Fantagio‘s girl group Hello Venus has become the latest victim of the famous “7 year curse” with the reports of the group’s disbandment.
According to the report, the members of Hello Venus all agreed to go their separate ways as actresses and singers. The group made their official debut on May 9, 2012 and will disband when it is time for the members to discuss contract renewals, leading to signs that at least some of the members will choose to leave Fantagio.
Fantagio has released their response to the report.
We are currently in discussions with Hello Venus on whether or not the contract will be renewed.
Hello Venus started out as a joint project between Fantagio and Pledis Entertainment. After the two agencies decided to terminate the joint project, Yoo Ara and Yoonjo returned to Pledis Entertainment while Hello Venus became fully operated by Fantagio. They added 2 new members, Seoyoung and Yeoreum, in 2014.
Hello Venus’s last release as a group was in January 2017. Since then, the members have been promoting individually, most notably Kwon Nara as an actress.
