On February 10, an official post on IN2IT’s fan cafe announced that the group’s exclusive contract with their agency MMO Entertainment has been terminated.
The statement reads:
We express our deep gratitude to the many people who have cherished IN2IT, and we inform you that after coming to a mutual agreement with the members, the IN2IT members’ exclusive contracts have been terminated as of January 31, 2020.
We were happy and grateful to be able to work together with Yoo Jiahn, Jeong Yeontae, Hwang Inho, Han Hyunuk, Isaac, and Lee Inpyo for the past five years and more.
We ask that IN2U [IN2IT’s fans] continue to warmly show interest and support for IN2IT’s future path, which will continue independently.
The rights for this fan cafe and social media accounts will be transferred to the IN2IT members and they will be managing them.
We ask for your understanding over the potential inability to post on the fan cafe while the rights are being transferred (this will take a maximum of one week).
IN2IT debuted in 2017 after being formed through the survival show “Boys24.”

This comes after member Sunghyun left the group in September (omona post). In his words "I am beginning to think that going on Boys24 and coming out of that harsh survival program to debut as IN2IT was a poisoned chalice for us."
I'm just hoping that none of the members had to pay such a high termination fee as Sunghyun did.
