Will he, or will he not?
It is rumoured that Fahrenheit member Jiro Wang will not be renewing his contract following its impending expiry with current management Comic International Productions, raising fears that the departure of another member will lead to the permanent disbandment of the idol group.
The boyband debuted in 2005 as a quartet, including Jiro, Calvin Chen, Aaron Yan and ex-member Wu Chun. Following Wu Chun's departure in June last year, Comic announced that Fahrenheit would continue as a trio and that they would release an album this year.
Following that announcement, Jiro, Calvin and Aaron embarked on individual activities, with Aaron releasing a solo EP, Jiro jumping to the big screen and Calvin focusing on hosting variety programs, delaying the group album indefinitely.
In recent days, Jiro was reported to be unwilling to renew his contract with Comic after his solo album release later this year. The possibility of him signing with another company has put Fahrenheit's situation as a group in perilous waters.
When asked to comment, he neither confirmed nor refuted the rumours, choosing to answer ambiguously, "I've been busy filming and recording my album. I'm currently still deliberating (my future plans) but cooperation is possible as long as everyone is reasonable."
