NMIXX Jinni has left both the group and the company, according to JYP Entertainment.
JYP Entertainment made a formal statement on December 9 stating that Jinni would no longer be an NMIXX member due to “personal reasons,” and that her exclusive contract has been ended.
As a result, NMIXX will now carry out all of their duties as a six-person group.
JYP’s full statement is as follows:
“Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
Jinni, who has been a member of NMIXX up until now, will be leaving the group because of personal circumstances, and her exclusive contract has been terminated.
We apologize for giving many fans cause for concern with this sudden news.
As a result, we are letting you know that NMIXX will carry out all of their future scheduled activities as a six-member group.
We ask that you give a lot of encouragement to Jinni, who will be walking a new path, and we also ask that NSWER [NMIXX’s fan club] give their warm support to the six members who will continue to grow and race towards their dreams.
Once again, we apologize to the fans who have given [NMIXX] so much support.
NMIXX made their debut as a seven-member group in February of this year with their first single album “AD MARE,” which includes the title song “O.O.” This means Jinni left roughly ten months after her debut.
Following their February debut, NMIXX collaborated with DreamWorks Animation’s Gabby’s Dollhouse to release a Korean version of “Hey Gabby!” on May 2, along with the B-side song “Sparkling Party.”
NMIXX made their first comeback seven months after their debut with their second single album “ENTWURF,” which includes the title song “DICE.” “ENTWURF” shattered their personal record for first-week sales, selling twice as many copies as their debut single album “AD MARE” from September 19 to 25.
