Girl’s Day’s Sojin To Leave Dream T + Agency Denies Disbandment

Following reports about Girl’s Day members’ contracts coming to an end, Dream T Entertainment has released an official statement regarding Sojin’s contract and the group’s future.

"Hello, this is Dream T Entertainment. We are relaying our official statement regarding the reports related to Girl’s Day today.
Sojin’s exclusive contract with Dream T Entertainment is expiring in February 2019 and the decision to not renew was made.
The remaining members (Yura, Minah, Hyeri) also have contracts expiring this year, so they are in discussion with the company in many ways.
There is no intention to disband Girl’s Day’s group activities. We are seeking ways for the group to do activities together in the future.
We ask for a lot of support so that all of the members can be more active and branch out into diverse activities.
Thank you."

I hope they can make it work with a better company/companies representing them! Dream T was shady af at the best of times and I'm not surprised they don't want to stay

yea I was surprised they didn't have any releases, especially when all hope was lost in 2017 for I'll Be Yours and they surprised us with it.

something & expectation are essential to any and every kpop list. and their minis were always solid. at one point i was a pretty big gsd fan tbh, so it's sad to see that they will be most probably disbanding.
it also seems like a logical choice at this point of their careers but it makes me feel even more sad to see how fast kpop recycles through ggs and fans always want newer and shinier things.

If they’re able to still meet up in a future and do at least a couple songs, I’d be grateful for even that lol. But I figured things would change, I’m sure Sojin is ready for new opportunities as she’s in a different place in her life.

My fav songs are (not in order) - Do Tell Me,Ring My Bell, Macaron, Darling, Top Girl, Come Slowly, With Me, Hello Bubble, I’ll Be Yours, Thirsty, Kumbaya, Truth, Twinkle Twinkle, Something, Dont Forget About Me, You Don’t Look Elsewhere, Hug Me Once (or One More? I see it under two titles)

...apparently a lot of favorites! They’re a great group.

I got into them too late (Something was the one that drew me in), but I enjoyed their music. they'll probably not be performing their songs together anymore, since Sojin is not young and probably does not want to do dance numbers anymore.

hopefully they do get together for some collaboration that doesn't require performing. and at least the members all managed to get their own individual spotlight in their time together

You found them at the perfect time! Their first few years were a bit rough (though I like some of their earlier songs a lot) and the first songs they got popular for aren’t really my favorite either. I actually prefer their later years so much more, like 2014-2017

I'd be sad to see them disband but then again, they havent released anything in aaaaages.

I hardly listen to them these days but they had so many good songs???
minho_lover 11th-Jan-2019 03:55 pm (UTC)
noooooo, i love and miss girls day too much right now!!! i do wish for all of their happiness so whatever happens, i wish them all the best

fave songs? something, i dont mind, expectation, i'll be yours, darling
i love all their songs tbh (besides their debut track lol)

It sucks that their promised comeback kept being delayed... Sistar were really lucky to have the opportunity for a goodbye song. It really sucks for Girl's Day. Though Dream T has always been shady so that's no surprise
Good luck to her! and good luck to the other girls. I'll miss Girl's Day and it's always sad to see girl groups disband quickly but I am mostly expecting it by now :(
ashdevilrun23 11th-Jan-2019 06:49 pm (UTC)
another 2nd gen group disbanding :(( and i thought they would come back soon
Darling is my ultimate fave.. expectation, thirsty, something, i'll be there they have a lot of great songs

my fav song of theirs will always be Expect bc i heard it when i was first getting into kpop and it got stuck in my head so bad but i couldn't remember the name or the artist, so i was desperately searching like "what's that girl group song that goes like ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh-ooh"
also the suspender dance is still SOOO sexy ugh
goshipgurl 11th-Jan-2019 10:16 pm (UTC)
they didn't even give us one last comeback :(

i still remember their debut when people shit on them for being weak singers
aeries_amethyst 11th-Jan-2019 11:03 pm (UTC)
Noooooooooooo Sojin is my bias T_T Expectation was the song that made me a stan *O* Everything about that era was glorious! \o/

I wanted another comeback from these girls OTL This is like Secret all over again where they said they were working on a contract and then the members leave before anything comes of it >_<

I wish Sojin the best, maybe she can practice engineering now if she decides to retire from the idol business.

Another good group lost /sigh I hope we still can see the girls around, esp Minah since i really enjoyed her solo. Their last mini was super solid and it sucks they don't get a proper farewell
volume1995 12th-Jan-2019 01:42 pm (UTC)
I Am A Woman Too was so good especially the I love u love u love u~ part
krissasaur 14th-Jan-2019 03:09 pm (UTC)
I hated Minahs solo, but she deff needs to stay in music. Her voice is amazing and I know she could make it if she tried.... though maybe now it is a little too late? But I really hope she will stick around because ilhsfm despite that solo not being my cup of tea.

She also acts, I can see her being able to do acting and maybe releasing singles like some other actor/singers do.

their last few releases were so good. i'm bummed. :(
volume1995 12th-Jan-2019 01:42 pm (UTC)
i sincerely hope this doesnt mean the end of hyeri and yura going on tv shows cause they were truly funnier than anyone else :(

ive heard of Twinkle Twinkle when the endoftheyear mashups came out but i only got into girls day when Don't Forget Me came out and i loved it sooo much cause it was such an electro-heavy pop track which you don't hear a lot in kpop and then they came back with Expectation and that made me a stan :( Whistle, Thirsty, Darling, Expectation and Don't Forget Me are my favs
aures 12th-Jan-2019 04:58 pm (UTC)
i'm still salty we never got that promised comeback
evilcoc0nut 13th-Jan-2019 05:32 pm (UTC)
Idk it sounds to me like they're probably gonna disband since they all want to promote as actresses. Disappointed, but not surprised. My favorite songs are Something and Thirsty.
krissasaur 14th-Jan-2019 03:06 pm (UTC)
I need to stop liking girl groups. Every girl group I care about has issues.

I just need Minah back in my life.
