Singer Eun Ji-won will be making a comeback as a solo singer for the first time in four years, YG Entertainment announced on Thursday.

The agency uploaded a teaser image to its official website on Thursday morning, featuring only the singer’s name and the comeback’s date - June 27 - without any additional details.

“This is Eun Ji-won’s first solo album to come after he joined YG Entertainment,” the agency said.

“The album will carry many songs, as he has been preparing for this album for a long time.”

Although he’s now more famous as a TV entertainer, Eun was the leader of boy band Sechskies from its debut in 1997 to 2000, when the group disbanded.

He later formed hip-hop group Clover in 2011 and released many solo tracks - such as “Adios” (2007), “Siren” (2009) and “Trauma” (2015) - while working on numerous TV programs.

Eun joined YG Entertainment in 2016 after Sechskies members reunited as part of MBC’s program “Infinite Challenge.”

The band released its fifth full-length album “Another Light” in September 2017, its first album in 18 years.
