    So I don't think i've really seen anyone talk about this :whatr:

    SISTAR's contract is ending next month


    SISTAR debuted in 2010 with their single 'Push Push'
    [​IMG]

    But SISTAR is also having a comeback on the 31st of May which is pretty much overlapping with their contract expiration if i'm not mistaken.

    So do you guys think SISTAR will renew their contracts or will they all leave the company and start their own?
    Or pull a 4Minute where everyone leaves but Hyorin stays?

    I don't follow SISTAR closely enough but their last album sold about 10k and it had about 900k downloads but I still think they have a lot of public recognition? so I feel like there might be a chance for them to renew:whatr:

    I believe they will. Starship maybe doesn't promote them as a group much anymore but they do push each member individually. Hyorin and Soyu with their singing careers, Bora with her variety career and Dasom with her musical/acting career.

    With the way Starship has been treating them as a group/Star1, it's unlikely they'll renew. + Their contracts expire June 3rd and come back on May 31st. Still no new teasers or anything about their comeback.

    And I read tweets from some star1s they don't want Sistar to renew.

    I had no idea their contract expiration date was so near. Maybe they'll decide based on how their comeback will do, if the public is still interested in them since their strength is their public recognition. I hope they'll renew though, it'd be a shame to see them disband.

    I hope they make it past the 7 years that a lot of groups cannot. Who else really does Starship have to make them money, Cosmic girls?

    i believe hyorin and dasom will tbh but im just not sure about bora and dasom? i mean wouldnt it be better for them to sign with an acting agency or something then :whatr:but then again, they get their name from SISTAR as well. but even if they renew, they are 7 years old now so what they do then.. idk

    Yeah its stupid how they dont even give us any more info about their comeback and just posted a teaser pic with the date.
    i think starship is too busy with WJSN tbh... they are even letting their cb's overlap.
    Well I can understand why star1's are angry at starship... but SISTAR is still pretty popular right..
    and it wouldnt make sense if they already left the company?

    same like first they announce a comeback and then when youre waiting for teasers you get this instead :cryingr:
    well thats with 4M did too.. they waited for the results of their last comeback to decide things on but tbh their last comeback didnt sell that well i mean 10k? or maybe that was because of the concept so who knows if they sell more this time with a summer comeback the public might be more interested.:sweatr:it would indeed be a shame to see them go too..

    who would you say would stay then?

    lol well i mean.. they have monsta X I guess i mean they do sell about 100k albums to be fair so maybe they can tour later etc. and they did do a japanese release not too long ago but i also would think its a bit to soon to make them the breadwinner of the company so I think starship def needs SISTAR is in that aspect atleast until WJSN or MONSTA X are earning a lot. since you know they abanded boyfriend pretty much

    I know but this comeback might also be their last :( or at least for a long while? since they aren't coming back much anymore.
    I really hope because of that they will deliver.

    Yeah, I was thinking 4Minute too. Sistar always had pretty bad physical sales though so I don't think they rely on it much. But maybe they decided that if the song doesn't do as well as their other songs digitally, they'll just disband and continue with their individual activities (though, I'm not familiar with their individual activities honestly).
    Side note but I don't really want them to release a summer comeback honestly even if it might have more sales, I got tired pretty quickly of these type of songs. I loved I Like That and their latest song though.

    Well its just sad to see that one point they about 4M+ digitals and now about 900k :eek: they were definitely really big a few years ago.
    I guess we're just gonna have to wait for more info.. if starship ever gives us that >.>
    and in all honesty.. i want another concept like I Like That or Alone or even Give It to me cause those songs were bops and SISTAR slays that fierce type of concepts and especially Hyorin's voice fits it well imo :omgr: cause i wasnt a really big fan of touch my body, shake it etc.
    and omg! that song is really great!! I cant believe people slept on it :(
    and well Hyroin has done some collabs like with far east movement (it was pretty good)
    and not too long ago she did another collab but i forgot:sweatr:i didnt like the song lol

    The only thing, that I wish, is, that SISTAR won't disband... I don't care, if they'll stay at Starship or sign with another agency, as long as they continue to perform in a group!

    I honestly believe this too. They are pretty much known for being a SISTAR member despite having individual activities I think that the group helps a lot with their popularity and stuff so lets hope that they will.
    yeah main question is if SISTAR leaves, who will make money for starship? o_O
    Though i have seen many STAR1's complain and they dont want them to renew because of the way starship treats but them but again, i dont follow them so im not sure why.

    Yeah it would really be shame to lose another older group :( I dont think they would go as far as making their own company though..

    Sistar are amazing but their trend phase is dissipating, Hyorin is trying to break into EDM America, Dasom has her drama, Soyou her solo stuff and Bora has her looks + connections

    Same and I loved Alone so much. I hope their comeback will be a song like that. Anyways, did I even answer the question in the first place... I'd tend to go more towards them signing again unless their comeback has awful digitals.
    I hadn't heard that collab', I like it !
    Blue Moon ? I mean it was better than her last solo but not that much my thing either.

    lol I feel like this true.. :cryingk: Hyorin is doing some collabs here and there and I think she will be fine solo tbh
    yeah DAsom and Bora seem more focused on variety/acting and Soyou has solo stuff and thats why i actually have a feeling that Dasom and Bora have other interests for themselves than being an idol but I dont see Hyorin leaving tbh

    I have a feeling they will extend it for maybe 2 years. Starship has not neglected the group as a whole nor any of the members individually.
