Nam Tae Hyun’s Agency Discontinued, South Club Signs With New Agency

Nam Tae Hyun and his band South Club have signed with a new agency. In a handwritten letter posted to his Instagram on November 5, Nam Tae Hyun announced that his agency The South has been dissolved, and that he is happy to be able to focus solely on music moving forward with a new agency.

Below is Nam Tae Hyun’s letter:

Hello. This is South Club’s Nam Tae Hyun.

First, I’d like to apologize for the delayed release of our five-track EP album.

Our band (with the same members) has found a new agency, and my agency The South has been discontinued. Though three years is a short time, I learned a lot while running my own company, and it was also difficult and overwhelming because certain systems were very weak. However, we’ve found a more established system and support in a new family, and I’m happy because now we can focus solely on music.

After a long discussion with our agency, we’ve decided to push back the release of the five songs we had planned.

We will be releasing a single album first, with a brighter, more popular track. After some refinement, we will return soon with great music.

I wanted to give you the news first, before the press release goes out. Thank you for always trusting me and waiting for me even though I am lacking, and for giving me so much love.

From Nam Tae Hyun.

안녕하세요. 사우스클럽 남태현입니다. 먼저, 발매 예정이던 다섯 곡 수록의 EP 앨범 발매가 늦어진 부분에 대하여 죄송하단 말씀드리고자 합니다. 저희 밴드(멤버 동일)에게 소속사가 생겼고 제가 운영하던 The South는 법인 해체를 하게 되었습니다. 3년이라는 비록 짧은 시간이지만 혼자 회사를 운영하며 배우기도 많이 배웠고 어떤 시스템들은 취약하여 힘들기도, 버겁기도 했습니다. 하지만 새로운 가족이 생기고 더욱 체계적인 시스템과 지원군들이 생겼기에 온전히 음악에 집중할 수 있게 되어 기쁘기도 합니다. 발매 예정이었던 기존 다섯 곡은 회사와 많은 회의를 거쳐 잠시 미뤄두기로 했습니다. 더 밝고 대중적인 곡과 함께 싱글로 앨범을 먼저 발매하기로 하였습니다. 끝까지 가다듬어 더 좋은 곡으로 ‘곧’ 찾아뵙겠습니다. 보도 자료가 나가기 전 제일 먼저 알려야겠다고 생각이 들었습니다. 항상 부족한 저 믿고 기다려주시고 과분한 사랑 주셔서 감사합니다. 남태현 올림.
