SG Wannabe signs on with CJ E&M for comeback

Talented vocal group SG Wannabe has signed an exclusive contract with CJ E&M, as they prepare for a long-awaited comeback after four years of hiatus, exciting fans after previous speculations.

According to a music industry insider on January 17th, the three members of SG Wannabe agreed to have CJ E&M carry out their comeback plans as their management company. He said, “On the 16th, the three members met with CJ E&M and signed an agreement. CJ E&M will be taking care of managing performances and producing the albums, and will also be in charge of management of the group, not by their individual agencies.”

“No release date for the album has been confirmed, and they begin recording soon.” 

Debuting in 2004, SG Wannabe rose into prominence with their fantastic vocals despite not revealing their faces to the public. Since then, they have had released countless of hits, including “Timeless,” “Sin & Punishment,” “Saldaga (While You Live,” “Arirang,” “La La La,” and more.

However, their activities as SG Wannabe were halted following the death of member Chae Dong Ha in 2011, who committed suicide after his long bout with depression. Chae Dong Ha debuted in 2004 with SG Wannabe, leaving the group in 2007 to pursue solo activities, and was replaced by Lee Seok Hoon.
