To talks of AOA Seolhyun's contract renewal going around, FNC Entertainment has stated, nothing is confirmed as of now.

A representative from FNC Entertainment said, "It's too early to say anything about the contract renewal. There are further things to discuss. There is still plenty of time left on Seolhyun's contract." Additionally, when asked about the rumors related to ChoA's decision to leave the group, the representative replied, "ChoA's issue of departure and its related situation takes priority."

Do you think Seolhyun should resign with FNC Entertainment or move onto another agency?

seolhyun's personality is that she cant be alone. She and her members have said so repeatedly, how she yearns for human contact all the time when they are in their dorm. I can't really see her suddenly wanting to leave all that and live alone whiel leaving the label that made her huuuge by prioritizing her over her group

But, the *reason* that FNC Agency is "prioritizing" SEOLHYUN ahead of *other* AOA members for CF Ads and Photo Shoots ; is that SEOLHYUN is the clearly the BEST VISUAL of the AOA Group. The *same* thing happened with SUZY and MISS A Group ; in my view. And for COMPLETELY VALID *profit maximizing* reasons for the K-pop Agencies involved (FNCe ; JYPe).

not the best visual, but rather "deemed as the best visual by the general audience".

Crap! And here i thought they had all signed at the same time/year :(

If Seolhyun goes, AoA will become A-no-A.

k_fierce Friday, June 30, 2017

I thought they (AOA) had until may 2018?

KT2016 Friday, June 30, 2017

RIP AOA... I have a feeling that Seolhyun won't renew.. I hope AOA can at least try one more comeback

FANHUACHENG KT2016 Friday, June 30, 2017

without main vocal though, probably impossible

intricate Friday, June 30, 2017

have a real bad feeling about this...

popularity is everything, reading comments about them being a flop blah blah isnt always the point, yes it nice for them to be succesful and on the top, but if they are producing good music to their loyal fans its all good. Look at at t-ara they still manage to put out great songs for 5 years dispite all they went through for their loyal fans, even 9muses put out killer songs for their fans.

I think the group can survive without Seolhyun since you can easily replace the visual of the group. Being the visual of a group take you but so far. But losing Choa is a massive blow to their group... I know there's singers in AOA but none of them blow like Choa so I don't know what's gonna happen music wise... Disbandment might be in the making.. I wish Choa and Seolhyun the best tho...

@sweetmacaroons said --> "I think the group can survive without Seolhyun, since you can easily replace the visual of the group."... <-- I *doubt* that AOA Group could afford to lose SEOLHYUN. Because SEOLHYUN doing all that CF TV AD work ; did add *CONSIDERABLE* VISIBILITY to AOA Group in general. It was like 'Who is that? Oh, she's with AOA Group.' Sure AOA Group could continue with NO SEOLHYUN ; but the *impact* would be SIGNIFICANT, as I see it ... Does NOT seem to me like AOA Group has say the *same* VISIBILITY as say WONDER GIRLS Group. When WG lost SUNYE and SOHEE as members ; that was a *significant* impact. BUT, the WONDER GIRLS 'brand name' was *strong* enough that WG could be reformed as WG4 and keep going. And WG4 *succeeded* ; but it was NOT ever the success level of the original WG6 unit with their string of HIT songs. So, NOT sure that AOA Group has *remotely* the same 'brand name' strength that WG Group had it.

Actually what you said is the greatest misconception fans have about Kpop because as a business it doesn't work that way; unless the main vocal is also the visual they are immensely more replaceable than the visual because its the visual that makes the most money, Choa said as much only in December, she said 'I can't earn as much as Seolhyun even if I work 10 hours.' This is the sad reality about Kpop and how it makes money where music is the cherry on top and not the cake because its popularity that makes money not music and if you want to see this in real time just look at at Wanna One, they haven't released a single song but it's full steam ahead on the CFs.

krell forgivemenot1 Saturday, July 1, 2017

@forgivemenot1 <-- You make some *good* points. There are some *exceptions* ; I would say AILEE is a POWER VOCAL of moderate VISUAL appeal. But yes, as example, GA-IN (B-E-G Group) is of *moderate* VOCAL skill ; and a *very* appealing VISUAL. HYUNA (4MINUTE Group) surely falls into that category too. And SUZY (MISS A Group) also ; in my view.

forgivemenot1 krell Saturday, July 1, 2017

Of course there are 'some' exceptions but as a rule the visual's job, the entire reason why such a position exists in a 'music group' is to gain fans/attract CF's this is why SUZY, UEE, NANA, Seolhyun, Nara and so forth who are average to good singers at best are often the most successful/richest/highest earners in the group, if the main vocal is sexy as well they can do well like Taeyeon and Hyoseong but they are rare and the exceptions, most don't fall into that category and are the ones overlooked when people talk about the group.

if seolhyun doesn't renew they'll probably just disband

krell nxu02 Friday, June 30, 2017

Yes, AOA Group would seem as say MISS A Group with NO SUZY ... *NOT* sure any K-pop Fans of AOA Group would be much 'excited' by that notion (AOA = NO SEOLHYUN).
