SS501 was a popular boy band in South Korea when the Hallyu Wave was in its infancy. Since 2010, the group's members have been focusing on individual activities such as acting, solo music and military duty, but a reunion is something they all hope to have in the future.
Group member Heo Young Saeng made an appearance on KBS 2TV's "Happy Together 3". On the show, the idol stated that Shinhwa, a boy band that's been active for 15 years, gives him hope that SS501 will stick together once military obligations are out of the way.
"When I look at Shinhwa, a group that still gains popularity and hasn't broken up over the past 15 years, it makes me think about my own group. After watching Shinhwa on 'Win Win', I sent my fellow SS501 members a text message. They were also watching the show and had the same feelings as me," Heo Young Saeng said.
Despite not promoting as a group for years, SS501 reassures fans that they haven't disbanded and will come back in time. Before a reunion can occur, the members will have to join the military and serve their mandatory 2 years of service. Kim Kyu Jong was the 1st member to join the military, doing so in July of 2012.
