Despite an extensive back and forth on the potential of extending contracts, it's been confirmed that JBJ will be disbanding.
The official statement said: "7 months of promotions will be concluded with the expiration of the management contract on April 30".
They added: "Until now, the members, agencies and staff went through honest and serious discussions for a long time regarding the expiration and extension of JBJ's contracts. Many opinions were exchanged, and it was recognised that as the members have to move onto the next page, each of their dreams and futures are also important".
Originally a fan-imagined group of Produce 101 Season 2 contestants, JBJ have achieved great success in a short time, with hit singles "Fantasy" and "My Flower". The latter even earned them their first music show win on Music Bank.
JBJ commented: "Although there is much sadness and nervousness for the future, we accept our current individual situations, and with this, we know well that the only way to live up to the support we have received is to work harder towards different dreams. We once again express our sincere gratitude to fans that allowed for a miracle to occur."
"We ask for your endless support and encouragement for the members that are beginning on a new start line with nervous hearts and for each of our individual activities. We will work hard so that we can promise to improve in the future."
