Apink’s Jung Eun Ji and Oh Hayoung appeared on Ask Us Anything Fortune Teller and shared their concerns.
In the recent episode of KBS Joy’s Ask Us Anything Fortune Teller, which aired on August 3, Jung Eun Ji and Oh Hayoung appeared as guests and mentioned their worries about renewing the contract.
“This is the 10th year since Apink’s debut,” said Jung Eun Ji. “The girl group usually goes through the ‘7 years curse,’ but for us, that period has already passed. How can we continue on longer?”
Apink made their debut and signed a seven-year contract, and later re-signed a three-year extension contract.
Both members added, “To be honest, keeping the name Apink was more important than money or conditions. If you leave for other companies, we can no longer use the name Apink.”
After hearing that April next year is the season to discuss re-signing, Seo Jang Hoon said, “The most important thing is to set guidelines in advance, such as how much members feel about working together, the conditions you want, and your satisfaction with the agency, etc. The most important thing is that the team has to speak in one voice. If we don’t get along, the team as a whole gets weaker.”
Lee Soo Geun blessed Jung Eun Ji and Oh Hayoung, saying, “Apink will last for a long time. Be together the next 20 or 30 years.”
Fans also showed their supports.
“I want all of you’ll to stay together, but I will support each and every one of you no matter what.”
“I hope they keep the name Apink even if they all leave to other companies.”
