Banna Culture responds to EXID members' upcoming contract expirations


EXID's management label Banana Culture Entertainment issued an official statement of response to ongoing reports which claimed that the members' contracts with the company expire this February. 

Banana Culture said on January 17, 

"Hello. This is Banana Culture Entertainment. We deliver our official statement regarding reports of EXID's contract expirations, coming up at the end of February. 
Currently, EXID's contract is set to last until May of 2019, with a Japanese tour scheduled throughout the month of February. We also have plans for the group to release a full album shortly after their Japanese tour.

The EXID members plan on carrying out the above schedules as planned, and by either the end of January or the middle of February, we plan to discuss each member's contract expirations in detail."

Earlier, reports alleged that the EXID members' contracts expire in order beginning at the end of February, after 7-years with Banana Culture. Insiders also stated that some members have already met with representatives from other companies. 

Stay tuned for updates.

I wouldn’t mind if the members signed individually with other companies for other solo endeavours in the industry as long as they remained a group, comeback maybe every anniversary and continued to promote under Banana Culture.

I honestly feel like this company has really cared for the group and members and given them freedom and all the opportunities that they could offer. There seems to be no bad blood between anyone and hopefully this is the end outcome as I feel like this group is nowhere near the end of their run and all they can accomplish.

I defiantly see Jungwha wanting to drift into acting and Solji and LE promoting solo.

Hani might want to take a break and go back to study psychology as she once wanted to do.

This has happened before with other groups (Brown Eyed Girls ect.) so let’s hope this can happen to these girls as well! EXID FIGHTING!
