PIXY's Satbyeol and Ella announce departure from the group


On August 27, PIXY's agency Allart Entertainment released an official statement via the group's fancafe, delivering the news of PIXY members Satbyeol and Ella's departure from the group.

Last May, Ella wasn't able to participate in her group's last comeback activities due to health reasons. This past July, it was announced that Satbyeol will halt activities after their Otakon schedule to take sufficient treatment and rest.

The agency's statement is as follows:

This is Allart Entertainment.

First of all, I would like to sincerely thank the fans who cherish and love PIXY.

We would like to tell fans about the activities of our artists, PIXY members Ella and Satbyeol, who are currently on break.

Ella and Satbyeol, who were loved and worked together as PIXY members, announced their intention to suspend their entertainment activities due to health reasons, a great burden from the activities, and personal reasons, they finally decided to leave the team.

We sincerely apologize to the fans who have waited for the news of Ella and Satbyeol and supported their healthy comeback.

In the meantime, we have had plenty of time with Ella and Satbyeol, and we have talked a lot about PIXY activities and have been negotiating according to the possibility and direction of future activities.

We have decided to respect the will of the two artists.

We were aware that fans wanted a clear announcement due to the announcement of the two artists' break, but please understand that the announcement was delayed as we decided it was right to wait for Ella and Satbyeol's decisions to be finalized before posting the announcement.

Also, we earnestly ask you to refrain from reckless speculation and dissemination of false information regarding the withdrawal of the members.

Allart Entertainment will continue to encourage Ella and Satbyeol to recover and encourage their future, and we will do our best to ensure that the remaining PIXY members can continue their team activities normally.

The schedule planned for the second half of the year will be rescheduled, and we promise to repay you with better music after a new reorganization.

We apologize once again to all the fans who took care of us for a long time before the announcement was made, and who must have been frustrated by not being able to understand the situation.

Thank you.

Meanwhile, PIXY was originally a six-member girl group with members Ella, Lola, Satbyeol, Dia, Sua, and Dajeong. PIXY debuted in February of 2021 with the digital single "Wings", and recently came back with their third mini-album 'REBORN', which features the title track "Villain".

Wishing Ella and Satbyeol the best in their future endeavors.

  1. PIXY
  3. ELLA

This can't have been an easy decision for either of them and it's sad for the fans, but I wish Ella and Satbyeol all the best in the future <3
