Girl group Brown Eyed Girls has come forth to adamantly deny the reports of the group disbanding.
Earlier today, media outlet Sports World reported that the four-member girl group would be disbanding, as Gain has left Nega Network to join Apop Entertainment and JeA, Narsha, and Miryo‘s contract would be over soon.
Sports World reported that Nega Network was having “financial problems, and album production is realistically difficult,” and that “Gain’s label Apop Entertainment considered recruiting the other members to continue Brown Eyed Girls, but the disagreement among the members nullified that.”
After the article surfaced, the girls’ agencies denied the claim.
Mystic Entertainment, parent company of Apop, announced, “It’s the first time hearing about us recruiting the rest of Brown Eyed Girls. We’ve never even discussed this.”
The girls’ agency Nega Network also told the press that this claim was baseless, adding, “We’ve never talked about it, and it isn’t even worth responding to. The group has events scheduled in July and August. We are working on their next album. This is nonsense.”
JeA took to her personal Twitter to speak up about the news. “Fans were probably taken aback by the absurd news,” she tweeted, “We’re preparing our album right now, what is this? It’s more absurd as the article was so detailed. Even if that day comes, we will tell you ourselves, not like this.”
Previously in March, Gain has also mentioned in an interview that “Brown Eyed Girls is currently planning on releasing an album this summer.”
