JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong has set up a new agency!
On May 4, Kim Jaejoong shared through an official statement, “I recently established the new agency iNKODE together with CEO Noh Hyun Tae, the former vice president of Cube Entertainment.”
Kim Jaejoong, who debuted as a member of TVXQ under SM Entertainment in 2004, left the team in 2009 and formed the group JYJ together with Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, who were also members of TVXQ, after signing with C-JeS Studios. After 14 years of being with C-JeS, Kim Jaejoong decided to leave the agency and take on a new challenge.
Kim Jaejoong, who became the head of the new agency, will participate in not only his own activities as an artist but also the production of new artists as the CSO (Chief Strategy Officer) of iNKODE. In addition to nurturing rookie idols, Kim Jaejoong plans to lead various businesses such as management of K-pop artists and actors with great potential.
CEO Noh Hyun Tae, who founded iNKODE with Kim Jaejoong, served as the vice president at Cube Entertainment and led the success of the groups BEAST and 4Minute. As the CEO of iNKODE, he plans to focus on discovering and producing new artists who will lead the next generation of K-pop.
