Red Velvet officially starts their promotion for their upcoming August comeback! In the surprise video teaser uploaded on July 26, all the five members draw attention as they look back to their past releases.
On July 26, SM Entertainment posted a new video on Red Velvet's official YouTube channel with the title "Queens Archive."
In the released video, the members appeared individually. The video also featured Red Velvet's track, "Somethin Kinda Crazy," a song from their first mini-album, "Ice Cream Cake," dropped in 2015.
Irene Appears in Red Velvet Teaser after Hiatus, Praised for Unrelenting Visuals
Following her hiatus, Irene is now officially back promoting alongside Red Velvet members.
In the teaser, the group's leader surprised fans with her visuals. The female star, who appeared first in the video, received positive comments such as, "Irene is so pretty, " "I'm looking forwards to their comeback as a full group," and "I hope Red Velvet does well."
This will be Red Velvet's first full group's comeback in about two years. In 2019, Wendy got multiple injuries from a stage accident during SBS Music Awards rehearsal, resulting in her long break from the K-pop scene for her full recovery.
On July 6, 2020, then, Irene and Seulgi formed a unit and released their debut mini-album, "Monster."
During that time, Wendy was already hinting at her return. However, Irene was caught in an attitude controversy, one of the most probable reasons why the group couldn't make a full group comeback in 2020.
On a positive note, Red Velvet's August return is already receiving great feedback and anticipation. K-pop enthusiasts are now focused on the kind of genre and concept the "Summer Queens" will bring in the music industry, following their hit track, "Psycho."
