Also on January 3, MAKEUS Entertainment released a statement that said, “We will pour all our resources into supporting talented musicians so they can bring out their true musical capacities. Our agency will be building a new music label and focusing more on the music business. Jung Joon Young is the first artist to sign under our new label.”
The statement continued, “We made a new label just for Jung Joon Young, who is an all-around player that is able to work in many different fields such as music, broadcast, variety programs, and as a pro gamer. We intend to support him in all his entertainment activities, not only his musical capacities. We will put our resources into making it possible for him to promote as a musician and a multitalented entertainer.”
