Polaris Entertainment has confirmed the departure of K-pop girl group Ladies' Code from the label.
The trio (Ashley, Sojung and Zuny) has decided not to renew their contracts with the entertainment agency, but will retain the Ladies' Code name.
Polaris Entertainment said that after careful discussion with the three members regarding their contracts that were about to expire, they had decided to not re-sign. The agency asked that fans continue to support the members in their future activities.
Ladies' Code's leader Ashley has shared a message to her Twitter confirming the news and saying that the girls will be focusing on individual projects for the time being. She wrote: "The girls and I have decided to put a halt on our Ladies' Code promotions to focus on our individual growth. I honestly feel like I'm letting you guys down and feel sorry that we couldn't share more memories together but I hope you guys will continue to support Sojung, Zung and me on our new journeys."
Ladies' Code were formed by Polaris Entertainment in 2013 as a five-member group consisting of Ashley, RiSe, EunB, Sojung and Zuny. In 2014, members EunB and RiSe passed away after the group was involved in a car crash. Ladies' Code returned as a trio in 2016 and has since released two EPs and one single album.
The group most recent comeback was in October 2019 with EP, Code#03 Set Me Free. Check out our interview with them from 2019 below.
