14U has reportedly disbanded. On May 10, it was reported that following the groups concerts in Japan from February to April, 13 out of 14 members terminated their contracts with agency BGent after returning to Korea in April.
According to the reports, the members who have terminated their contracts have left the dorms and will be going their separate ways. A source stated, “The members who have left are said to be feeling apologetic to fans for the hurt this will cause, so they have not been able to speak up about it. Instead, they seem to be sharing updates on social media that they’re on vacation.”
The reports also state there may be various reasons behind the disbandment. It is being said that the members who terminated their contract believe the agency was showing favoritism and was therefore causing conflict between the members due to discriminatory treatment. However, the agency is said to be denying such allegations and believes the members came together and planned for the group to disband.( Collapse )
