On September 22, JYP released a statement on their official website, saying, “After much discussion, Jo Kwon decided not to renew his contract with us. Jo Kwon and JYP Entertainment will always be cheering each other on. Please give lots of love and support to him.”
Jo Kwon became a JYP trainee in 2001 and remained in the agency for 16 years. He posted a photo of the message “Time for Change” on his personal Instagram, alongside the caption, “2001 – 2017 JYPE.”

We wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors!
