While several reports suggested that the band members will be soon parting ways after the expiration of their contract, the agency recently released a fresh statement talking about the future of Lovelyz. They said, “Hello, this is Woollim Entertainment. This is our company’s official statement regarding the expiration of Lovelyz’s exclusive contracts. The Lovelyz members’ exclusive contract with our company is scheduled to expire on November 16, 2021”
It continued, “After a long discussion and consideration, seven of the Lovelyz members (Yoo Ji Ae, Seo Ji Soo, Lee Mi Joo, Kei, JIN, Ryu Soo Jung, Jeong Ye In) have decided to prepare for a new start in a new position, and we decided to respect and support the members’ decisions.”
However, it’s only member Baby Soul who will continue working with the agency. They said, “Out of the Lovelyz members, Baby Soul, based on the long-standing trust she built with us, renewed her contract. As assistants for Babysoul, who has been with us for a long time, we plan to provide full support for her new leap forward and (future) activities.”
“We would like to express our gratitude to the eight Lovelyz members who have given their best and brightened up the company as artists under Woollim Entertainment for the past seven years, and we sincerely support the members with their new start. Also, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the fans who supported, cared for, and loved Lovelyz. We ask that you continue to send lots of encouragement and support to the Lovelyz members who are at a new starting line, and we sincerely thank you for your warm love and interest in Lovelyz over the past seven years” they signed out.
Lovelyz debuted in 2014 with their first full-length album ‘Girl’s Invasion.’ Later the girls went on to release several hits, such as ‘Candy Jelly Love,’ ‘Hi~,’ ‘Twinkle,’ ‘Destiny,’ and more. Their last release as a group dates back to September last year with their seventh mini album ‘Unforgettable.’
