Jo Kwon and JYP Entertainment decided to go their separate ways after working together for 16 years.
According to internal sources, Jo Kwon and the agency discussed the issue for a long time on the expiration of contractual time. After discussing, both parties decided to terminate the contract. And he will be looking for a new agency from now on.
One person said:
“Jo Kwon had been at JYP Entertainment since 2001, during which time he spent the first 7 years as a trainee. And promoted for 9 years after his debut in 2008. Recently, he and the company talked about the direction of their career. And after doing so, he decided to have a fresh start. Despite the difficulty in his decision because he remained at the agency for so long, both parties decided to support each other in their future activities. “
With Jo Kwon leaving the company, all 2AM members left the agency for their next steps in the entertainment industry. Jo Kwon also posted on his instagram to let fans know about his change.
