Girl’s Day gave us a taste of a comeback recently when they had a reunion of sorts to ring in the new year, but while their friendship may be healthy as ever, their future of a group doesn’t appear to be.
Yesterday, SPOTV News reported that all Girl’s Day members were looking to sign on with new agencies after their contracts with DreamT Entertainment expired.
A source from the music industry said, “The members are hoping to work as actresses. They are getting in contact with agencies that manage actors, not singers. Instead of looking altogether, the members are searching individually.”
Notably, the report states that none of them want to move forward as singers.
DreamT eventually released a statement on the report, confirming that Sojin would not renew with the company, but that Yura, Minah, and Hyeri were still in discussions and that Girl’s Day as a group are not disbanded.
Hello, this is Dream T Entertainment. We are relaying our official statement regarding the reports related to Girl’s Day today. Sojin’s exclusive contract with DreamT Entertainment is expiring in February 2019 and the decision to not renew was made. The remaining members (Yura, Minah, Hyeri) also have contracts expiring this year, so they are in discussion with the company in many ways. There is no intention to disband Girl’s Day’s group activities. We are seeking ways for the group to do activities together in the future. We ask for a lot of support so that all of the members can be more active and branch out into diverse activities. Thank you.
Well … that’s a kick in the nuts, huh? The writing is on the wall that they’re headed for disbandment by the end of the year.
Sure, I guess since the girls don’t seem to have any problem with each other there’s always a chance they could reunite even while at different companies, but the members seem like they want to move on from music.
