On April 25 during MBC‘s, “Golden Fishery“, Eugene of S.E.S appeared as a guest, and revealed the true reason behind the group’s breakup.
MC Kang Ho Dong asked,“Did S.E.S break up because of money?”
Eugene replied, “Bada, Shoo and I wanted to renew our contract, but SM wanted to sign us on individually. The first contract was the same situation, so they wanted the same thing for the contract renewal.”
She went on to say that, “Because we couldn’t reach an agreement regarding the contract renewal, we thought, ‘We already reached the top so lets break up when we already have popularity.’ We agreed amongst ourselves to separate.”
Eugene then added, “Idol groups these days can do individual promotions while also doing group promotions so they don’t have to break up, but there wasn’t that kind of system during our days. At that time, if we do individual promotions it feels like we’re betraying our members. So we always did everything together as us three. That’s why we decided to break up. If the system was like how it’s now, we wouldn’t have to break up and continued promoting.”
