Singer Hyeon Jin-yeong is set to return to the limelight after five years away.
The 41-year-old pioneer of Korean hip hop is set to release an EP in August, his first record since Paradise in 2007.
As well as a new single, Hyun is in talks about a position on the singing-survival show "I Am a Singer". The entertainer may compete against other singers on the second season of the MBC program.
The show is said to be gearing up to include a singer from a genre it has not had to try to increase ratings, so Hyun is a strong candidate.
Hyun spent the most of last year losing weight, going from 127 kilograms (280 pounds) to 70.
In all, the singer apparently is ready to step back into the spotlight, with his agency expecting big things from him.
"Hyeon Jin-yeong is set to come back hard; he will appear on variety shows, too, and it will be like he is back in his prime again", said Hyun's spokesperson from the agency.
