MYTEEN Announce Disbandment

Hello, this is The Music Works.

First of all, we express gratitude to the fans who cherish and love The Music Works Entertainment’s artist group MYTEEN.

With trust and respect [for each other], we have had thorough discussion with each member regarding his future direction.
As a result, the final decision was made for MYTEEN to officially conclude two years of activities on August 21, 2019 and go on each of their own paths.

We want to use this opportunity to express our gratitude to the MYTEEN members who trusted [the company] and went with us. We will discuss each member’s future direction and put in our full effort to support them.

We sincerely thank the fans who have given overwhelming love and support to MYTEEN until now, and we ask for continuous interest and unchanging love for the members.
We will also sincerely cheer on each member’s future.

Thank you.

Hello, this is Eunsu.

I had trouble sleeping for several nights thinking about what I should say first.
Worrying that I would forget something to say, I jotted down what came to mind every night, and I am finally writing a letter today.
As of today, MYTEEN has disbanded and will be going our separate ways.

MYTEEN, which I gave my all to pull along as the leader and through which I received a lot of love and anticipation from many people including You”th, has come to an end.
I honestly still feel dazed and don’t know what kind of expressions I should make or what I should say.

I learned a lot after entering Music Works. Meeting great people and pulling all-nighters together to achieve our goal of debuting, all the broadcasts and radio shows that we appeared on with the name MYTEEN, they were all moments that were more valuable than anything.

To be honest, it was difficult to endure the long periods of inactivity, but I was able to endure it because I had You”th who came to watch our performances and cheered us on from far away. It was all possible because we had You”th.
It feels like a couple of days ago that we met, but I am very sad that we are ending after not having met again since our final schedule in January.
I feel so apologetic as there were more days that we were not able to meet than days when we did meet over the three years since “Follow MYTEEN” before debut through our reality program, first album, second album, and activities overseas.
We should’ve gone to show You”th more sides of ourselves more often..but now that time has passed, I feel regretful about the promises we weren’t able to keep. I am sorry for not fulfilling the promise of a letter for our second anniversary.

Taevin, Chunjin, Kookheon, Junseop, Yuvin, Hanseul, I was so happy during our time together.
Let’s just remember the good memories and cheer each other on no matter where we are because I always believe that we will achieve success.

Because we were MYTEEN, because you were You”th, thank you everyone.
All of our Music Works family and senior artists who I have been together with until now, and all of the staff who have worked hard for us, I want to once again express sincere gratitude to each and every one of you.. I ask for lots of support and love for me as I continuously work hard through life!

This is not the end, but the beginning.
Everyone who has supported and loved me, although I don’t have much to offer, you have worked hard.
Thank you, and sorry.

I kind of suspected as much when they announced Yuvin & Kookheon duo ...

MW just kind of seem to be on the verge of implosion, theres been next to no activity from their artists (in fact did Kim Sohee, Myteen or Minzy even get anything beyond a follow up single after their debuts? I know Minzy had to fight to release her English single and obviously that got 0 promotion).

They had really good songs and were picking up a strong fandom before MW dropped the rope. It's a shame but I think we'll hear a lot of artists leaving them soon. At least Yubin and Kookheon might get some promotion, and the other members can get out of their contracts early.

Didn't Baek Jiyoung also not renew with the agency? She's their biggest artist right?

Two years is such a short time, seems like they just gave up on the group. There are nugu groups who have lasted way longer than that. Brb listening to She Bad.

The company was literally founded by her manager with support from her, so I'm sure that her being there was a main draw for the other artists.

yeh i still don't get why Minzy signed with them

She kept going on about how it was a family atmosphere and I can kind of get how it might have felt like that, as a new smallish company founded by the longtime manager of a big name singer with the support of that singer herself. Clearly it just didn't work out longer term.

This is the company Minzy signed with??? She had a pretty anticipated debut and they literally did nothing with it.

Honestly her first year with them wasn't bad? She had more solo activities than she ever had under YG, solo gigs, photoshoots, charity stuff, variety gigs + cast member on Sister's Slam Dunk (these were mean feats considering Minzy was never trained to do variety and has always sucked at it), and then her solo debut had pretty good promotions, it just wasn't a public friendly song. But then it all just suddenly went silent? None of the artists in the company had activities except their independent youtube channel stuff etc. I guess they just ran out of money or something.

This is just so unfortunate. 2 years is very early. It’s also kinda shitty to take the 2 most known members then throw out everyone else

Damn I’d be pressed if my hopes and dreams got crushed just for 2 other members to get the limelight
