Cosmic Girls to drop EP without 3 members

Sept 04,2018
The Cosmic Girls, also known as WJSN, a pop group comprised of Korean and Chinese members, will drop a new EP on Sept. 19, their agency said on Monday.

However, three of the 13 members will not be part of the EP’s release and corresponding activities due to prior engagements in China.

“We are sad to say that Xuan Yi, Mei Qi and Cheng Xiao will not be able to participate in the comeback due to prior commitments in China,” Starship Entertainment said in a statement. “We are very sorry to have to inform Cosmic Girl fans of such circumstances and hope that [the fans] will still be able to support their comeback.”

The group’s last release was the single “Dreams Come True” in February. In the past seven months, the members have been busy with their own personal schedules. Xuan Yi and Mei Qi participated in the Chinese version of the Korean survival show “Produce 101.”

The Cosmic Girls debuted in early 2016 with the EP “Would You Like?” Their upcoming EP is titled “WJ Please?”
