As of now, Super Junior members Leeteuk, Kim Heechul, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, and Sungmin all have completed their military duties, with Eunhyuk and Siwon being discharged in July and August respectively.
Most recently, Ryeowook entered the army last October and is scheduled to complete his duties in 2018, while Kyuhyun will be going later this year. Nonetheless, the group's main motive in getting together in the second half of this year is to release their new album.
In addition, Super Junior released a special album titled 'Magic' in September of 2015 to commemorate their 10th anniversary since their debut a decade ago. It will have been be two years since the group gets to reunite with their beloved fans.
