K-pop groups were strangled by their own management companies
The 5 cult groups of Kpop caused a lot of regret when they had to disband because of the management company’s ineffective management.
There are many K-pop artists who file lawsuits against their management company but BAP is a rather special case.
The group filed for contract cancellation in 2014 due to low pay and poor working conditions. BAP then went on hiatus for more than a year, and although TS Entertainment denied this allegation, many other artists continued to “unmask”, eventually leading to the company’s closure in 2021. .
The unfortunate thing about BAP is that they were interrupted right at the peak of their career. Albums First Sensibility in early 2014 topped the Billboard World Album Chart and even won the MTV EMA Award for Best Korean Artist of 2014, beating both BTS and Beast.
However, after a noisy lawsuit with the management company, the group’s popularity and coverage dropped seriously, leading to BAP’s official disbandment in 2019.
Although coming from a famous entertainment company, the most “bloody” in Korea is SM Entertainment, but when it comes to the name f(x) a lot of people feel heartache and pity for the girls.
f(x) took 7 years of operation to have an official fandom name and when the group was no longer active, they did not have their own representative color.
f(x) was once frozen for a long time then exploded again with hit 4 Walls 2015. Many people thought this would be the perfect stepping stone for the group to make a strong comeback, but in the end SM Entertainment did nothing and made the group gradually fade into oblivion.
In interviews, the members all expressed their desire to get back together, but the situation did not allow it. Gradually, each of them decided to leave SM Entertainment to find their own paths and the future of the group was completely “broken”.
CLC is also a case unfortunately neglected by the company. Formed by Cube Entertainment in 2015, the group made a good mark during its early debut period. In particular, the group’s popularity increased sharply in 2017 with the song “Hobgoblin”.
However, instead of following this popular concept, the company gave the group inappropriate songs and CLC’s subsequent comebacks were not very successful. Gradually they received less attention, the group’s last comeback was in 2020.
One member of the group, Yujin, said in an interview that the company had told the group members it would no longer be active, and that the future of many members remained unclear. There has been no official announcement that CLC will disband but some members have left Cube to focus on solo careers.
Debuting in 2017, Pristin includes most of the members who appeared on the hit Mnet survival show Produce 101 and two former members of girl group IOI so many people have been waiting for the future. of this girl group.
The group’s debut was a great success, but then for some reason, Pristin was “quietly silent” for a very long time. Fans were very angry with the management company Pledis Entertainment when they did not allow the group to operate and promote even though the members were extremely talented.
Only in 2019, Pledis announced Pristin’s disbandment, only 3 out of 10 members continued to renew their contracts.
5. Miss A
Miss A is the next case that causes many regrets because despite coming from a large entertainment company like JYP Entertainment, it is not properly managed.
When the appearance of the youngest Suzy received a lot of love and popularity skyrocketed thanks to her acting, many people called Miss A “Suzy and friends”.
Every song the group releases becomes a hit but in the end Miss A stopped working in 2015 and when the members left the company one by one, the group officially disbanded in 2017. Owning a very talented and attractive group, JYP finally let the group go. disbanded in many regrets and controversies.
