Bae Suzy’s (배수지) exclusive 7-year contract with JYP Entertainment is ending on 31st March 2017.
According Star News via Koreaboo, the miss A (미쓰에이) member’s contract with her label started on 1st March 2010.
While renewal plans are still in discussion, insiders say that there’s a very high chance that the “Yes No Maybe” singer will renew her contract. But if Suzy chooses to leave JYP, miss A might face a possible disbandment as the group has not been active since Jia departed last year.
In a statement, the South Korean entertainment powerhouse said:
“This coming Spring, Suzy’s contract will be expiring. The company is under very comfortable and friendly talks with Suzy regarding her contract renewal. At this time, it is hard to say anything concrete regarding the matter.”
Suzy debuted with miss A in 2010 and their debut single, “Bad Girl, Good Girl”, won the “Song of the Year” award at the 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA). She also became notable for her acting career and has had a string of successful dramas under her belt. Her most recent drama was “Uncontrollably Fond” with Kim Woo Bin, and she is slated to appear in upcoming SBS drama “While You Were Asleep” alongside Lee Jong Suk.
She recently made her solo debut through her first mini album, “Yes? No?”, and it ranked #1 spot as soon as it was released.
