They agreed on staying together, but they disagreed on the choice of their agency. The band comprising of members namely JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam and Yugyeom have been with JYP since 2014.
Right after the news surfaced, GOT7 fans started trending "7 or nothing" on Twitter.
"GOT7 is close to each other", an official shared. Jackson Wang, who is the CEO of the Team Wang label, will carry out his global activities under his label and work on Korean activities through a separate agency. JYP said it has had some deep discussions with members prior to the expiration of the exclusive contract during which they concluded that they would not renew the contract.
Each GOT7 member will be focusing on their solo activities but they reassured fans that they won't be disbanding.
Youngjae, on the other hand, was reportedly scouted by Sublime Artist Agency, which also has artists like Rain, EXID's Hani, and Song Kang Ho.
The internationally famous K-Pop group will be celebrating their anniversary very soon, but the entertainment agency has already released an official statement regarding the future of their bond with GOT7. Finally, Yugyeom is in the final stages of signing a contract with the singer, songwriter and established in 2013 with AOMG, a South Korean hip-hop and R&B record label. For his actions in Korea, he'll obtain the assistance of a content material manufacturing company, and he's reportedly in talks to signal a contract with with MakeUs Entertainment.
