Phew! JeA of girl group Brown Eyed Girls says that the band are not about to split up.
After reports that the band were going to disband spread across several media sites last night, the 33-year-old band leader immediately stepped forward to diffuse the talk and brand all reports as false.
JeA took to her Twitter account and wrote, "Our fans may have been shocked by these fictional reports but let me tell you they are untrue. I don’t know what they are talking about because we are currently working on our next album ;; I’m even more startled that the reports were so detailed."
She continued, "[The headline] 'Brown Eyed Girls to Disband’ is totally false and even if such a day were to come we would inform our fans directly ourselves and certainly not though these kind of articles."
소설같은 기사에 팬들 당황 하셨을텐데 전혀 사실무근입니다 앨범준비중에 있는데 이게 무슨소린지 ;; 너무 내용도 구체적이라 당황스럽네요 "브아걸 해체"절대 사실아니고요 혹시 그런날이 오게되더라도 이런식의 기사로 말고 저희가 직접 팬분들께 말할꺼예요

Rumours first started after news emerged of the members coming towards the end of their contracts with the band's agency, Nega Network. But a rep for the group says, "The girls are working on a new album with intentions to make a comeback within the year."
