Hello. This is Source Music.

The exclusive artist contract with GFRIEND and Source Music will be concluded on May 22.

After careful consideration and extensive discussion, GFRIEND and Source Music have come to an agreement to follow separate paths to continued growth. 

For the past six years, GFRIEND has won the boundless love of K-pop frans through a wide range of concepts, performances and songs that marked a new generation of girl group and music.

We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to GFRIEND who has allowed Source Music to accompany them on their journey.

We would like to deeply thank all BUDDY and fans who have shown your love for GFRIEND, and we ask that you give your unchanging love and support to the members who will begin their adventures in new and diverse areas.

Source Music will always continue to cheer for the members as they take the first step towards new beginnings.

Thank you.

On 19 May, GFRIEND's six members — Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB, and Umji — uploaded heartfelt handwritten letters that were addressed to their fans, known as BUDDYs, to their official Weverse accounts. The letters were translated to English using the Papago web translator.

GFRIEND debuted in 2015 with a five-track EP entitled Glass Bead. Since then, the group has been well-known for chart-topping tracks including 'Me Gusta Tu', 'Rough', and 'MAGO'

Following the announcement, fans took to Twitter to share their support and appreciation for the group and even started the trend #ThankYouGFriend.
