Kim Jaejoong To Make 1st Domestic Comeback In 4 Years

Kim Jaejoong is officially making his long-awaited return!

On November 28, C-JeS Entertainment announced that Kim Jaejoong was gearing up for his first Korean release in four years.

“Kim Jaejoong is confirmed to be releasing a new album sometime in mid-January of next year,” stated a representative of the agency. “As Kim Jaejoong has not been active [in the Korean music industry] for a long time, we predict that music industry insiders and fans will be keeping their eye on him following the news of his January comeback.”

C-JeS Entertainment also announced that Kim Jaejoong would be embarking on a concert tour of Asia to celebrate the release of his new album.

Kim Jaejoong’s last Korean release was his second studio album “No.X,” which consisted of songs recorded before his military enlistment and was released in 2016. Since then, the JYJ member has been focusing on his acting career and his music promotions in Japan.
