It’s official, GOT7 (갓세븐) will no longer be attached to JYP Entertainment.
Following Dispatch’s report that all 7 members won’t be renewing their contracts with JYP, the agency released an official statement just moments ago.
The statement reads:
“Hello. This is JYP Entertainment.
JYP has held thorough discussions with the GOT7 members ahead of the expiration of their exclusive contract on 19th January. As a result, both sides have agreed not to renew the contract while hoping for a fresh future.
GOT7 has performed exceptionally as a global idol group that represents K-pop since their debut on 16th January 2014.
We genuinely thank GOT7 for being part of the growth of K-pop and JYP, as well as I GOT7 and all fans who have been a source of motivation to GOT7’s activities with their endless support since their debut.
Our official relationship ends here, but JYP will sincerely cheer on the new future that the GOT7 members will advance into.”
Last night (Sunday, 10th January), Mark Tuan (마크투안) took to Twitter to assure GOT7 fans (Ahgase) that the K-pop group aren’t going anywhere. In fact, this is “just the beginning”, the 27-year-old rapper assured.
Subsequently, his bandmates – JB, Jinyoung, Jackson, Youngjae, Bambam, and Yugyeom – also took to their respective Instagram accounts to post the same wefie (pictured above). Since then, #GOT7FORVER has been trending worldwide.
