DIA To Part Ways After Releasing Their Final Album in August

DIA, a K-pop girl group, has announced that they would break up when their final album is released in August.

According to Soompi, the girl group is preparing for one last final album in August before their contracts with their agency, PocketDol Studio expire, as reported by South Korean news outlet Edaily on 11th May. The DIA members will walk their individual paths after closing up promotions as a full group, according to the newspaper.

‘DIA will release their last album in August and will conclude their exclusive deal in September,’ PocketDol Studio said in a separate statement to Chosun, as translated by Koreaboo. In the months running up to the publication, more information will be released.

According to YTN, as translated by Soompi, this confirmation came immediately after a separate statement from a representative of the entertainment company, who explained at the time that it was impossible to say whether the August album will be the last album.

DIA’s August release will be their first in over two years, with their most recent project being ‘Flower 4 Seasons,’ which was released in June 2020. The title track, ‘Hug U,’ was the album’s highlight. Jueun, Eunchae, Chaeyeon, Yebin, Eunice and Huihyeon made their MBK Entertainment debut in 2015 with the single ‘Somehow’ off their debut album ‘Do It Amazing,’ and have since released one more studio album and six EPs.
