It's been said that they're waiting until Leeteuk is discharged from the army later this month, and they are expected to be back in September at the earliest or in October. An SM Entertainment rep added, "When Leeteuk is discharged on the 29th, we're planning to work as fast as possible. We're already recording bit by bit. Super Junior's new album will be out in the fall."
This is definitely exciting news for ELF as it has been about 2 years since Super Junior released an album as well as about 2 years since Leeteuk went on military service.
Yesung won't be participating since he's still carrying out his service, so this has fans wondering if Shindong's participation will be seen in the album. He has already revealed that he'll be stepping down from 'ShimShimTaPa' to join the army, which indicates that his enlistment isn't too far off. A broadcast insider said, "The exact date for his enlistment has not been set yet. Both fans and members hope Shindong will enlist after Leeteuk is discharged so they can promote the 7th album together."
