Dal Shabet members Jiyul and Ga Eun will be leaving the group after deciding not to renew their contracts with Happy Face Entertainment.
The two’s contracts and their decision to leave were belatedly revealed to the public. Dal Shabet had been promoting in Japan, and their announcement was delayed so that a shadow wasn’t cast over the group’s activities.
According to statements released by the two, Jiyul will be pursuing an acting career while Ga Eun will be studying fashion and style in order to break into the fashion industry.
Dal Shabet’s remaining members, Ahyoung, Seri, Subin and Woohee, will continue on as a 4-member group. The group plans to release a new mini album in January to celebrate its 5th anniversary.
