K-Pop fans have had a hard time this year, what with all the departures and disbandments of their favourite idol groups.
And when rumours of Suzy leaving miss A surfaced on several Korean online communities yesterday (Thursday, 3rd November), fans panicked, which was understandable.
The rumours stated that the singer-cum-actress would be leaving the group to pursue a solo singing career. The group will then be reorganised, and one of the trainees who didn’t make the cut for TWICE will be added as a permanent member. The name of the trainee was undisclosed, but the according to the rumours, the public would already be familiar with her as she was in Mnet’s reality show, “SIXTEEN”.
Fortunately for miss A fans, JYP Entertainment was quick to respond. They explained that the rumour was just that, and had no basis to it. When questioned on Suzy’s solo debut or miss A’s comeback plans, the agency simply explained that nothing concrete has been decided.
miss A debuted in 2010 with 2 Chinese members, Fei and Jia; and 2 Korean members, Suzy and Min. However, earlier this year, Jia did not renew her contract with JYP Entertainment and left the group on amicable terms.
It has been more than a year since the group released an album, and the members have been active in individual activities. Suzy recently concluded her drama “Uncontrollably Fond“, Fei released her solo album “Fantasy“, while Min joined 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon for a SM Station track, “Born To Be Wild“.
