Additionally, this August comeback would mark Red Velvet's first return in about a year and six months since the release of their repackaged album "The Reve Festival: Finale" in December 2019.
Red Velvet has been inactive as a group in the K-pop scene after launching "The ReVe Festival: Finale" as member Wendy had a stage accident on Dec. 25 during her solo rehearsal at the 2019 SBS Gayo Daejeon.
Because of this incident, Wendy sustained injuries, specifically face injuries and fractures in her wrist and pelvis on the right side of her body. She quickly underwent emergency treatment and stayed in the hospital for rehabilitation and recovery.
Wendy partially returned to the group after eight months. She participated in recording their SM Station single, a cover of BoA's "Milky Way." The song is part of a project commemorating BoA's 20th anniversary of her debut. The track was released on Aug. 21 last year.
Red Velvet came back as a full group on Jan. 1, when the "Psycho" singers performed at the SMTOWN Live "Culture Humanity" online concert.
SM Entertainment is yet to release an official statement confirming Red Velvet's comeback in August.
