Six-member idol group 2PM will be making a comeback after nearly two years away from the K-pop scene.
According to JYP Entertainment, 2PM will be releasing their 3rd full-length album within this year. After the group's release of their 2nd album 'Hands Up' in July of 2011, the members have been focusing on their Asia Tour and Japanese promotions as well as other overseas activities.
It was originally planned for 2PM to make a comeback in the second half of 2012, but the plans were postponed due to Nichkhun's DUI incident.
Though full details have not been announced as of yet, it's expected that the 3rd album will be released after 2PM's Japan Arena Tour.
A representative from the agency stated, "Within this year, all the members including Nichkhun will be meeting their domestic fans with a comeback. Though it's early in the year and more specifics can't be revealed yet, we'll probably start announcing more details about the album in 1-2 months."
2PM is currently preparing for their Japan Area Tour, which will start on the 11th at Fukuoka Marine Messe. the tour will include a total of 13 concerts, 6 venues, and more than 150,000 fans are expected to gather. They'll also be releasing their 2nd full-length Japanese album, 'Legend of 2PM', on February 13th.
