“We have no intention to disband Girl’s Day’s group activities,” the label said. “We are seeking ways for the group to do activities together in the future.”

The four-piece act debuted in 2010 with EP “Girl’s Day Party #1,” and rolled out hit songs like "Twinkle Twinkle," "Hug Me Once," “Something” and “Darling.” In 2017, they renewed their contract as a full group with the agency.

All four members have individual acting and variety show careers, in addition to group activities, with Hyeri scoring success as a lead in the drama “Reply 1988” in 2015 and Minah gaining popularity with drama “Beautiful Gongshim” in 2016. Sojin and Yura have also appeared in variety shows and films.
