Some devastating news for GFRIEND’s BUDDY! It’s been confirmed that the 6-member group has decided to not renew their contracts with their agency, Source Music, after being with the company for over 6 years. Source Music, which is a subsidiary of HYBE Corporation, released a statement regarding the shocking news, “After careful consideration and extensive discussion, GFRIEND and Source Music have come to an agreement to follow separate paths to continued growth. For the past six years, GFRIEND has won the boundless love of K-pop fans through a wide range of concepts, performances, and songs that marked a new generation of girl groups and music. We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to GFRIEND who has allowed Source Music to accompany them on their journey. We would like to deeply thank all BUDDY and fans who have shown your love for GFRIEND, and we ask that you give your unchanging love and support to the members who will begin their adventures in new and diverse areas. Source Music will always continue to cheer for the members as they take the first step towards new beginnings.” While it is shocking and sudden news, we at Arambulo Live will continue to support GFRIEND through coverage of any upcoming projects they embark on whether as a group or as soloists.
