The label issued the following statement:
"Hello, this is Happy Face Entertainment. We are writing to let you know that Dal Shabet members Serri, Ahyoung, and Subin's contracts have ended.
Their exclusive contracts with Happy Face Entertainment will end in 2017. They will be leaving Happy Face Entertainment to show more charms they have that they could not show while being Dal Shabet members.
We talked about renewing contracts with the three members for a while, and have decided to support their new future. However, Happy Face Entertainment will continue to manage Serri on 'The Unit' until the end.
Serri, Ahyoung, and Subin's new road does not mean that Dal Shabet is disbanding. All the members are currently discussing openly about Dal Shabet, and we will let fans know when details are set. Serri, Ahyoung, and Subin have been with Happy Face Entertainment since the company's foundation, and we have built fondness and memories as family. We are more than a little sad to see the members that we have been together with for a while, go.
However, Happy Face Entertainment will remain the three members' sturdy support, and cheer for them unchangingly. Please show them love and interest so they can shine anywhere. We are sorry to relay disappointing news to everyone watching over Happy Face Entertainment. We promise to continue to do our best in the future. Thank you."
Woohee, who joined Dal Shabet a little later, will continue to be with Happy Face Entertainment.
