Jeon Somi reportedly signs contract with YGE sub-label The Black Label



Jeon Somi may have found her new agency!

On September 23, Sports Chosun exclusively reported that Jeon Somi has signed a contract with The Black Label.

The Black Label is a subsidiary label of YG Entertainment headed by Teddy, working with artists like singer Zion.T and rapper and producer Kush. The Black Label is based in an independent space located near the YG Entertainment building, and has been receiving the full support of YG Entertainment to work with trainees and try out various music genres.

The Black Label was contacted to confirm the reports, but a source from the agency simply stated, “We are currently in the process of checking the facts.”

Jeon Somi appeared in survival programs “Sixteen” and “Produce 101,” where she won first place in the finale and made her debut in the project group I.O.I. Since then, she has been pursuing activities under JYP Entertainment, until it was announced in August that she had terminated her contract with the agency.

So it looks like nothing has been confirmed yet but thoughts, Omona?

She really doesn't match their soloist roster in terms of talent imo but anything is better than her dad

somi sis, what are you doing? she voluntarily signed up for a forever stay in the dungeon.

she performed gashina in berlin last week and she def needs to be in a group, but i dont think that teddy's or YG's style fit her

interesting. i know it's not technically the same as YG but this is the first instance I can think of a trainee/artist hopping between the big 3
based on her roller coaster/gashina performances i actually think she has potential as a soloist now with the right song

I think it definitely happens for trainees. She is obviously the most famous. Didn't CL go from JYP to YG as a trainee? And I know woojin from stray kids was a SM trainee before going to JYP and in the SK survival show they met a YG trainee who used to be a JYP trainee.

So instead of Sixteen s2 she'll be on whatever reality show YGE is doing for BP2.0 lol gl sis

It's the fifteen minutes of success. Like I'm honestly astonished about people who say YG is a great company. Like yes, they do get you peak popularity but once YG decides you're done you're done.

i mean... ok

Is Teddy prepping for Little Pink? Somi is an odd pic for a Black Label solo but I could see her in a younger BP. It would be funny if after everything she ends up being in an edgier Twice style group.

there was a report of them doing just that with Black Label and YGE trainees. :/
gathyou 23rd-Sep-2018 03:06 pm (UTC)
Well, good luck with that. We're not going to see her release a lot of music under YG - even the sublabels :')

Her career "receiving attention" in YG is weird to me but okay I guess.

YG supposedly having beef with JYP for the latter surpassing 1 trillion is the one bit that didn't surprise me. It seems like YG always has beef with someone idk idk

I wonder if she’s gonna be in the supposed survival show yg is cooking up (which I’m surprised he’s doing so soon since the mixnine fiasco is still fresh).

hopefully this was the best move for her I feel bad for somi having to be in so many temporary groups especially at a young age and yet still not “officially” debuting, it could take a toll on a person.
miwa201 23rd-Sep-2018 04:50 pm (UTC)
this is so odd to me, idk she doesn't really fit the yg image. i've always thought of her with a bubbly image (esp paired with her kidzbop voice)
jyushimatsu 23rd-Sep-2018 08:07 pm (UTC)
Lmao Kidz Bop voice
miss_suunshinee 23rd-Sep-2018 05:32 pm (UTC)
after her father said he wasnt managing her i was wondering what kind of agency they would pick ..... but i wasnt expecting her to join ziont label tbh 🤔
yxerin 23rd-Sep-2018 06:46 pm (UTC)
idk. this feels kinda bad man

title or description
It baffles me how girls still want anything to do with YG. I hope it's a short contract, or that she got a sweet deal for a couple albums and solo activities at least. I don't see any other reason why would she sign with them.

And I really hope she's done with survival shows.

Uhhh lmao. Good luck with living in the dungeon. I’m guessing her dad cut some kind of deal. But seriously tho, she’s always struck me as more of a jyp idol.
