It has been reported that After School member Jooyeon is currently in discussion to renew her contract with her agency, Pledis Entertainment, ahead of the contract expiration at the end of this month.
On December 22, a representative of Pledis Entertainment explained, “It is true that Jooyeon’s contract will expire this coming December 31. She is currently in talks with the agency on her position.”
The rep also shared that it is still undecided whether or not she will be leaving After School to begin an acting career: “We are discussing what direction she wants to take in the future, however, nothing has been decided. After School’s contract in Japan will end in June of next year, so she will still promote until then. The other After School members have a lot of time left on their contract period.”
The group has continued to run on a ‘graduation system,’ but Jooyeon’s graduation has not yet been confirmed.
