EXID’s Jeonghwa is in talks to sign an exclusive contract with J,WIDE-Company.
A source from J,WIDE-Company stated, “We recently held a meeting with EXID’s Jeonghwa. Although she hasn’t signed the contract yet, she’s positively considering [the offer].”
Last May, when EXID members’ contracts were set to expire, Banana Culture Entertainment revealed that Hani and Jeonghwa had decided to part ways with the agency. However, they clarified that this did not mean that EXID was disbanding.
After the news about their departure was revealed, EXID’s Hani and Jeonghwa both wrote heartfelt letters to their fans. Jeonghwa wrote, “I’m going to try my best to fulfill the long-awaited dream I’ve had since I was nine years old!” while asking fans to support her in her new journey.
As J,WIDE-Company is an agency specialized for actors, Jeonghwa appears to be considering acting activities for her future. Jeonghwa has also promised fans that she will be continuing her activities as a member of EXID, so she will be pursing a career as both a singer and actress.
J,WIDE-Company houses actors such as Kim Tae Ri, Lee Sang Yoon, Jung Hye Sung, Baek Jin Hee, and more.
