The management agency posted the disbandment news through the group’s official fan café. Nega Network revealed that the members’ contracts have expired since December 21 of last year, and that all of the members have decided not to renew their contracts with the agency.
The disbandment announcement also states, “From here on, we would support and encourage the former members of the group as they forge their own paths not as members of LC9, but as individuals. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of the fans who have been waiting for LC9 all this time and we are truly sorry to have to share this unfortunate news with all of you.”
The last official update on LC9’s official social media accounts was back in February of last year in celebration of Jun’s birthday.
Meanwhile, former member E.Den, who have left the group prior to its disbandment to pursue his studies, have addressed the disbandment issue through his Twitter account and have thanked the fans and members who have stuck with the group.
So apparently lc9 disbanded. Honestly everyone saw this coming. I just wanna thank the fans that supported and the members for being awesome
