CUBE Entertainment has announced that the official activities of K-pop girl group CLC have ended.
The South Korean entertainment label released an opinion earlier today (May 20), announcing the imminent closure of the K-pop girl group’s fanclub forum, named CLC U CUBE.
In the notice, the label attributed the reason for its closure to the end of CLC’s activities as a group. This is notably the first time that the label has confirmed that the girl group is no longer active as a K-pop act, following CLC’s long absence.
“First of all, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you for always loving and supporting CLC over the past seven years,” CUBE Entertainment wrote. “As CLC’s official activities have ended, we would like to inform you that the operation of CLC U CUBE will end on June 6, 2022.”
CUBE also noted that a grace period would be given before the site was shut down, to allow fans to “treasure the precious memories made with CLC members” before they were permanently deleted. Notably, CLC U CUBE was used by the band and their fanbase as a mode of communication, with access provided to registered CLC fans.
“We want to express our sincere gratitude for your love and support of CLC,” the music label continued, though it didn’t provide further details regarding the group’s disbandment and the circumstances that led to it. . “We wholeheartedly applaud each of the seven members as they make a fresh start on their own path.”
The statement comes several months after members Seungyeon and Yeeun announced their departure from the label in March, after their two exclusive contracts expired.
The duo were the third and fourth CLC members to leave the company so far, following Thai teammate Sorn in November 2021 and Hong Kong-born Elkie in February last year.
