20 Aug – It was reported that after five years, CSJH The Grace's former member Stephanie will make a solo comeback.
As reported by Allkpop website, representatives of her current agency, Media Line stated, "Stephanie had been preparing her solo album in secrecy and she will release a new song as soon as September."
They added, "Stephanie is currently practicing her choreography and recording. Her comeback track will most likely be a dance track."
In 2007, the singer suffered from a back injury while preparing for a Japanese concert with CSJH The Grace and had to rest for six months. However, the injury has long healed and An official said, "Stephanie has been treated for her back injury and is ready for a comeback. But she is still a teacher at SM Entertainment, and so the two sides are discussing on how to release the album."
It was also reported that although she is signing with Media Line, her contract with SM Entertainment is yet to expire, thus the singer's first album will be co-produced by both agencies.
In 2005, the singer made her debut with girl group, CSJH The Grace, alongside members Dana, Lina and Sunday. After her back injury that occurred before a Japanese concert in 2007, the singer went through a long recovery and has been active as a ballet dancer back in Los Angeles.
