Why Did Lovelyz Disband?
Lovelyz, under the banner of Woollim Entertainment, is one of the most popular K-pop bands. The band made their debut in 2014 with the album Girls’ invasion. Baby Soul, the main vocalist, and rapper was the leader of the band.
Alongside Yein, the other members were Baby Soul, Jiae, Jisoo, Mijoo, Kei, Jin, and Sujeong.
However, seven years post their debut, the girl group decided to start afresh. In other words, they confirmed the rumors of disbandment. Except for the Baby Soul, the others chose to discontinue their contracts with the company.
On November 1, 2021, they took to Instagram to officially announce their split.
“This is our official statement regarding the expiration of Lovelyz’s exclusive contracts. Our exclusive contracts with the Lovelyz members will expire on November 16, 2021. After long and deep discussion and deliberation, seven Lovelyz members have decided to prepare for different beginnings at new places, and we decided to respect and support the members’ thoughts. Of the Lovelyz members, Baby Soul has renewed her contract with faith she has built up with us for a long time.”
Their sweet vocals and girlish charms have led to fan-following of 422k followers on Instagram. In addition to their several hits, the most recent mini-album was ‘Unforgettable’ released in September.
