F4 to formally disband in October

Taiwan’s popular boy band F4 will become history as the lead singer Jerry Yan will leave the current company soon, the Fujian-based Southeast Express reports on Friday.

The pop singer and actor’s contract with Wu Fu Long Production Company will come to an end in October, and it has been confirmed that he will not renew the contract. Jerry Yan launched his own studio “Star Jerry” back in 2005.

In order to develop his market in Japan, he signed in secret with Japanese Top boy group SMAP’s agent Johnny and Associates to act as his new manager in June, thus becoming Kimura Takuya’s junior colleague.

The other members of the group, including Ken Chu and Vanness Wu, will also face decisions regarding their contracts soon. Vanness Wu has already decided that he will not renew his contract at the end of this year, while Ken Chu also admitted that he was considering leaving.

Only Vic Chou will continue to work with the current agency, says the report. [Cri]

Update Sep 21 – F4’s agency has denied the rumour; stating that F4 will still be intact and will hold a concert in Japan next year.
