AKMU Renews Contracts With YG Entertainment
AKMU will be continuing their careers with YG Entertainment!
On January 26, YG Entertainment announced that with the expiration of their seven year contracts, AKMU has renewed with the company for five more years.
Lee Chanhyuk commented, “Honestly, it is difficult to find a company that thinks of the artists first as much as YG does. We did not experience trouble or conflicting opinions a single time over the past seven years, and the company led our young selves well while reliably supporting us in the path we are taking.” Lee Suhyun added, “We did not ever consider leaving YG.”
YG Entertainment stated, “The AKMU members are still young, but they are very thoughtful and mature. All of the YG staff members were really touched at the news of AKMU’s long-term contract renewal. As we have once again confirmed are trust in each other, YG will provide further support for AKMU and do our best for them to grow well as artists.”
After competing on “K-pop Star Season 2” in 2012, AKMU officially debuted under YG Entertainment in 2014.
