Suzy to Part Ways With JYP

Hello. This is JYP Entertainment.

We are announcing that JYP’s exclusive contract with artist Suzy will end on March 31.

We have had thorough discussions over the past few months, and we came to the mutual decision to not renew the contract.

Following Suzy’s debut with the group miss A in 2010, she has worked her hardest in JYP while showing exceptional passion.

In 2017, her contract was renewed once through our mutual trust, continuing our special relationship.

We express our sincere gratitude to Suzy, who went through thick and thin with JYP for the long period of nine years from 2010 until now and provided the joy of growth together [with JYP].

In addition, we express gratitude to the fans who have provided generous love to all the achievements and challenges that JYP and Suzy have taken on together.

Although our official relationship has ended, JYP will sincerely cheer on the path that Suzy will walk down in the future.

Thank you.

i'm not surprised, not too long ago i kept thinking how quiet it was around Suzy and i kept wondering if her contract was nearly ending again, now it makes sense

She needs an agency that focuses more on acting so I’m not surprised! Good for her.

This pleases me tbh
I hope she finds an agency that focuses on her acting

I heard she is joining Gong Yoo's agency?

What a beautiful parting statement. JYP definitely doesn't get things right all the time but I really like that they usually let people go when they want to leave and do so in a warm way like this.

I agree!

yea, with Wonder Girls too it didn't feel like a bad parting too!

This is my impression too, like after you've been through the fire with them JYP seems to be happy to let them fly free. He may be questionable, but he might also be good in this area.

The end of an era
I was surprised to see her renewing for two years instead of going to an acting agency, I think that would be the best move for her career and she hasn't been JYPE's priority for a while. She can still release music from time to time with an acting company anyway

Also omg it's been nine years already since Miss A's debut? I feel old lol

god i miss miss a

i hope she doesnt fully give up music!
aures 26th-Mar-2019 11:09 am (UTC)
oh i agree! finally someone
i love her singing voice, it's so calming
juhli 26th-Mar-2019 11:35 am (UTC)
it is! Not everyone needs to have power vocals.
I also always liked to watch her music videos, she's always so gorgeous in them.
aures 26th-Mar-2019 11:44 am (UTC)
no that's why i like her voice so much, it's so soothing and relaxing

yes, she's gorgeous, very elegant and she has such a classic and classy appearance that doesn't scream too much yet i can't stop looking, i really appreciate her

Yes! I enjoy her solo music a lot and it'd be a waste if she focused 100% on acting
camouflagecat 26th-Mar-2019 03:31 pm (UTC)
Mte I love her solo stuff
goshipgurl 26th-Mar-2019 09:50 am (UTC)
Not surprised, she wanted to promote more as an artist but JYPE fucked up all two of her promotions.

Suzy is one of those actresses that I could actually see go global/international. She just has that 'it' factor that makes her so lovable and yet star quality. Loving the nice words from JYP here ♥
dior_chic 26th-Mar-2019 12:26 pm (UTC)
It’s so crazy that she was JYP’s golden child for so long, the idea of her leaving seemed so foreign to me. But things have changed, I just want her to be thriving and happy, hope I see her in music still!

i'm definitely not surprised, i just hope she continues music!
myungung 26th-Mar-2019 02:14 pm (UTC)
jype is terrible with solos so I'm not surprised Suzy left. I believe the next agency will help her to release more music, while at the same time allowing her more acting projects
thatchicksaywha 26th-Mar-2019 04:13 pm (UTC)
this isn't surprising at all, but i wonder if she'll join with an acting agency or try to start her own? she's so famous that she probably has her own personal team already, so a more 360-deal type agency like jyp isn't really needed at this stage in her career
goldenrosalie 26th-Mar-2019 04:13 pm (UTC)
i'm so happy! after so many years of wait i finally live long enough to see her leave jype. they failed her solo album promo so miserably it felt almost like a sabotage. i'm really glad she finally made this choice.
daynr 26th-Mar-2019 06:53 pm (UTC)
I don't really know much about her, and her acting isn't stellar (but has improved) but my impression is that she gets joy from performing. I hope she gets to do more of that.

I really hope they parted as well as it sounds and remain cordial.
ashdevilrun23 26th-Mar-2019 09:44 pm (UTC)
wonder where she'll go now..
at least they parted nicely
aridnili 27th-Mar-2019 02:01 am (UTC)
I’m still in a awe. 8/9 years of my life I dedicate to following her every endeavor, insane success and crazy amount of stupid controversies for just doing her best with a smile. That was one of the sweetest parting letters from a company I’ve ever seen, that’s how much Suzy was loved although she didn’t get half of the promotion she deserved for being loyal to JYPE for the last 2 years. TWICE happened and now all the attention is on them and it was all thanks to Suzy and 2PM that they could be well promoted to solidify their career. Unfortunately Miss A had to die in the process and WG barely survived to see their juniors, so that only shows that JYPE will focus on the new and that includes proper promotions for new acts like ITZY and SK too. It’s only a logical choice that she goes for a more low profile/serious acting company. She’s not naturally gifted in acting, but she works hard and never took it for granted, so I hope she has the kind of growth SHK had. I also think she will get a HUGE slice of whatever she does regarding CFs, solo promotions and eventually singing concerts, where I think she shines the most. I adore her voice, so I will just watch my baby bird fly away now and show what she’s made of.

i have no idea why i thought she had already left JYP OTL but i guess i'm not surprised that she finally has decided to leave \o/
