Singers Yubin and Hyerim have left JYP Entertainment.
On the 28th, JYP Entertainment revealed through an official press release that “The contract with Yubin and Hyerim has ended on the 25th. After months of in-depth discussion, we have decided to not renew contracts.”
To follow up, they added “Yubin and Hyerim each have joined Wonder Girls in 2007 and 2010 and started working together with JYP since then. Yubin then extended her contract two times in 2014 and 2017 and was an active artist representing JYP for the past 13 years. Hyerim has also renewed her contract in 2017 and showcased her talents in various fields such as music, MC-ing etc.”
Furthermore, JYP expressed gratitude saying “When Wonder Girls challenged themselves into the American market, K-POP was an unknown genre to foreigners. In 2009, Wonder Girls created history by charting ‘Nobody’ as the first ever K-POP song to chart on Billboards single chart ‘HOT 100’ at 76th. It is an honor and we are thankful that we were able to accompany such cool artists.”
Finally, they added “Please give unchanging affection to the two who will be continuing their challenges in a new place. The company will be sincerely supporting the beautiful futures of Yubin and Hyerim as we have until now."
