Although we’re just getting excited to see the former Pristin members and a new member that is Bada join the group Hinapia, unfortunately, the group had to end shortly after it just started. Not even a year into their debut, Hinapia was officially disbanded. OSR Entertainment announced the disbandment of Hinapia by releasing a statement on Friday, August 20th, 2020.
“First, we want to apologize for bringing bad news to fans who have always loved and waited for good news from Hinapia,” wrote a representative from the OSR Entertainment agency.
In a written statement, OSR said they had disbanded Hinapia and also terminated the contracts with all the members. “Our agency has spoken at length with the members for quite a long time. We have all come to the decision to disband the group and terminate our exclusive contracts with the five members,” the agency wrote.
The agency hopes that fans will continue to support each member to be active again in the future.
“The Hinapia members are set to be active in various fields in the future, we hope that fans will also support their new start,” wrote the agency. The agency also wrote a thank you note for the support and love given to HINAPIA during its nearly a year of debut. “Thank you for loving Hinapia until now and we apologize once again,” read the agency’s final words.
The disbandment decision is reported to be caused by the company’s difficult situation after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. All the members agreed to terminate their contracts and disband the group after only nine months.
Through her Instagram account, Bada shared the unfortunate news with fans. But although it is an unfortunate piece of news, she thanked the fans for consistently supporting her even though she still feels lacking and inexperienced.

I had fun on stage with my members while being a singer, and I was really happy to be able to meet fans while promoting. Thank you to the OSR staff who made me able to stand on stage as a singer and I’ll try to see fans in the future and show a good side of myself.
