After parting ways with iKON, B.I has kept a low profile by taking on the role of executive director for IOK Company. Since being spotted doing volunteer work with fans a few months back, B.I had many wishing that he would make a comeback.

Thanks to the teaser EPIK HIGH just dropped, those dreams appear to be coming true.

The news hit home for fans even more when spotting what he wore in the photo. The hoodie wasn’t your average hoodie. It was one gifted to him by fans.

Because it’s been over a year since the idol has released any music, fans are more than ready to hear his voice once more. With the first part of the album dropping on January 18, fans won’t have to wait too long to hear the track.
