The members of Crayon Pop have about one month left on their official contract with Chrome Entertainment and might not be renewing with the company.
Currently, all of the members are focusing on their individual activities, leaving industry insiders to predict that a contract renewal to continue group activities will be unlikely. Even though the group has only released one studio album, experts explained that, given their status as a six-year-old group, releasing another album before their contract expiration would be quite difficult.
A Chrome Entertainment official offered this statement about Crayon Pop’s contract.
“We haven’t talked about disbandment or renewing contracts with the members yet. They are all so busy with individuals activities and working hard, there wasn’t a right time to talk about the contracts.” – Chrome Entertainment Official
