T-ara Leaves MBK Entertainment Without Disbanding

T-ara has now officially left the agency MBK Entertainment.

On January 3, Hyomin let fans know about the group’s situation via a letter on Instagram in which she stated that the members have said their farewells to MBK Entertainment after ten years at the company. However, she assured fans that they will be thinking of ways to see fans again in the future.

Read Hyomin’s letter to fans below:

“I’m writing to you for the first time in a while at New Year’s. You’re doing well, right?

“We said farewell last year to our company that we’d been with for the long time of 10 years. But don’t worry. Although I can’t tell you anything concrete yet, our members will be able to be together, wherever or whenever.

“The members are all taking some time for themselves and relaxing for the first time in a while. We decided to carefully consider how we can prepare many opportunities for us to be able to be together with fans in the future. Of course, we are also going to be meeting our fans individually as well.

“I feel grateful once again for the things I’ve been taught during that time, ever since when I was young and just thought that it was a given that I’d receive love, to now when I’m starting again despite the knowledge that I won’t be able to receive love.

“Also, I’m nervous and excited about a new start, but to be honest I’m also a bit cautious because saying farewell to the company after going through joys and sorrows with them for 10 years feels like breaking up with a lover you’ve been with for a long time, when starting a new love right away is scary.

“Also I want to say to our fans that I’m sincerely grateful for your endless support during the past ten years, even though this isn’t the end. Also, you worked hard!

“Fans, I’ll have good news for you soon so please don’t worry too much, and please wait.

“I hope that you achieve everything you want to in 2018, and happy new year!”

새해를 맞아 오랜만에 인사드려요. 잘지내고 계시죠? 저희는 작년을 마지막으로 10년이라는 긴 시간 동안 함께 했던 회사와는 이별을 하게 됐어요. 그치만 걱정은 마세요. 아직 구체적으로는 말씀 드릴 순 없지만 멤버들은 앞으로도 어디있든 언제든 함께 할 수 있을 거에요. 멤버들 각자 오랜만에 자기시간을 갖고 여유도 부려보며, 어떻게 하면 앞으로 팬분들과 함께 할 수 있는 자리를 많이 마련 할 수 있을지 진중히 고민해 보기로 했어요. 물론 개인적으로도 팬 여러분 많이 그리고 자주 찾아 뵐 예정이에요. 누군가로부터 사랑 받는 것이 당연하다고만 생각했던 어렸던 그 때 부터, 사랑 받지 못 할 것을 알면서도 다시 시작 하는 지금까지 많은 가르침을 준 그동안의 시간에 다시 한 번 감사하게 되네요. 또 다른 시작에 설레기도 하지만 10년이란 긴 세월동안 동고동락했던 회사와의 이별에 마치 오랜시간 만난 연인과 헤어진 후 바로 또 다른 사랑을 시작 하기엔 겁이 나듯 조심스러운 부분이 있는것은 사실이에요. 그리고 팬 분들께는 비록 끝은 아니지만 일단 10년이란 시간 아낌없이 응원 해 주신 것에 진심으로 감사하단 말 꼭 드리고 싶었어요. 그리고 모두 고생하셨습니다! 조만간 좋은 소식으로 찾아 올테니 팬 여러분들 너무 염려말고 기다려주세요. 그럼 2018년엔 하시고자 하는 일 모두 이루시고 새해 복 많이 많이 받으세요!

A source from MBK Entertainment has stated, “It has been decided that T-ara’s Hyomin, Eunjung, Qri, and Jiyeon will not be re-signing their contracts.” It was explained that their contracts ended in December of 2017.

The agency also clarified that the group is not disbanding. This follows the expiry of Boram and Soyeon’s contracts last May, after which they did not participate in the group’s latest comeback.
