Former 9MUSES Member Kyungri To Part Ways With Star Empire After 7 Years
Kyungri will be parting ways with her agency Star Empire following the expiration of her contract.
On July 31, Star Empire officially announced that Kyungri, who joined the agency in 2012 as a new member of 9MUSES, would not be renewing her exclusive contract.
The agency’s full statement is as follows:
Hello. This is Star Empire.
We are informing you that our exclusive contract with our artist Kyungri has ended as of July 31, 2019.
We recently spent a long time engaged in serious conversation ahead of the expiration of our exclusive contract, and after careful discussion, we have decided not to move forward with contract renewal.
After joining 9MUSES as a member in 2012, Kyungri has been peerless in working hard and doing her utmost in her activities. She had a precious and meaningful relationship with our agency, in which we went through both good and bad times together.
We sincerely thank Kyungri for spending the past seven years together with us, from 2012 up until now.
We also want to thank the fans who have always given their love and support to Kyungri and who were with her for the entire time during which she was with our agency.
Although our time together has ended, we will be sincerely cheering Kyungri on as she walks her own path in the future.
After undergoing a series of changes to its member lineup, including the addition of Kyungri in 2012, 9MUSES ultimately disbanded in February of this year.
We wish Kyungri all the best in her future endeavors!
