NU’EST is signaling their return with their first group photo since 2017!

On February 5, a set of photos were shared on NU’EST’s official Instagram account with the caption, “Our LOΛEs [official fan club name], Happy New Year,” to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

These are NU’EST’s first official group photos with all five members together since 2017. The last photo of the group was uploaded by Pledis Entertainment’s CEO Han Sung Soo in September 2017 to celebrate NU’EST’s 2000 day debut anniversary, and the photo was taken on the same day as a photo uploaded by him in July 2017 after Mnet’s “Produce 101 Season 2.”

After appearing on the show, Minhyun joined project group Wanna One while JR, Aron, Baekho, and Ren went on to promote as the unit group NU’EST W. Minhyun recently concluded his activities with Wanna One through the group’s final concert in January, and has since returned to NU’EST. It was recently announced that the five members have renewed their contracts with Pledis Entertainment.
