Don’t lose hope just yet, MyDays! We might still get an OT5 DAY6 comeback!
Over the weekend, American multinational music company 88rising, which primarily focuses on helping emerging Asian artists in America, teamed up with Coachella (also known as The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival) for HEAD IN THE CLOUDS FOREVER Coachella 2022.
Here we are.
HEAD IN THE CLOUDS FOREVER. Coachella Main Stage.

Jae Park (also known as eaJ), who frequently works with 88rising, tweeted that he would “see you at Coachella in 2 years.” So, it seems like he is manifesting it.
I’ll see you at Coachella in 2 years

Previously, Jae performed at 88rising‘s Head In The Clouds 2021 (HITC) music festival, although at the time, he had none of his solo music on streaming platforms other than YouTube and SoundCloud.
Yet, Jae is not the only one who expressed a desire to perform at Coachella. Previously, his fellow DAY6 member Young K revealed on DIVE Studios‘ podcast Daebak Show w/ Eric Nam that DAY6’s dream venue would be the music festival Coachella.
👤 is there any dream venue? Where you like DAY6 to perform someday?
🦊 dream venue? Idk but maybe like dream festival? Coachella? Would be amazing. I've never been to one of them, I've only seen the video since I was young. But I think I really wanna go and perform. pic.twitter.com/9qY3CZyRri

So, naturally, MyDays are manifesting not just an eaJ performance at 2024 Coachella but a full OT5 DAY6 comeback!

By that time, all members will have returned from their mandatory military enlistment, too, so the timing is perfect. Currently, Sungjin is serving in The Republic of Korea Armed Forces, Young K is serving in Korean Augmentation To the United States Army, Dowoon serves in the military band, and Wonpil serves in the Republic of Korea Navy.
2 YEARS MEANING 2024….. 2024 MEANING…. IS EVERYONE THINKING THE SAME AS I AM RN

While most assume that Jae is technically not a member of DAY6 anymore based on JYP Entertainment‘s statement regarding Jae’s departure from the company, there is still hope for OT5.
Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
First of all, we would like to apologize to My Days who have been nothing but completely supportive for DAY6. We are sorry for the sudden, shocking news.
As of December 31, 2021, Jae’s contract with the agency has expired. For personal reasons, he will no longer be a part of the team DAY6. We inform you that we reached this conclusion after through discussion and that we respect Jae’s decision to terminate the contract.
While our relationship with Jae has come to an end, we will always support him in his endeavors and wish him the best on this new adventure he has set on.
Additionally, JYP Entertainment will continue to try its best in managing DAY6’s future activities. We thank you, My Days, for the undivided love and support.

Shortly after the announcement, Jae reassured MyDays during a Twitch stream (ongoing live on January 1, 2022, KST as the agency’s announcement came) that he “has talked to the boys” and that DAY6 will “come full circle.” He confirmed that he is no longer in DAY6 “for now” but insisted that “the five of [them] will most likely be on a stage again.”
“Please trust me, trust Jae of DAY6. If you don’t trust me, trust the boys. I’ve talked to the boys, no worries.” pic.twitter.com/mHOqJuTbke

So, we all really hope that Jae pulls a CL and brings back the entire group at Coachella in the future!
