Mad Clown Leaves Starship Entertainment And Thanks Agency In Heartwarming Post

Rapper Mad Clown has parted ways with Starship Entertainment.

On September 30, Starship Entertainment posted a photo of Mad Clown on Twitter with the caption, “Goodbye, Mad Clown! We were happy to have been able to be together with rapper Mad Clown, the pride of Starship Entertainment. You worked hard. Thank you.”

Mad Clown posted the same photo on Instagram and shared his thoughts on leaving the agency.

He wrote, “Hello. This is Mad Clown. It’s already been five years since I decided to join Starship, and the time has flown by. My contract with the agency has ended as of today. We talked a lot about the directions we each [hope to take in the future], and Starship has decided to cheer me on as I go my own way as an artist.

“When I think back to [where I was] five years ago, I think my relationship with Starship was truly a blessing, and the Mad Clown of today only exists because of the time I spent together [with the agency]. I especially learned a lot while working on my first single ‘Stupid in Love.’ My experience from that time was a huge asset to me as a mainstream singer.

“There are many agencies who do good work, but there aren’t many that also feel like a family at the same time. Right now, I, who have decided to go out on my own, feel like a 20-year-old college student who has just moved out of his family home. Starship is an agency that still feels like family to me.

“You worked really hard taking care of me for the past five years. I hope that I was also an artist who was able to give you something as well. Thank you so much for everything up until now!”

He then added the hashtags, “Starship,” “Mad Clown,” “good-bye,” and “family.”

We wish Mad Clown the best of luck in his future endeavors!

안녕하세요. 매드클라운입니다. 스타쉽과 함께하기로 했던게 벌써 5년전인데, 시간이 이렇게나 빨리 지나갔네요. 회사와 저는 오늘부로 계약이 종료되었습니다. 서로의 방향에 대해 많은 이야기를 나누었고 스타쉽은 아티스트로서 매드클라운의 홀로서기를 응원해주기로 하였습니다. 5년전을 생각해보면, 스타쉽과의 인연은 정말로 행운이었고 함께 할 수 있었기에 지금의 매드클라운이 있을 수 있다고 생각을 합니다. 특히 첫 싱글 ‘착해빠졌어’를 작업했을때 참 많은것을 배웠습니다. 그때의 경험은 대중가수로서 저에게 두고두고 큰 재산이 되었습니다. 일을 잘하는 회사는 많지만 동시에 가족같은 느낌의 회사는 많지 않습니다. 홀로서기를 결심하게된 지금 저는 가족으로부터 막 독립을 시작한 스무살 대학생의 느낌입니다. 스타쉽은 여전히 저에게 가족같은 의미의 회사입니다. 5년동안 저를 보살펴 주시느라 정말 고생많으셨습니다. 저도 여러분께 무언가를 드릴 수 있었던 아티스트였으면 좋겠습니다. 그동안 정말 감사했습니다! #스타쉽 #매드클라운 #good-bye #가족
