As the first OT8 comeback of the year, fans are anticipating Ateez’ ‘Fever Part 3’ album. All eight members of the K-pop group will participate and perform, with Mingi finally returning from his six-month hiatus. With Ateez continuing the title track voting tradition, the era has already become legendary. Fans must choose between ‘Eternal Sunshine’ and ‘Deja Vu’ as the album’s title track. And the ‘K-pop Elections’ have been entertaining Atinys. Due to his knee injury and the death of his grandfather, Jongho will be unable to fully participate.
The newest team member had previously suffered a knee injury. Jongho’s label, KQ Entertainment, had to issue a statement assuring fans that he was fine, but that his performance time would be limited. This is why he didn’t dance in the ‘Eternal Sunshine’ and ‘Deja Vu’ performance teasers released by Ateez. On September 8, it was аlso reveаled thаt Jongho’s grаndfаther hаd pаssed аwаy.
