Two members of EXID have chosen to leave their agency, Banana Culture Entertainment.
Hani and Jeonghwa have parted ways with the agency, as all members' contracts were set to expire at the end of the month. While Solji, LE and Hyelin have resigned with the agency, Hani and Jeonghwa have chosen not to renew their contracts.
Banana Culture have confirmed the news but stated that EXID are not disbanding, and that the company are looking into ways the group can continue in the future. In their official statement, the agency stated that Solji and LE are preparing to promote as solo artists and Hyelin is planning to move into broadcast and music activities.
They also stated: "EXID is an important group to Banana Culture as well as the fans, and as such, we are not thinking of this as the group disbanding. The members are also thinking of it more as a turning point from which they can take on new challenges".
