Seeing so many people come out on site made me nearly choke up in tears. Also, a huge shoutout to ELFs for waiting patiently after a year and nine months and also everyone who waited by the entrance of the station the entire night!!! I truly am grateful and really love you all so much!! I missed everyone so very dearly."
Eunhyuk further wrote, "We will be walking down the flowery path from now on together! We will do our best to entertain everyone after the long wait, so please just sit back and enjoy the ride! I would also like to thank all our ELFs around the globe for the warm messages!! Thank you so much once again~~And thank you to the reporters who came out early in the morning to write wonderful reports. Please be happy everyone! I love you!" Super Junior is said to be making a group comeback in October, possibly without member Sungmin.
