However, it remains unclear whether inactive member Seunghan – who has been on an indefinite hiatus since November 2023 – will return to the group at any point in the coming year. Notably, the full release of ‘Siren’ does not include the singer’s vocals.

‘RIIZING’ will also mark RIIZE’s second music release of 2024, following the single ‘Love 119’ in early January. The song is their third in a string of singles, following their debut with ‘Get A Guitar’ in September and ‘Talk Saxy’ in October.

In other K-pop news, Big Bang star G-Dragon will make his return to music sometime in the second half of 2024. It will mark his first solo release in about seven years, since he released his self-titled EP ‘Kwon Ji-yong’ in 2017, as well as his first since leaving YG Entertainment.
