Yaebin’s Instagram Story
“Hello, this is often Yaebin.
I would wish to express my feelings to everyone who may are greatly surprised by this sudden news.
First, to the fans who have looked over me and supported me before HINAPIA and since my PRISTIN days, the actual fact that I used to be ineffective to stay my promise of repaying your support and love, and instead greeted you with news of disbandment again makes me feel very sorry and apologetic.
But until the day that I can fulfill this promise comes, I’ll promise myself that I’ll work even harder.
Also, to the fans who have cared for and loved HINAPIA, the belief that we don’t have any further chances to point out a more robust side of ourselves hurts my heart most.
However, we’ll only be but one another temporarily. I would like to allow you to know that our hearts will always be together.
Due to the difficult circumstances our company is facing, we decided that we could now not continue our activities.
To all of the fans who were wondering about how I’ve got been doing, I hope you understanding our situation.
Although we were active for a brief period of your time, I’ll remember everybody who loved HINAPIA.
There is no way on my behalf to understand what I’ll be doing in the future. But, I will be able to ensure an improved and more hardworking side of myself so the valuable memories of the fans who loved and cared for us won’t dissolve.
The members who are walking their own paths and that I, the person penning this letter, ask you for your continuous support.
Finally, I need to complete this letter by saying that I’m so thankful for all the love you have got given me.”
Eunwoo’s Instagram Story
“Everybody, don’t feel too sad!
In my long life, it had been nice to be able to experience a career as a singer and make precious relationships.
Just because this ended doesn’t mean my life ended, so I plan on working even harder.
Experiencing various things could be a guarantee in life, so I don’t want to think about this too badly. So isn’t that why people say life is sort of a rollercoaster?!
Although this is often the tip of HINAPIA’s Jung Eunwoo, it’s only the beginning for Jung Eunwoo, so I’ll attempt to work harder.
Also, there was a journalist who called this an ill-fated destiny but.. doesn’t consider it like that it had been never ill-fated haha…
I have been so thankful and that I am so thankful.
As I’ve got received most like to the purpose where I’m wondering if I even deserve this much love, I will be able to remember this as a precious memory.
Minkyeung’s Instagram Post
“Hello, this is often Kim Minkyeung.
After much discussion with the corporate, we decided that it’d be difficult to stay the group together because of internal issues with the corporate recently.
I would prefer to sincerely thank the OSR family for creating HINAPIA staying with us until the tip.
Above all, my heart is heavy because I desire I’m only to deliver bad news to the fans who have always loved and supported us.
I was happy to be able to stand on the stage and I used to be happy to try and do this with our fans.
This is not the top and is very a brand new start, so please look out on behalf of me as I’ll come to fulfill you with a stronger side of myself. I’d also like for you to cheer on my members’ futures.
I want to sincerely apologize and thank everybody who has always given me most love.”
OSR Entertainment announced today that group HINAPIA has disbanded.

We would wish to apologize for delivering bad news to the fans who have loved Hinapia and waited permanently for news.
HINAPIA has disbanded, and every member has terminated their exclusive contracts.
After lengthy discussions between the corporate and Hinapia, we both decided to disband the group and terminate the members’ contracts.
We ask you to support the HINAPIA members as they attempt to start up a replacement path with various activities in several fields.
We would prefer to apologize another time to everyone who has loved and cared for HINAPIA.
This news comes but a year since HINAPIA’s debut. The group (Minkyeung, Gyeongwon, Eunwoo, Yaebin, and Bada) debuted last November. Notably, members Minkyeung, Gyeongwon, Eunwoo, and Yaebin are former members of a now-disbanded group called PRISTIN.
