Red Velvet’s contract is going to expire this month; will they be able to break the 7-year curse?
The due date of Red Velvet’s contract has come, and fans are worried because no update on their re-signing the contract with SM has been announced yet.
Red Velvet debuted in August 2014 and has just celebrated their 7th debut anniversary this month. The contract between a company and an idol group normally lasts for 7 years; therefore, the 7th year of an idol’s career is often called “the cursed 7th year“.
The contract of Red Velvet, who debuted in August, has reached its due date in August this year.
Therefore, Red Velvet must have decided if they would like to re-sign their contract, but the company has yet announced anything related to the girls’ re-signing of the contract.
Typically, ahead of an idol group’s contract renewal, many articles would be made on media sites. MAMAMOO, who debuted in the same year as Red Velvet, also announced updates on their renewal of contracts beforehand in June.
The news of Solar and Moonbyul‘s renewal of their contracts was announced in January, and Hwasa also re-signed with the company in March.
Thus, the expiry date of Red Velvet‘s contracts has come, but no update has been reported yet. This is why Red Velvet‘s fans are getting much more worried.
In addition, many people guessed that Red Velvet must have already re-signed their contract because they recently made their comeback this month and are also doing promotional activities.
In particular, Red Velvet‘s teamwork is still great, there were no disunity issues among the members, and the group is also performing well. Therefore, fans are looking forward to the renewal of their contracts.
On a recent live broadcast, Seul Gi hinted that they would re-sign with the company by saying, “We will show you more in the future”
As a result, netizens are paying attention to Red Velvet and hope that they would soon announce their contract renewals as a gift for their fans.
