Girl group Wonder Girls have officially announced their disbandment as a group.
JYP Entertainment made the announcement along with a YouTube video “THANK YOU FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL”.
A statement from the agency read:
“We are here to announce the disbandment of the group that has been always with us for the last ten years, Wonder Girls.
The members have talked amongst themselves and with the company for a long time and the [girls] decided to disband.
Yubin and Hyelim have renewed their contracts with JYP Entertainment and will continue their activities in music and acting as well as other fields.
Yeeun and Sunmi have decided to pave a new path for themselves and have regretfully decided to leave the company.
As a thanks to all the fans who have been with them for 10 years, they have decided to release their last digital single on their 10th year anniversary, February 10th.
We would like to thank the fans of Wonder Girls all over the world who stuck by Wonder Girls in their 10 year-long journey, and promise to help and support both the members who are leaving and staying to help make their future better.
The news comes after the officially disbandment of girl group 2NE1 and 4minute.
Rumours had already begun to circulate in December last year as Wonder Girls’ contract came up for renewal. An update earlier on this month from JYP said that talks were still underway to negotiate a renewal for the group.
