NU’EST is officially closing the curtains after 10 years of performing together.

Fans of second-generation K-pop groups surely know how NU’EST turned the tables with the members’ visuals and talents. In fact, all five members – JR, Aron, Baekho, Minhyun, and Ren – were tapped to appear in several music videos before their debut.

So when they officially took center stage, the K-pop boy group received overwhelming support from fans, leading them to release more music and projects. Overall, they released four studio albums, eight EPs, 17 singles, and 27 music videos.

Unfortunately, the group will no longer drop new music soon as they decided to disband after 10 years.

On February 28, Pledis Entertainment released a statement on WeVerse, confirming that NU’EST members JR, Aron, and Ren decided not to renew their contract with them after nearly 10 years. The five members’ contract will expire on March 14, and only Baekho and Minhyun will continue working with the agency.

“Our company and the members of NU’EST went through careful consideration and discussions on the future of the individual members and on what would be the best path for everyone and how they can present their best selves. We respect and support the decisions of every member, as they are the result of careful and extensive consideration and discussions.”
