TWICE, Oh My Girl, & More, Girl Groups Slated To Re-Sign Or Disband In 2022!
Most of the reasons for the aforementioned disbandment all lead to contract expirations or disagreements, and although disbandment is an eventual fear all musical groups must face, it is still something that fans dread having occurred randomly.
With that being said, here are some K-pop girl groups who are up for contract renewals in 2022:
MBK Entertainment's DIA
Although DIA officially debuted in 2015, the member's contract renewal is slightly complicated as multiple member changes occurred. Notably, the girl group has not been active for over a year, and this could mean that disbandment is looming on the horizon.
DSP Media's April
DSP Media's April is slated for a contract renewal next year, but things are looking bleak. The girl group has been inactive for approximately two years, not long after their bullying issue arose. Thus, April is expected to disband in 2022.
Cube Entertainment's CLC
CLC, one of Cube Entertainment's K-pop girl groups, is slated to have a contract renewal in 2022. But they are noted to not renew as the girl group's inactivity, Yujin's participation on "Girls Planet 999," and Sorn's departure from the label all spell disbandment.
WM Entertainment's Oh My Girl
The seven-member girl group Oh My Girl, which is now one of the most in-demand K-pop groups today, is scheduled to have its contract renewal in 2022. Notably, five of the seven members have already renewed their contracts until 2025.
Fans are now waiting on Oh My Girl's Jiho and to renew their contracts, but netizens are not worried, expecting the two to re-sign next year or sooner.
JYP Entertainment's TWICE
Arguably the most popular K-pop girl group today TWICE will be scheduled for a contract renewal next year. With their joint success as a 9-member girl group, ONCEs are hoping and believing that TWICE will extend their contract in 2022.
