JYP Entertainment Releases Statement On DAY6’s Group Activities For New Album
On April 19, JYP Entertainment issued a statement on DAY6’s group activities for their new album, “The Book of Us: Negentropy – Chaos swallowed up in love.”
Hello, this is JYPE.
First, we would like to sincerely thank My Day [DAY6’s fandom name], who have always cherished and thought of DAY6.
Because the fans had waited a long time for a full group album from DAY6, the members were able to do their best and complete production on this new album.
It would have been best if all the DAY6 members could have met My Day through group promotions, but as you know, leader Sungjin is unable to participate due to his enlistment in the military. As a result, there are several unavoidable difficulties associated with group activities for this album.
We regret to share such unfortunate news with My Day, but we felt that it would be more meaningful to show DAY6 as a full group. After long and in-depth discussions with the members, it was decided that the members would be taking a break from group activities for this album.
The agency will continue to actively support DAY6 as a group, as well as the members who work hard at their individual activities. We will emphasize care of our artists so that the members can show a good side of themselves to My Day.
Once again, we ask for the understanding of My Day who have been waiting for DAY6’s activities.
In May 2020, DAY6 temporarily suspended full group activities due to members who were suffering from symptoms of anxiety. In August 2020, Young K, Wonpil, and Dowoon formed the subunit Even of Day. “The Book of Us: Negentropy – Chaos swallowed up in love” is DAY6’s first full group album since their May hiatus.
