Wonder Girls Yubin and Hyerim left JYP Entertainment after in-depth discussion. As a result, all of the ‘second generation girl group’ Wonder Girls have left their home, JYP and have the ‘second act’.
JYP officially announced on the 28th that the exclusive contract with Yubin and Hyerim has expired on January 25th. JYP said, “We have had in-depth discussions over the last few months, and we will not proceed with re-contracting with each other.”
Wonder Girls debuted in 2007 and was the representative of the ‘2nd Generation Girl Group’ who was active at home and abroad. Wonder Girls, who left many popular songs such as ‘Tell Me’, ‘So Hot’ and ‘Nobody’, entered the U.S. in 2009 and became ‘Nobody’ for the first time in K-Pop’s Billboard single chart ‘Hot 100’ by entering No. 76.
Among them, Sunye and Sohee officially left the team in 2015, and Sunmi and Ye Eun left the team without re-signing in early 2017. Sunmi and Ye Eun also left the JYP, and the Wonder Girls declared their official disbanding for the 10th anniversary of their debut.
Sunmi is currently at MakeUs Entertainment, Ye Eun is at Amoeba Chulcheol, Sohee is at BH Entertainment, and Sunye is at Polaris Entertainment. Yubin and Hyelim’s attitude has not been decided yet.
