5 MONSTA X Members Renew Contracts With Starship + I.M To Leave Agency But Continue Group Activities
Starship Entertainment has shared a statement on the status of MONSTA X’s contracts.
On August 8, the agency released the following statement:
This is Starship Entertainment.
We once again express deep gratitude to the MONBEBE around the world who continuously show love and support for MONSTA X.
Starship Entertainment recently renewed contracts with five of our agency artist MONSTA X’s members Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, and Jooheon. As all six members still have unchanging affection for MONSTA X and MONBEBE, we have come to a mutual agreement for I.M to continue together for future group activities.
Based on the loyalty and trust we have built up with each other, we will put in our full effort for the members’ future activities to shine even brighter. We promise to provide full and systematic support.
We have had sincere discussions with I.M, but our exclusive contract with him will unfortunately come to an end. We express deep gratitude for I.M’s hard work, efforts, and devotion over the years. We will cheer on and support I.M’s future activities and his new path.
MONSTA X has concluded their break of one month. We are preparing with the members in order for them to greet you with diverse group and individual activities.
We ask that you continue to cheer on, send warm encouragement, and support the six members of MONSTA X.
MONSTA X debuted in May 2015. Shownu enlisted in the military last year, and the group most recently made a comeback with “SHAPE of LOVE” earlier this year.
