According to an official press statement by YG Entertainment on August 18, all four members of WINNER have decided to renew their exclusive contracts with the label for another 5 years.
WINNER, who debuted back in August of 2014, recently celebrated its 7th anniversary with fans. In light of their 7th anniversary, it seems that the four WINNER members have come to an agreement to renew their contracts together and continue as a group for 5 more years.
WINNER also relayed via YG Entertainment on this day, "We have always wanted to tell our fans, Inner Circles, that we respect you for always being on our side. It is because of you that WINNER exists. This is a musical journey without a planned destination, and we would like to make even more precious memories with you from now on."
In response, fans have gathered to an online community to congratulate the boys and express how happy they were about all the members signing with the agency once again. Netizens commented, "Thank you guys for staying together for another five years," "Making a contract with the agency again is a hard decision but I'm really thankful they decided to stay together," "I love them so much," "I feel like crying," "I'm so happy that we can continue to see WINNER," and "The important thing is that the group stays together for another five years and not that they signed with YG."
