Controversies & News

Just like any other K-Pop group, Sha Sha also had their ups and downs in the Korean entertainment industry. Check out Sha Sha’s controversies and news below!

Sha Sha Former & New Members

On July 30th, 2018, Sha Sha announced member changes. Ian, Garam, and Soyeop were reported of leaving the group.

The representative from the group’s agency said:

“Respecting the personal opinions of the three Sha Sha members Ian, Garam, and Soyeop, their departure from the team has been decided after discussion.

A comeback is being prepared with new members to take the place of the three members who cannot continue together, and with the addition of Chinese and Japanese members, they will become a more global group.”

On May 25th, 2019, Sha Sha returned with 2 new members. Subin and Sunye were the latest addition, while, Wanlin left the group due to health issues.

The agency said:

“Sha Sha will be promoting from here on as a 7-member group; as two new members, Subin and Sunye will be joining the group in place of member Wanlin who has chosen to return to China due to health issues as well as personal reasons.”

Sha Sha Wanlin Faints On Stage

On August 23rd, 2018, Sha Sha’s Wanlin had to be rushed to the hospital after collapsing during a comeback showcase. At that time, Sha Sha members were holding a comeback showcase for their second single album What The Heck. This was their first comeback since the three original members of SHA SHA decided to leave the group.

Earlier, on July 30th, 2018, the agency of Sha Sha revealed that Ian, Garam and Soyeon left the group. The agency also announced that there would be additional members from China and Japan. That way, Sha Sha will become a more global group. The three new members who are members of Sha Sha are Hakyung, Chaki, and Wanlin. They were very enthusiastic to introduce themselves through this comeback showcase.

However, at the end of the showcase, Wanlin suddenly lost consciousness and fainted while on stage.

Other Sha Sha members were seen crying because they were shocked by what happened and did not know what they had to do with Wanlin. MC Ding Dong helped out as staff rushed to help Wanlin. The showcase event ended quickly because Wanlin had to be rushed to the hospital immediately.

A source from the Sha Sha agency said that Wanlin had indeed been sick since morning.

“Wanlin has been feeling unwell since this morning. But she showed a strong desire to stand on stage even though she wasn’t feeling well,” said the representative from Major Entertainment, Sha Sha’s agency. They explained that Wanlin’s nervousness towards the showcase might worsen her health condition.

The agency then informed Wanlin’s condition after the incident and the reason for her passing out on stage. After undergoing an examination at the hospital, the agency said, “The results of the examination showed that Wanlin fainted due to insufficient blood flow to the brain. We plan to conduct further tests to find out her health condition and to avoid complications.”

Thus, Wanlin was forced to be absent from group promotion activities, so Sha Sha will only do promotions with five members.

Here is what the netizens commented on the situation at the time:

[+35] I cried😭😭 only shows that every k-Pop artist gives more than his/hers 100% even if they’re not feeling well, they would still make their fans happy. I hope she gets well soon😭

[+27] Low blood pressure + tiredness may be what caused this incident so the way to avoid this is with proper diet and managing her exercise schedule… Anyway, the way the mc is trying to wake her up is very harmful and may cause another problem after she wakes up, such as dizziness, etc…

[+14] Poor girl ☹️

[+5] These companies are wearing these idols out 😭

[+4] I’ve seen a clear cut of her alone before fainting, she was very tired, her eyes, her mouth movement, she was even trying to shake it off (maybe tried so hard to endure it all the way) and then she passes out. The report says there was an insufficient supply of oxygen to her brain and before this she was unwell already.

Such a sad situation, thankfully, Wanlin recovered quickly after that incident.

Sha Sha Official Disbandment

Girl group Sha Sha announced their disbandment in July 2019.

In fact, the official announcement on their Fan Café posted on July 17th, 2019, read:

So, to be able to meet everyone’s views, we have talked to each of the members for a long time. The limit has been reached and thus it was decided that their activities will come to an end, and they will go their separate ways.

Thus, all of their SNS accounts will be closed today while this café will be closed on August 2nd, 2019. We are sorry to deliver such news to the fans who have been looking forward to their activities.
