Lovelyz Disbanded? Members Leave Woolim; Fans Hope For New Start
Fans speculated in October that Lovelyz may have disbanded and left their label Woollim Entertainment. Because the label was concentrating on their other groups; the third-gen girl group’s activity had substantially decreased.
Even the members, like the fans, have expressed a desire for additional comebacks. The K-pop group’s most recent album was released a year ago. With only one month until Lovelyz’s contract with Woollim expires, fans questioned if the band would break up.
Woollim issued a statement on November 1 that more or less confirms this storey. They stated that their contract with Lovelyz was set to expire on November 16th. The members had a lengthy conversation with the label; and their future with the band is in doubt.
Woollim will lose seven of its eight members. Only Baby Soul, who is also the group’s leader; appears to be renewing her contract with Woollim. Jiae, Jisoo, Mijoo, Kei, Jin, Sujeong, and Yein’s contracts with the label will not be renewed.
Woollim shared, “The 7 members of Lovelyz will start anew in a new place”. Regarding the member who stayed back, they added, “As a supporter of Baby Soul, who has been with us for a long time, we will not spare out full support for Baby Soul’s new leap forward and future activities.”
It should be recalled that when their contract expired in March; their popular boy group Infinite was in a similar scenario. The majority of the members departed the label after a forced break, although the group is still together.
Fans hope that the same can be done for Lovelyz; and that the group will not be forced to separate due to the fact that the members are represented by different agencies.
