South Korean girl group Apink will return with a new album in July.

The K-pop group announced plans Thursday for its first release since the EP Pink Up in June 2017, according to The Korea Herald.

Apink's agency, Plan A Entertainment, confirmed the news in a post Thursday.

"Apink is making a comeback in July," the company said. "It is a comeback that the members worked hard on preparing for a long time, so please look forward to it."

Apink debuted in 2011, and presently consists of six members: Chorong, Bomi, Eunji, Naeun, Namjoo and Hayoung. The group released a special single, "Miracle," in April in honor of its seventh anniversary.

Apink is known for its innocent and girlish image. The group's singles include "NoNoNo," "Luv" and "Five."
