YG Entertainment stated that one of their newest artists, Boyfriend’s Park Hyun Jin, has terminated his exclusive contract with the agency.
Boyfriend is the duo, consisting of young artists Lee Jong Seob and Park Hyun Jin, that won SBS’s “K-Pop Star 6.” The duo signed exclusive contracts with YG Entertainment after the program just over a month ago. Boyfriend impressed all three judges of the program with not only their vocal talent but also with their rap, dance, and performance capabilities. The two began officially training at YG Entertainment two weeks ago.
However, after thorough discussions with YG Entertainment, Park Hyun Jin has decided to leave the agency due to differences in music style. YG Entertainment stated, “Although Park Hyun Jin is still very young, we have decided to respect his decision. Even though we will not be working together, we will continue to show our support for Park Hyun Jin’s future.”
The other half of Boyfriend, Kim Jong Seob, will remain at YG Entertainment and continue his training.
