Starship Entertainment announces that Cosmic Girls will continue to promote without 3 members

Cosmic Girls will continue to promote as a group of 10 members.

On December 24th, Starship Entertainment announced that Cheng Xiao, Meiqi, and Xuanyi will not be participating as Cosmic Girls for the new comeback. As reported, the group has released the teaser image for their upcoming album 'WJ Stay?'. 

Due to the girls' promotions as Rocket Girls, Starship Entertainment asked fans to "pardon the continuation of Cosmic Girls" without the three Chinese members. Back in September, the same three members had been excluded from 'WJ Please?' promotions for the same reason.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding Cosmic Girls' January comeback. 

  1. Cosmic Girls
  2. Cheng Xiao
  3. Meiqi
  4. Xuanyi

What does Cheng Xiao have to do with Rocket Girls though? She's not a member of Rocket Girls.

Because the Chinese members are represented by Yuehua Entertainment. And when Starship and Yuehua had a dispute about Meiqi and Xuanyi promoting with RG and CG simultaneously Yuehua won... and now seems to be withholding Xiao from promoting with the group as well as some sort of punishment. They may even be trying to withdraw the 3 girls permanently.

Or more likely Cheng Xiao has her own seperate Chiniese promotions she is going to do so can't participate, not everything has to be a big conspiracy.

I actually agree with this sadly. This is all crazy honestly. China needs to fix their shit and their laws. It ruins a lot of people and China needs to get over THAAD, seriously. THAAD ruins things as well, only because of China being "Anti everyone except North Korea and especially hates South Korea and America."

Again so much misinformation I cant go back to my xmas until i sort this out.


Yuehua never had a dispute with Starship, ever. The dispute was with another major chinese company which also has strong government connections like themselves, Tencent.


Tencent demands were that the two Rocket girl members are exclusively RG members while Starship and Yuehua both demanded that they'll be available also for cosmic girl activities and Yuehua pulled the girls from RG in favor cosmic girl. So the idea of Starship Yuehua conflict is nonsense.


After lenghty back and forth it was reported that Yuehua had "won" against Tencent but their "victory" was more about Chinese saving face culture because right after that both girls returned to RG and are there exclusively like Tencent the "losing" side had demanded.


But NONE of that matters for Cheng Xiao. She has absolutely nothing to do with that conflict.

And its beyond pathetic that Chinese idols are known for running away to China for money once they get fame from Korea.


She has been asked multiple times in fan events if she'll do the same and she always says absolutely no. She never would've come to Korea if that was the plan.


And yet...

She was casted in popular variety show Pajama Friends as main cast that numerous other idols wouldve killed for... she bothered to film 4 episodes and then ran off to China for drama filming.

She missed last promotion, again for China drama and shows even though there was no reason. F.ex at the height of SNSD fame and Yoonas dramas getting 40% rating she still managed to attend everything.


There is absolutely no excuse other than money and greed that she is missing yet another comeback and she's 100% personally betraying the promise to fans to put Korea first.

I understood it that yeuhua signed 2 deals from the start of the show. 1 with starship where the girls were split. A different deal with tencent giving up the kids for 2 years.

Either way Sharship got screwed unless they are getting cash .. which i doubt.

CX espically starship pushed her hard.

I think her contract will end in 2019, she is preparing to leave to go solo.

China offer too much money and opportunity, it's impossible to say NO....

I think it's important to realise that it's the best choice for them (financially) China pay more money

The downside of having Chinese members... Chinese policies make things more complicated. That's too bad though, I really like Cheng Xiao but the disputes with the other 2 Chinese girls just blows.

Maybe this is the best for wjsn future, as the chinese line doesn't belong to starship, sooner or later wjsn will only have 10 fix member. They should start balancing the group as three members left

I'm worried about the China line. If their next comeback is without the China line again, then that's when we should definitely be worried. I don't want anything to happen to them like what happened with EXO. Even Lay hasn't been with EXO lately, which worries me. I honestly wouldn't be surprised though.

Entertainment companies should stop adding Chinese members to their K-pop groups because it's always ending like this.

I agree, and it's going to destroy them politically if they don't let the chinese members go.

In the end, it will hurt those korean companies, they should push korean members to learn mandarin and sing in mandarin next time like they do for japanese release.

Koreans won't even be able to promote in China anyways, at least singing the songs in mandarin can help them to get fans (if the song is good).

It won't trash their image, and will keep their group full and fandoms until the end.

Wanting a chinese idols to work for a korean companies will not work until the end. Chinese celebrities change their labels or companies all the time and some even start their own label (company). They aren't stable investments....

Im done with this group. Knew it was gonna happen. And Cheng Xiao even said in previous fan sign events that ofc she won't run off to China, she would've never come to Korea if that was the plan...... right guess silly us for believing in it.

You can't say NO to China (even if you are chinese). For her career, she will have to follow whatever China say or ask to do.

All chinese will be like that (no matter what) if they are popular in Korea or China.

It's good for them. As it is, only two or three of the present members, and only one of the Chinese members, have variety skills. They do not need two more who merely sit back and look pretty.

I knew it, when YH put Mei Qi and Xuan Yi in PD101, I knew that they won't comeback if they hit big in china.

No chinese idols went back to promote in Korea when they got big in China.

Lay is just staying in EXO for DUTY to wash the image of the 3 who left. Victoria is older and will have to priorize her solo activity. Cao Lu is nugu in China, since her group is nugu in Korea and China.

who cares... groups with 4324543 members can promote with -50 members. Same thing as TWICE. If Dahyun and/or Chaeyoung leave the group it still exist, because these 2 girls are kinda useless. But wih BLACKPINK for example, any member is super important to the group, so if one of them decide to leave, the group is over
