    When there has been an announcement of any group disbanding, their contracts not being renewed, has any group ever been saved from disbandment by some kind of fan campaign or something like that?

    Idk if this counts but maybe groups that changed themselves. Like minx and Dreamcatcher.

    I mean there are plenty of examples of groups getting hits at the right time like Exid, Seventeen, Momoland etc. but a group actually announcing disbandment and then getting saved without just transferring members to a new group? I don't think that's ever happened. Companies usually have enough foresight to determine whether they can salvage a project in any way, including makestar, and will do so before disbanding a group.

    There was a point were people thought SJ were going to disband/spilt up (to SJ-M and SJ-Trot), and they returned one more time with Sorry Sorry, which turned out to be successful

    Didn't they almost disband again during I NEED U/RUN? They might've had that cb as last shot? They didn't have enough money for props and extras and borrowed their managers car + had staff beat them up for the mv.

    I would say highlight saved themselves from the 7 year curse or just from contract release and group disbandment

    A-Prince were adopted in almost complete form by Girl's Day's agency and renamed Map6.

    But as for groups saved by fans, I guess Hotshot got a bump in popularity from PD101 and The Unit. Sadly their company is flat broke and hasn't been able to ride the popularity wave very far.
