Rumours run rife that the GOT7’s main dancer, Yugyeom, would be leaving JYP Entertainment for AOMG.

JYP Entertainment, one of the “Big 3” entertainment labels in South Korea, manages chart-topping groups like GOT7, TWICE, ITZY, Stray Kids and more. 

On the other hand, up-and-rising hip-hop label AOMG, founded by Jay Park, houses South Korean hip-hop icons like Simon Dominic, Gray and Loco. Yugyeom was slated to be their newest addition, after they signed on soloist Lee Hi last July.

Details were unclear at that point in time, and it was not known whether or not Yugyeom would leave the septet, which comprises JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and himself.

It was until today, 10 Jan, when Korean entertainment tabloid Dispatch reported that GOT7 will be disbanding after their contract ends in 2021. They signed with JYP Entertainment for 7 years, since their debut in 2014.

Their participation at the 35th Golden Disc Awards, held over the weekend, will be their last official appearance together as a group, as members go separate ways thereafter.

There’s no doubt that the septet is tightly knit and their brotherhoods reigns superior. Their choice was not due to any disputes within their group. Instead, it was because of differing opinions of the “choice of the agency”, a K-pop industry professional reveals.

Member Mark Tuan had posted a group photo on Twitter earlier today with a caption which states that “[n]othing is coming to an end, just the beginning”. He added that the past seven years, presumably during his stint in GOT7, were the “best years of his life”.

In other news, The septet have just bagged the “Best Album” award at the Golden Disc Awards today, which marks their fifth consecutive year of winning the award. -HallyuLife.com
