FIFTY FIFTY to regroup with original member Keena and 3 new members

ATTRAKT is set to reorganize their four-member girl group, as announced by the agency on November 2, 2023.

“We plan to reorganize FIFTY FIFTY centering around Keena, who recently returned [to the agency.] We will recruit three new members and form a four-member group.”

The announcement comes 2 weeks following ATTRAKT’s termination of the contracts of former FIFTY FIFTY members Aran, Saena, and Sio, where the agency commented, “We have secured clear evidence of tampering collusion between the three members and The Givers representative Ahn Sung Il, and legal action is planned accordingly.”

Apart from that, the Seoul High Court’s rejection of Saena, Aran, and Sio’s appeal on their case against ATTRAKT. The Seoul High Court had concluded that the members’ claims had “insufficient evidence”, thus ultimately siding in favor of ATTRAKT.

About 4 days ago on October 29, 2023, ATTRAKT also announced that FIFTY FIFTY’s Keena will be attending the 2023 Billboard Music Awards on November 19, 2023. The group had been nominated for two Billboard Music Awards this year: Top Duo/Group and Top Global K-Pop Song (for Cupid).

Here are some of the reactions of Hunnies (FIFTY FIFTY fans) about the news:
