Jeon Somi Says There Are No Hard Feelings Between Her And JYP Entertainment Despite Her Departure
Jeon Somi claims all is well between her and former agency JYP Entertainment.
In celebration of her much-awaited solo debut, Jeon Somi shared several stories at her press conference held on June 13. Among those she talked about was the reason why she left her previous agency JYP Entertainment and how things have been between them since her departure.
The singer, well-known and loved for previously being I.O.I’s center, finally made her debut as a solo artist after a long wait. Earlier this year, she made a huge decision which led to her finally getting to kick off her career – and it was none other than transferring to a new agency.
Departing from JYP Entertainment, Somi found a home at the YG subsidiary company The Black Label afterwards. In the press conference, she talked about why she eventually came to her decision.
“We had different directions when it came to music. We had plenty of discussions around the time I was leaving. At that time, we had a lot of conversations,” she shared.
Now that she had transferred companies, the singer cleared the air about any possible hard feelings between her and her former agency.
“There was no discord between us, and we both were cheering each other on when I left. I cheer on JYP, and I think JYP probably cheers me on too,” Somi added.
On June 13, she also released the music video for her first-ever solo song “Birthday”. The singer revealed that the track actually contains a beautiful meaning to her because it celebrates her solo debut and signifies that she is born again as a solo act.
