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?

RIP her career tbh. Even if she manages to debut in the next few years, any time wasted in the dungeon could hurt her. K-pop moves at a brutal pace and new It girls crop up all the time. The only scenario in which this makes sense to me is if she actually got kicked out of JYP.

The only benefits to signing with YG (esp as a woman) are knowing that you'll be paid well and won't have your health run into the ground with constant schedules. But that comes at the cost of your longevity in the industry, bc like someone said above, once YG says you're career is over, it's over.
