The disbandment news was posted on January 23 via LC9 official fan cafe where Nega Network stated that the members' contracts expired on December 21 of last year and the members have decided not to resign with the agency.
The post stated, "From here on out, we will support and encourage the former members as they forge their own paths not as members of LC9, but as individuals. We extend our gratitude to the fans who have been waiting for LC9 all this time, and we are deeply sorry to have to share this unfortunate news with you all."
The last official update on LC9's social media pages was back in February to celebrate Jun's birthday.
E.Den, a former member of LC9, who left the group prior to disbandment mentioned LC9's separation via Twitter rather nonchalantly and shared appreciation to the fans who stuck with the group.
So apparently lc9 disbanded. Honestly everyone saw this coming. I just wanna thank the fans that supported and the members for being awesome— Eden ?? Park (@hyungjin_eden) January 24, 2016
