Hit 90's girl group S.E.S. will return to the K-pop scene after a 14-year hiatus with a new song, its agency said on Wednesday.

The South Korean dance-pop trio, with members Bada, Eugene and Shu, will drop single "Love [Story]" on Monday, the band's management S.M. Entertainment said in a press release. The new song's release date, Nov. 28, was the day S.E.S debuted 19 years ago.

"Love [Story]" is a remix of S.E.S.' past hit "Love," the title song for its third full-length album released on Oct. 29, 1999. The song was composed and written by S.M. Entertainment's hit producer and songwriter Yoo Young-jin, who has created songs for many hit S.M. artists such as H.O.T., BoA and TVXQ.

The new single is part of S.E.S.' comeback project "Remember," which will kick off on S.M. Entertainment's digital music streaming channel Station.

The group will also hold its own concert, called "Remember, the Day," as part of the project, at Sejong University in eastern Seoul on Nov. 30 and 31.

After the concert, S.E.S. will roll out a special album on Jan. 2, 2017.

Since its debut in 1997 with the LP "I'm Your Girl," S.E.S. gained fast popularity among K-pop fans until its disbandment in 2002. With its biggest rival Fin.K.L, which debuted in 1998, S.E.S. emerged as one of the key first generation K-pop idol groups, along with boy bands H.O.T., Sechs Kies, Shinhwa,
