The four members of JQT have been working with Melvin Brown since last year, a producer associated with famous artists like Lady Gaga, Akon, T-Pain, and more. But when their contract ended with agency GP Entertainment in December, the group decided to split up.
JQT’s representative revealed to Star News that “Our contract with the JQT members has ended, and the members did not show a desire to renew it. We are going over the plans of their American debut, but it seems like a thin situation.” (The word “thin” here was used to describe that their American debut is not likely to happen.)
Members Minjung, Gajin, and Jieun were discovered in 2005, followed by Minsun through a separate audition. These four girls debuted in 2009 as JQT, with Jinkyung later replacing Minsun.
As for their future plans, it’s been revealed that Minjung, Gajin, and Jieun will make a fresh start with agency EC Ebenezer. They will join two others to create a five member girl group called ‘As the One‘.
