No more summer: SISTAR disband after 7 years

Seems like the 7-year-curse has struck again and yet another 2nd generation K-Pop girl group has left us.

The 4 members of SISTAR, who were especially known for their summer hits, are going separate ways since 23 May. A final album, “Lonely”, will be released on 31 May.

Their agency has issued the following statement:

“Hello, this is Starship Entertainment.

First, we want to thank all the fans who have cherished and loved SISTAR for the 7 years since they debuted. SISTAR will officially end their 7-year promotions as a group with their last album on May 31st. After our label and SISTAR talked for a long time, we have agreed to bring SISTAR to an end. SISTAR’s disbandment is a very disappointing and a painful thing, but we believe that it is the best to support the road that each member wants. We will be doing our best to support the members’ futures. SISTAR and the label thanks everyone once again for the large support we have received. Please show warm support and interest to the SISTAR members, who are standing at a new start in life.

Thank you.”
