The popular K-pop girl group GFRIEND is no longer friends with Source Music. The music label Source Music has confirmed that the group hasn’t renewed its contract with the music company in a statement to the South Korean media. The current contract will end on May 22 this year.
Sadly, Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB, and Umji have decided to go their separate ways with Source Music. Having said that, the future of the band is still uncertain.
In a statement to Weverse, Source Music said,
For the past six years, GFRIEND has won the boundless love of K-pop fans through a wide range of concepts, performances, and songs that marked a new generation of girl groups and music. We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to GFRIEND who have allowed Source Music to accompany them on their journey.
GFRIENDS made their debuted in 2015 with their first mini-album, “Season of Glass.” It was released by Source Music, followed by their popular song “Rough,” which topped the Gaon Digital Chart the first time. Source Music was eventually bought by Big Hit Entertainment, which now operates under the name HYBE.
To date, GFRIENDS has dropped 10 mini albums and three full-length records. The latest project the group worked on was “Walpurgis Night,” which was released back in November last year. It featured the hit single “Mago.”
We would like to deeply thank all BUDDY (the group’s fandom) and fans who have shown their love for GFRIEND, and we ask that you give your unchanging love and support to the members who will begin their adventures in new and diverse areas. Source Music will always continue to cheer for the members as they take the first step towards new beginnings.– Source Music
