Kim Tae Dong Shares His Feelings About Conflict With Agency
“Produce 101 Season 2” star Kim Tae Dong, who is currently embroiled in a conflict with his agency Major 9 (formerly known as The Vibe Label), updated his fans on how he is feeling in the midst of it all.
On September 10, he wrote on his Instagram, “I have no idea what I’ve done wrong. All I did was trust what the adults said. I’ve never refused anything, and all I did was ask to let me go. I don’t know from whose perspective these settlements are being discussed. I don’t want to be misconstrued due to provocative news articles, and I don’t want to be affected by them.”
He continued, “So even though it’s hard, I am gaining more strength, and I’m practicing and trying harder. I think this is the most I can do for now.”
Kim Tae Dong then shared, “I laughed for the first time in awhile thanks to a friend that contacted me and went on a walk with me because he was worried I would have too much on my mind. Thank you so much,” and concluded, “It gives me strength to think of everyone that has waited for me, and I am so thankful.”

도대체 내가 어떤 잘못을 했는지 모르겠다… 그냥 어른들의 말을 철석같이 믿었던 게 전부인데.. 거부한 적도 없고, 놔달라고 했을 뿐인데. 누구의 입장에서 합의를 얘기하는지 모르겠다. 자극적인 기사들로 오해받고 싶지 않고, 영향받고 싶지도 않다. 그러기에 힘들지만 더 힘내고 있고, 더 열심히 연습하고 노력하고 있다. 이게 지금 내가 할 수 있는 최선인 것 같다. 마음이 복잡할까 봐.. 날 생각해서 연락해서 만나고 산책도 하고 오랜만에 형 덕분에 웃었다. 너무 고맙고! 기다려준 여러분들 생각에 힘이 나고 너무 고맙고 감사하다.
Kim Tae Dong’s debut with JBJ will depend on whether he can come to an agreement with his agency. Currently, the other six members of JBJ are preparing for their October debut.
