Girl group Lovelyz has officially been confirmed to disband.
From before, there were rumors that the girl group Lovelyz would most likely be disbanded due to the absence of group activities for a long time.
On Monday (01/11), there was a report stating that all Lovelyz members except Baby Soul had decided not to renew their contracts with the Woollim Entertainment agency.
After receiving the report, Woollim Entertainment immediately released their official statement:
“Hello, this is Woollim Entertainment.
This is our agency’s official statement regarding the expiration of Lovelyz members’ exclusive contracts.

Out of all Lovelyz members, Baby Soul, who built his trust in us over a long time, has renewed his contract. As management of Baby Soul, who has been with us for a long time, we plan to provide full support for his new leap and future activities.
We would like to thank the eight Lovelyz members who have given their best and enlightened 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 support, care for, and love Lovelyz.
