Many fans of TWICE express their worries that the girl group will disband following their contract expiration in late 2022. But the good news is the girls have continued the contract with JYP to make more catchy and popular songs!!!
When Is Twice Disband Date?
The date when TWICE disband is when all the members do not continue to renew their contracts with JYP Entertainment. For their current contract, the end date is set on October 2022, lasting 7 years since their debut in October 2015.
K-pop fans of TWICE, the world-popular girl group that debuted under JYP Entertainment, were worried about whether their favorite girl group idol will disband in the future. No doubt TWICE will disband someday when all nine members do not renew their contracts with JYP Entertainment. But this would happen in the next 3-5 years because all the girls of TWICE decided to extend their contract before the current contract’s end date in October 2022.
Will TWICE disband in 2022?
TWICE’s fans can be reassured that TWICE will not disband in 2022 because the girls renewed their contracts with JYP, breaking the “7-year curse” in the industry.
According to Soompi’s article, on 12 July, JYP Entertainment issued an official statement said that nine members of TWICE agreed to renew their contract and continue to stay with the company.
“All members of TWICE have renewed their contracts with us ahead of the exclusive contract expiration date in the fall. TWICE, who have played a major role in establishing the status and prestige of K-Pop Entertainment company JYP and the company, who have been a source of support for TWICE’s growth and development as a representative girl group, agreed to renew contracts with each other based on this mutual trust.“– JYP Entertainment
Besides, there was a rumor that Tzuyu, a member of TWICE, would leave the group sooner than the others because she extended the contract for only three years, not five years like other members. However, this is just a rumor because their official renewal contracts have not been revealed publicly. Moreover, the girls have not discussed or talked about it.
