Fifty Fifty begins reorganization... Expectations and concerns following member changes
With Fifty Fifty's 'Cupid' re-entering three Billboard charts, expectations and concerns are following the group's reorganization.

FIFTY FIFTY's 'Cupid' set a number of new records on the US Billboard chart last year, including the shortest entry on the 'Bubbling Under Hot 100' chart after debut, the shortest entry on the 'Hot 100' chart after debut, and the longest entry by a girl group. re-entered the Billboard again.

There are a total of three charts that FIFTY FIFTY entered this time. It ranked 9th in ‘World Digital Song Sales’, 15th in ‘World Album’, and 197th in ‘Global 200 Excl US’.

Previously, in June of last year, Fifty Fifty members Sana, Aran, Kina, and Sio filed for a temporary injunction to suspend the exclusive contract, claiming that their agency Attract had not properly fulfilled its obligations under the exclusive contract, such as transparent settlement. However, the court decided to dismiss the case last August, and they appealed again.

Afterwards, all members, including Kina, Saena, Shio, and Aran, appealed against the court's decision. However, member Kina submitted a withdrawal of appeal alone and returned to Attract. However, Saena, Sio, and Aran are still claiming the issue of settlement and distribution of Attract as the reason for requesting a preliminary injunction.

The agency Attract recently began full-scale member reorganization, centering on Kina. It is reported that the group lineup will be confirmed around April and new songs will be released by June.

Although the group has shown global success enough to earn the title 'small-medium miracle', there are concerns about Fifty Fifty being reorganized. As the member composition changes, it appears that it will be difficult to maintain the same group color as before. Will the reorganized Fifty Fifty be able to enjoy the same glory as before? Attention is being paid to how they will appear in front of the public.
