BIGBANG's G-Dragon Officially Parts Ways With YG Entertainment

BIGBANG’s G-Dragon and his longtime agency YG Entertainment will be officially parting ways.

Previously on December 18, G-Dragon was acquitted of his drug-related charges.

On December 20, Galaxy Corporation—the company that G-Dragon was reported to sign with—shared that they will be holding an official press conference on December 21 to explain and outline G-Dragon’s drug-related case following his acquittal as well as to discuss his future activities for 2024. They further stated that G-Dragon will not be present at the press conference.

However, Sports Seoul also reported that there was a likelihood of G-Dragon renewing his contract with YG Entertainment. Following the reports, a source from YG Entertainment shared that it is difficult to comment on the matter.

Later in the day, YG Entertainment released the following statement on BIGBANG’s official website.

This is YG Entertainment.

G-Dragon was one of the representative artists of our agency, and all the time together with him since his debut with BIGBANG in 2006 has been an honor.

We sincerely wish G-Dragon success on his new start.

We ask fans for lots of encouragement and support.

Thank you.

G-Dragon’s contract with YG Entertainment expired in June earlier this year. At the time, YG Entertainment shared an update on his contract status, stating that although their exclusive contract with G-Dragon expired, they are collaborating with him through a separate contract for his other activities such as advertisement and more.

Wishing G-Dragon all the best on his new start!
