Days away from their fifth anniversary, K-pop girl group SPICA is calling it a day under their current company.
After five years together and numerous struggles to gain recognition from the wider K-pop community, SPICA’s agency CJ E&M announced Feb. 6 that the group will disband. Despite immense talent and one of the best K-pop songs of 2012, the group never gained a foothold in South Korea and SPICA’s members reportedly opted to end their contracts with the company prematurely.
Though touted as a disbandment, SPICA’s post-break up plans have yet to be decided; CJ E&M said it was not “clear yet” whether the five will part ways or move onto another agency together. In the meantime, the company will determine how to finalize things as the contract comes to an end.
