Wassup Members Confirm Disbandment In Heartfelt Messages To Fans

The members of Wassup have announced that they will be going their separate ways.

On February 10, news outlet Sports Seoul reported that girl group Wassup had ended their exclusive contracts with their agency and would be disbanding. According to the report, although the Wassup members’ contracts with Mafia Records had not yet expired, the agency agreed to terminate the contracts for the sake of the members’ futures.

Later that evening, Wassup members Nari, Jiae, and Subin confirmed the news on their individual Instagram accounts.

Nari shared a message of love and gratitude for their fans, writing:

Hello, this is Wassup’s Nari.

We, Wassup, recently terminated our exclusive contracts with Mafia Records.

Although our contracts hadn’t expired yet, after discussing the members’ futures together with the company and the head of our agency, we ended up deciding to terminate our contracts [early] in the hopes of moving forward in a good direction.

I’d been worrying about how to notify [our fans], because even though we weren’t a group that received a lot of love from the general public, I know that there were a lot of people who loved us and thought of us as a unique group.

Although Wassup has disbanded, I will never forget each and every one of our fans in my heart. I’m truly, truly sorry that we informed you so suddenly.

Thank you for cheering us on and spending the past seven years together with us.

I don’t know what direction I’ll be traveling in the future, but as I have always done, I will become a Kim Nari that works hard and does my best.

Thank you.


Jiae also spoke fondly of her time in Wassup, sharing that she planned to remain in the music industry. She wrote:

Hello, this is Wassup’s Jiae.

As of today, we have ended our contracts with our agency.

Originally, our contracts were supposed to end two years from now, but after discussions with the members and our company, we decided to end them [early].

I’m sorry to tell you this so suddenly.

I’m so happy that when I was 17 and knew nothing about the world, I moved to Seoul from Chungju and met the group Wassup. I made seven friends and also gained fans. The past eight years have flown by so quickly that I don’t know where the time went.

Someone once asked me, ‘Why become a singer if things will be like this?’ but I don’t agree. 

There are people who remember us, and we have our fans. I believe that if I was happy during our promotions, then that’s enough for me.

I’m proud that I was Wassup’s Jiae.

However, I’m really sorry to our fans. Because we didn’t get to release many albums, and now we’re disbanding like this…

Waffle [Wassup’s fan club name], thank you so much for everything up until now. It must have been hard for you to be fans of an artist that didn’t promote much. But thank you so much for loving and supporting us anyway.

I intend to keep making music. Nothing much has changed, and I will work hard in a variety of fields. If I was able to become a member of Wassup, then surely I’ll be able to achieve something else, hehe.

I will use these truly amazing memories and experiences as a stepping stone to become a bigger person.

I’ve been so happy [all this time] because of my fans. Thank you so much for everything until now, and please look after me in the future as well.

She added in English, “Don’t forget Wassup. I will miss Waffle.”

Sujin similarly wrote:

Hello, this is Sujin.

First, the Wassup members and the head of our agency have all decided to go our separate ways for the sake of our futures.

I want to say thank you to all our fans and acquaintances who have given us so much support and encouragement up until now.

Although we haven’t yet decided our plans for the future, I think that we’ll soon be able to show you a variety of things.

Thank you for giving us so much love up until now, and I think that I gained a lot of different experiences and learned a lot during my time [in Wassup].

Although I can’t express everything in this brief message, I will continue to promote with a forever-grateful and humble heart.


Wassup debuted as a seven-member group in 2013. Four years later, members Nada, Jinju, and Dain left the group after requesting to terminate their contracts with Mafia Records. The group made their final comeback as a four-member group in April 2017, with the mini album “Color TV.”

We wish all the members the best of luck in their future endeavors!
