kep1er disband

K-pop girl group Kep1er are still in talks for a contract extension, their label WAKEONE has confirmed.

Earlier today (April 25), South Korean news outlet Star News reported that Kep1er will disband in July as originally scheduled, with the members returning back to their respective agencies thereafter. Dispatch had previously reported that the K-pop act were in discussions for a contract extension earlier this month.

The temporary girl group – comprising Yujin, Xiaoting, Mashiro, Chaehyun, Dayeon, Hikaru, Huening Bahiyyih, Youngeun and Yeseo – were formed through the 2021 reality show Girls Planet 999. Star News had also claimed that the girl group would release new music and hold a concert to bid their fans farewell before their official disbandment.

However, WAKEONE has since refuted the report in a statement to The Korea Times, saying that it is “currently having discussions with the members and their agencies over the extension of Kep1er’s musical activities.”

In other K-pop news, South Korean entertainment giant HYBE has said that it will file a complaint against executives of ADOR, including CEO Min Hee-jin, over a breach of trust and other allegations. The move comes amid a growing dispute between HYBE and the management of ADOR over control of the K-pop agency.

Meanwhile, boyband AB6IX have announced the dates for their upcoming 2024 ‘Find You’ fan concert tour, featuring concerts in South Korea and North America this May and July, respectively.

Elsewhere, former BBGirls member Youjoung has addressed her “sudden” departure from the K-pop girl group in a new Instagram post, saying that her decision was something she “contemplated hundreds and thousands of times”.
