Update: New BEG album is reportedly due out late September/Early October through Nega Network, despite the members’ individual contract terminations.
Jea, Miryo, and Narsha –the remaining Brown Eyed Girls members signed to Nega Network– have officially left the agency after almost a decade.
The trio are currently free agents and have yet to start shopping for a new label, but now that the cat is out of the bag I’m sure that they’ll be fielding offers left and right.
If you’ve read any of my recent BEG posts (such as this one on Miryo’s busted solo comeback) then you’ll know that Nega’s been a terrible agency for years now and lacked the financial means to support a group as big as BEG. I’m not going to go over all that crap again since I’ve already said it, I’m just glad that the girls are finally free and may now be able to get the group back on track after years of mismanagement.
Ga-In is currently signed as a soloist to APOP Entertainment, a subsidiary of the popular Mystic Entertainment, which is how she’s been able to continue her solo career (Nega was not picking up that cheque).
Although BEG are all over the place right now, they’ve been working on a comeback album for the past few months and have previously indicated that they plan to continue promoting as a group, so I don’t think we need to worry about disbandment. Even the worst case scenario, if Ga-In left the group or couldn’t contractually promote with them (which wouldn’t happen, but this is a hypothetical), BEG would still most likely continue on as a trio.
Now let’s all remain hopeful and optimistic about BEG’s future. After years of fuckery at Nega, these divine queens are finally going to get the support they need and deserve to come back and slay us with their future Golden Disk Award winning album.
Note to Nega: You motherfuckers better not pull some legal shit like not giving BEG the rights to their name or back catalogue!
Here’s a video of BEG performing at some event this year… They look flawless.
