SS501 ends Love Ya promotions amidst uncertain future with contract expiry
There have been lots of rumors flying around recently about the future of SS501, especialy surrounding their contracts which had supposedly expired last week.
DSP Media has today issued a statement through SS501’s website to state their stand and put down speculation,
Hello everyone. This is DSP Media.
SS501 Love Ya promotions has ended with effect from last week, June 13th. It’s a pity for Triple S that promotions were so short.
It felt like only yesterday when SS501 debuted through KMTV Show! Music Tank on June 8th, 2005. It has already been five years~
Like what all Triple S knows, SS501 members’ contracts had expired on June 7th, 2010.
During our preparations for this album, we had discussed about the length of promotions considering the contract expiry date. So we decided to keep promotions to within 2 – 3 weeks.
The SS501 members have not reached a conclusion regarding their future with the company. So we cannot give an official stand at the moment. We will announce their future once it has been finalized to Triple S.
We will produce a MV for the song Let Me Be The One from their Destination album, with footage from SS501 activities. It will be released in the middle of next week. We will announce a specific date in due time.
We are sorry for the short promotions and we hope that Triple S can soothe their feelings a little by enjoying the sight of SS501 in their Let Me Be The One MV.
We are really grateful to Triple S for helping SS501 to win the K-Chart twice.
We thank everyone for the love and concern for their new album from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that you can continue to love them like usual~
Thank you very much
