Looks like former 4Minute member Jiyoon will make her return to the music scene sooner than we thought!
According to All Kpop, the rapper has signed an exclusive contract with JS E&M and on Monday (8th August), the entertainment agency announced her solo debut plans. JS E&M also houses other talented artistes, such as actors Seo Ha Joon, Byun Jung Soo, Yang Mi Ra, and Chun Jung Myung as well as K-Pop idol rookie group, Tren-D.
“Jiyoon has unlimited potential. We have created a special producing team for Jiyoon to actively support her from music to acting and also on variety shows. She will be releasing a new song mid-October (this year). It will be a song encompassing her skills in dance, vocals, and rap from her 7 years with 4minute. The single will kick off her official solo career. The form of the single album has yet to be confirmed,” stated a representative from the label.
The label added that they will give the star unlimited support for her to freely express her potential as a singer.
25-year-old Jeon Jiyoon debuted with 4Minute in 2009 with their first single, “Hot Issue”, and the group quickly became one of the most popular female idol groups in K-Pop. She left the group in June 2016 to pursue a solo career.
Though we are excited to see what kind of music she’ll put out, we still miss 4Minute 🙁
