MANILA, Philippines – K-pop boy band D-Crunch is disbanding after four years.
The group’s agency, Ai Grand Korea, said in a statement on Wednesday, November 9, that both the members and agency ultimately decided to disband the group.
They also thanked DIANA, the band’s fan club, and all their fans who have supported them throughout the years. They asked them to continue supporting the members in their individual pursuits.
“We deeply thank DIANA and all the fans who have loved D-CRUNCH during this time and ask that you send your unchanging love and support to the members who will start anew in various fields,” the post roughly translates.
The agency additionally noted that the group’s official fan cafe and social media accounts will be deactivated in November.
