K-pop girl group SPICA is said to be disbanding after failing to shine in the music industry in five years.
CJ E&M, the group’s agency, announced recently that it has decided to cancel the members’ contracts.
“There is time left on SPICA’s contracts, but we have recently decided to cancel their contract for each others’ advancement. The team is currently going through the process of disbanding,” a representative from the agency said, according to ENewsWorld.
The group, composed of Boa, Narae, Sihyun, Jiwon, and Bohyung, debuted first under B2M Entertainment in 2012 before going to CJ E&M in 2015.
However, during a radio show on Feb. 7, Narae said SPICA is not officially disbanding, saying that what is ending only is their contract with the agency.
She said for now they will be concentrating on their personal activities but she hopes that in the future, the five members will be together again.
The group’s last single was “Secret Time” released in August last year.
Last month, JYP Entertainment announced that the Wonder Girls have disbanded and their farewell song was released on Feb. 10. Before this, 2NE1 disbanded last November.
