Somi Confirms Joining YG After Leaving JYP
It’s a shocker to all K-pop fans that Jeon So Mi, former JYP Entertainment Trainee and center for girl group i.o.i confirmed joining The Black Label, a sub-label of the YG producer Teddy. This is the first time a former JYP artist joined YG.

People were surprised on how fast Somi could find another agency after leaving JYP, and suspected Somi has already contacted YG before leaving JYP. The Black Label has issued an official statement about Somi's joining, "We have signed an exclusive contract with Jeon So Mi as she has proven her talents as an artist and has infinite potential. We will be giving our best support so she can become the top artist through various promotions." And they also stated that, Somi may debut as solo artist instead of in a girl group, so she can debut as soon as possible. This strengthens the speculations that the reason Somi left JYP is because she didn’t want to wait for the new JYP girl group, but to debut in solo.

This is not the first time JYP has been kind to artists want to leave the agency, usually in the K-pop industry, if an idol or trainee wants to leave the agency during the contract time, the agency will say no or ask for a huge amount of compensation. But it seems JYP is an exception. Apart from Somi, there is a long list of those who left JYP during contract period, Hyuna, who was just kicked out by Cube, is another example.

We’re wishing all the best to Somi for a fresh start at her new agency!
