K-pop group, would make a return in February of this year. The group is presently preparing for their forthcoming album, which will not only be their first album of 2023 but also their first album as a group after the return of group member Eric from his absence. Be Aware, their latest album released approximately six months ago sadly did not include Eric, who was on hiatus due to health difficulties.
However, after a well-deserved relaxation, Eric resumed his duties as a K-pop star with the December 22 release of 4:03, a solo tune for his birthday (Jet Lag). Fans who missed seeing Eric perform on stage with the band are looking forward to the reunion, which promises to be jam-packed with thrilling activities.
“HAPPY TEARS RN”: Fans respond to THE BOYZ’s return and Eric’s homecoming.
Fans couldn’t control their enthusiasm after learning that THE BOYZ would make their return in February 2023 with all 11 members. Eric also revealed on his Bubble platform that he would be joining the members for a full-length album release after the release of THRILL-ING in 2021. Though this is the K-pop idol’s first comeback with THE BOYZ since his return, all 11 members already participated in the December 6, 2022 release of All About You, a winter single. However, seeing the idol perform live adds to fans’ enthusiasm, and many have been raving about it on social media.
While many fans are excited about the new album, others have reminded Eric of the unsolved plagiarism matter. Despite the fact that there is enough evidence that the song 4:03 (Jet Lag) feat. DAVII unintentionally or knowingly copied B.A.P.’s Coffee Shop, neither the corporation nor the idol has addressed the matter. Even THE B’s (THE BOYZ fans) believe that a genuine conclusion to the matter is required to cleanse the air. In other developments, THE Bs reacted well to THE BOYZ’s current track, All About You. Following Sunwoo and Eric’s sabbatical, fans were overjoyed to see them resume their activities. Furthermore, the delicate melodic sounds and nostalgic music video with all 11 members sent listeners on an emotional roller coaster.
With a new album on the way, THE Bs are excited to see what the ever-changing K-pop boy group has in store for them. They are especially looking forward to theatrical appearances since the group is well-recognized for its inventive and original choreographies.
