The two members' contract with MBK Entertainment is soon coming to an end. The label revealed that there will not be a renewal of contracts and also recently announced that Boram and Soyeon will not be participating in T-ara's last album before disbandment.
Fortunately, fans had the last chance to see all 6 members together at T-ara's concert. Earlier today, it was confirmed that T-ara will be holding their first concert in Taiwan with all members including Boram and Soyeon. However, the latest reports reveal that the two members will not be participating in T-ara's concerts in Hong Kong and Japan on May 20 and 24.
To Sports Chosun, a rep from MBK Entertainment expressed disappointment and frustration on their absence, and stated, "Boram and Soyeon notified us about their absence. It is a schedule that's set on the date after their contract termination but it has been planned several months ahead. It is unmannerly of them to unilaterally not attend. It's an act that breaks the promise with the fans as well as the agency."
The rep continued, "We have wished the best for the future of Boram and Soyeon who have promoted as T-ara for the past 9 years. It's unfortunate how things are coming to an end like this. With Boram and Soyeon's absence, the event planners overseas and the agency are going to face severe damage. And out of all, it's an irresponsible act that breaks the promise with the international fans who have waited for T-ara's last promotion as a whole."
