K-pop boy group BIGSTAR have announced their disbandment.
The group have chosen to part ways after seven years, as they prepare for their contracts to expire. In an official statement from their agency Brave Entertainment, the agency confirmed that after discussion with members, they've chosen to officially conclude BIGSTAR activities.
It correlates with the end of Feeldog, Sunghak and Jude's contracts, which all expire in July, and won't be renewed. Members Baram and Raehwan still have time on their contracts due to their military service.
The agency has said they will discuss future activities with the two remaining members. In their statement they also said:
"We express gratitude to Feeldog, Sunghak and Jude who are leaving the agency, and we will sincerely cheer on their paths ahead.
We sincerely thank the fans within and outside of Korea who have sent lots of love and support to BIGSTAR over the past seven years". Read the full statement here.
BIGSTAR debuted in 2012 and released three EPs during their career, most recently in 2015 with Shine A Moon Light. They were seen last year on survival show The Unit, which four members participated in, with Feeldog promoting with the winning group, UNB.
