Directioners around the world are hoping that a One Direction reunion is still possible even though Niall Horan, Harry Styles and other members already have solo gigs.
Niall Horan recently ventured into the world of sports as he appears on the latest cover of Today?s Golfer alongside golf star Justin Rose. In the feature story, he talked about how his love for golf grew ever since One Direction announced their hiatus earlier this year. He was even game enough to be a caddy for fellow Irishman Rory McIlroy at the 2016 Masters Tournament.
Meanwhile, Harry Styles has reportedly signed a solo recording deal with Columbia Records, who also manages One Direction. He first hinted at going solo last year when he had four solo songs copyrighted with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The tracks were entitled ?5378 Miles,? ?Already Home,? ?Coco? and ?Endlessly.?
Just like how Niall Horan is trying out sports, the long-haired crooner also ventured into a new field. He is confirmed to make his acting debut in the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie ?Dunkirk?. The World War II action-thriller starring Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, and Kenneth Branagh is set at the time of the British military evacuation of the French city in 1940.

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have also been making news, albeit for more personal matters. Tomlinson and his ex-girlfriend, Briana Jungwirth, are currently embroiled in a complicated custody battle over their 5-month-old son, Freddie. On the other hand, the rumor mill has been abuzz over Payne?s brewing romance with X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who is 10 years older than the pop star.
With all four members seemingly busy with their individual lives, some may wonder if they could still reunite for a One Direction reunion. However, this possibility might soon come true due to a recent report that Harry Styles and Niall Horan have been seemingly dropping hints about a comeback.
Snapchat posts from last fourth of July weekend showed Harry Styles with longtime One Direction stylist Lou Teasdale. Around the same time, Niall Horan was seen at Wimbeldon with music video director Ben Winston. Their public outings with people that One Direction have worked with have led to speculations that they are still open to reuniting.
One Direction reunion rumors were also fueled when an official 1D Twitter fanpage claimed that Niall Horan allegedly ?pinky promised? to a fan that they will be back in 2017.
