Could the hotly anticipated comeback be nearer than we thought?
Singer DEAN is gaining attention after his seemingly “Ingenious” ways of possibly teasing a comeback.
After debuting in 2016 with the 130 Mood: TRBL EP, DEAN swiftly rose to fame thanks to his addictive voice, and netizens became obsessed with his releases.
Yet, after a huge period of no news from DEAN, many thought he was close to retirement. After what seems like forever since his last release… it seems like a comeback might be closer than ever.
Last month, there were small signs that DEAN might be having a comeback, with a stylist posting a photo of the computer folder named “DEAN.” It was followed up by another picture saying “DEAN Album Cover.”
Everyone, the time might have come !
Dean has been cooking for a while now, and seems like his comeback is coming sometime soon 👀
