  • rekklose

    Hyungsik officially signed contract with a new agency, does that mean that he also left ZE:A? :(((

  • Yume

    @rekklose:disqus
    “On February 9, 2017, it was falsely stated that ZE:A were likely to disband. However, it was later confirmed by the members themselves that this was not the case, and that for the time being they would focus on solo-activities with some of the members joining different companies.” – Wikipedia

    So I guess it’s just a period of hiatus. Hope they will be back together.

    Same here

  • blackempressss

    I am curious about that too.

  • Ghost

    Kevin after leaving now hosts on the Australian popasia radio and show called sbs popasia!

  • DaAunty

    ZE:A members’ contracts with Empire expired in January of this year. Members have left Empire. Yes, Hyungsik signed with UAA, Siwan with Plum, Kwanghee with Bonboo Entertainment, Dongjun with Gold Moon Entertainment. Kevin works for SBS and I’m not sure if he has a new agency. Comments by some members would indicate that the group is working individually now but get back together in the future. They have said that ZE:A has not disbanded. Several members are currently in the military. Min Woo is the first to enlist and was discharged in June. Taeheon should be discharged soon, enlistment date December 7, 2015. This year Kwanghee enlisted in March, Heechul in June and Siwan in July. Hyungsik and Dongjun have a few more years before they have to go. Hyungsik and Dongjun are working on their acting careers. Hyungsik has been cast in Suits with Jang Dong Gun. Dongjun with Song Seung Heon and Go Ara in OCN’s Black.

    I am not sure about the military requirement for Junyoung and Kevin.
