According to a statement released by Kithewhale Entertainment, they have decided to disband the group and several members of the group decided to terminate their contracts with the agency, with some staying in the agency as well.
Hello, this is Kithewhale Entertainment.
We would like to sincerely thank the fans who have loved ENOi. We would like to inform everyone our official position regarding the termination of the exclusive contracts of some ENOi members and the disbandment of the group.
After a series of long, in-depth discussions and deliberations with the members, we have decided to terminate the exclusive contracts with Avin, J-Kid, and Jinwoo prior to the expiration of their contracts on January 31. Laon, Dojin, Hamin, and Gun will remain with the company.
We would like to apologize to the fans who have always supported them for these unfortunate news.
It was a decision they carefully had to make, so they thought a lot about it, and in the end, we have decided to respect the opinions of the ENOi members. We concluded that the disbandment of the group and termination of their contracts was necessary.
Laon, Dojin, Hamin, and Gun expressed their desires to remain with our agency, and we will actively support them for their personal activities, and we will also provide our support for more varied promotions.
Also, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to Avin, J-Kid, and Jinwoo. Even though they left our agency, and our official contract with them ended, we will sincerely support the path they take in the future.
Since it is an important issue, we sincerely apologize for the delay in delivering the news to our fans, as this was a careful decision we had to make. Lastly, please continue to support the future of Laon, Dojin, Hamin, and Gun, and the departing members Avin, J-Kid, and Jinwoo.
