On December 8, bugAboo‘s label ATEAM Entertainment released a statement that the girl group would be disbanding only a little over a year since they debuted.
BugAboo originally debuted on October 25, 2021 with their self-titled single album. The music video for “bugAboo” earned 10 million views within its first week of release, an impressive accomplishment for a rookie girl group from a small company.
They had one comeback with the single album Pop, which came out on June 13 this year. Sadly, it sold only just over 700 copies, far fewer than their debut album, which sold around 6.5k.

Hello, this is ATEAM Entertainment. First, we would like to express sincere gratitude to the fans who have loved and supported bugAboo. We would like to inform you of the official position of bugAboo’s group activities.
BugAboo, who has been working hard for their fans, will officially end group activities today. The members have had a long discussion about this and have decided to terminate contracts for all members.
Thanks again for the support and we apologize for the sudden news. We ask for your warm love and support for the members who are about to make a new start. Thank you.

We wish only the best for bugAboo’s members — Eunchae, Yoona, Rainie, Cyan, Choyeon, and Zin — and whatever they have planned for the future!
