Woo Jin Young’s Agency Confirms That “MIXNINE” Final Group’s Debut Is Canceled
The “MIXNINE” finalists are no longer debuting as a group.
On May 2, it was reported that YG Entertainment wrapped up its final meeting with the other agencies last week. YG Entertainment suggested a three-year contract with the group releasing an album each year. The members would promote domestically and internationally for six months a year, and then spend the other six months in their respective agencies.
In response to this offer, some of the agencies expressed that it would be difficult to follow this contract. They asked to keep the duration shorter as stated in the original contract, but YG Entertainment reportedly refused to do so. According to a source from the industry, the agencies were unable to reach an agreement.
YG Entertainment did not respond to these reports, but Woo Jin Young’s agency Happyface Entertainment confirmed that the “MIXNINE” debut plans have been canceled and that Woo Jin Young has returned to the agency as a trainee.
