In South Korea before 2009, Korean Music contracts would range anything from 10 years and up. So if you signed up with them at the age of 15, you could be with that company and group untill you turn 25!!!! WOW thats .......wow. That is commitment !!!!!

These are just a few Groups that have stood the test of time.  Shinhwa making it 20 years !!!! Wow.

another interesting fact is In 2009 South Korea Fare Trade Commision (KFTC) had changed the ruling for k POP contract to be maximum 7 years so contracts ca no longer be  10 years or more.

All the groups above were signed before this ruling so many have only just resigned in the past year go to see they have survived.
