In June, leader Kim HyunJoong moved to another management company which aroused rumors of disband, the other members of SS501 will choose their own path themselves following their contract expiry with their current management company DSP.

Kim HyunJoong moved to Bae YongJoon’s company Key East, in fact the group seems to be disbanded since Park JungMin and Kim HyungJun are looking for a new company themselves too.

Park JungMin announced on 10-Aug that he has signed with CNR Media, which is a Korea and Taiwan joint venture company, Kim HyungJun has not confirmed any contract with new management company but it is known that he is preparing for his own activities.

Rather than announcing the official disband, it has been observed that SS501 members wish to keep the group. Park JungMin announced his contract with CNR Media on 10-Aug and wrote in the homepage “I will come forth with the name of ‘Park JungMin’ from ‘SS501’. Of course, I will always be ‘SS501’s JungMin’..! JungMin in SS501!”

He also wrote “Though there are many worries and nervousness, please give lots of strength to JungMin who is taking his first step now..! In the future, I will work harder and make progress.”

Earlier on, Kim HyunJoong also revealed his similar stance on this matter.

However, most analysis shows that it would be difficult to have their activities together in reality if they are with different management companies.

Meanwhile, Kim HyunJoong will be starring in MBC new Wed-Thu drama ‘Mischievous Kiss’ where he acts as a genius pretty boy who has an IQ of 200. ‘Mischievous Kiss’ will succeed ‘Road Number 1’, starting its broadcast on 1-Sep.

Everything changes...that's inevitable. The boys grow up and move on, but I'm sure it has to be hard for them. They grew up from kids together in such a hothouse idol universe. If I knew they could still be good friends, then I wouldn't feel sad...but it seems hard to get that kind of personal news now. Haven't heard anything about Kyu Jong, and I've grown to think highly of him. Hope all the boys keep going!

Thanks so much for this little update!
