Yikes, we certainly didn’t see this coming.
Super Junior M’s Henry, who has been with SM Entertainment for 10 years, has left the company. The decision was made after his exclusive contract expired and he opted to not renew it.
SM Entertainment confirmed it with a statement, saying, “Henry’s exclusive contract recently expired, and we have ended on good terms.”
The singer is believed to have plans to establish a one-man agency for his activities.
A source close to the issue also revealed, “I believe that Henry is planning to establish an independent company in Korea, and that he will consider establishing a company in China.”
Henry joined the company via their Global Audition in Canada in 2006. In 2008, he made his debut with Super Junior-M, a Chinese sub-unit of Super Junior.
The group achieved popularity with hit songs like “Break Down”, “Swing”, “Perfection”, and more. Their last album, “Swing”, was released in 2014. Since then, the group has been inactive due to members going for military enlistment.
Henry also has a successful solo career. His solo track “Trap” and variety appearances propelled him to mainstream fame and he has been active in variety show appearances. Since then, the Canadian-born idol has also released singles like “Girlfriend” and “Monster”.
