i can't imagine anyone being surprised by this, it's not like they've ever done much for her and she's been VERY vocal about their mistreatment of her

when's yerin's contract up?

Baek Ahyeon and Yerin's contracts should end this month.

good! fly girls fly!!!
lil_poisonfrog 6th-Aug-2019 12:40 am (UTC)
Is there a reason 15& wasn't more active? From what I can tell their singles did pretty well. I've heard there was creative differences between her and Yerin but idk if that's true.
dior_chic 6th-Aug-2019 01:00 am (UTC)
Yea I’d like to know the truth too. Also do the girls stay in touch? If they don’t I’m assuming they weren’t that close
suggestivepeach 6th-Aug-2019 03:57 am (UTC)

Yeah they both said they had different styles. They were only put together bc jyp didn’t want them to be alone.

i wonder if yerin will stay? since studio j pretty much let her do what she wants. also where is baek ah yeon?
dior_chic 6th-Aug-2019 01:00 am (UTC)
Omg I thought Yerin was released this whole time 👀
hpn88 6th-Aug-2019 01:23 am (UTC)
you would think - but no. her contract must be up soon too. or maybe she re-signed?
pikapika217 6th-Aug-2019 01:15 am (UTC)
Baek is do for her mini this year, she got one last year and the year before IIRC
juhli 6th-Aug-2019 07:19 am (UTC)
Im not sure she will, didnt she also air her frustrations about not being allowed to put out an album? And now, with her indie band and stuff...
dongsaengkiller 6th-Aug-2019 12:56 am (UTC)
Good for her!
dior_chic 6th-Aug-2019 12:59 am (UTC)
Yay she’s free!!

Also the disbanding line I find amusing as 15& was dead and buried for years to me, like I didn’t need confirmation it was a fact lol. Sad though as I loved their work together.

Good for her tbh. I’ve been mad since 2015 about 15& now we getting reciprocity. Also Studio J was a sham (until they started to focus on Day6). 1 down, 2 more to go (Yerin and Ah Yeon)
sweetestbliss1 6th-Aug-2019 02:33 pm (UTC)
Day6 writes and produces their own stuff. If they didn't, I doubt they would be so active. Basically, JYP is really bad at managing solo artists and anyone who is not their top group at the moment. I guess you can say that with any of the other big labels though.
cxxl 6th-Aug-2019 04:25 pm (UTC)
I’m not disagreeing with you in the slightest but I meant in terms of management. Day6 can write and produce all their stuff they want but somebody is funding it, and quite frankly they do seem to be the most active of that branch (although that doesn’t include the fact that Baek Yerin seems against active promotions). But yes JYP is focused on their big (read idol) acts. Knew this when they lost a series of acts in a row over the last few years.
sweetestbliss1 7th-Aug-2019 12:03 am (UTC)
Ahh yeah, but I just meant that it must help somewhat that Day6 writes and produces their own stuff so JYP doesn't have to spend extra resources. And Day6 doesn't have to like, wait around until those writers/producers are free since they do their own stuff.
bubble_monkey9 6th-Aug-2019 01:48 am (UTC)
this isn't surprising. they never promoted her
aeries_amethyst 6th-Aug-2019 02:25 am (UTC)
can't even pretend to be surprised, not like jyp was really doing much with her in the first place. as for 15& disbanding, i'm not even sure if jimin and yerin were that close with each other, so that certainly didn't help tensions in the group and creative differences.
frequency 6th-Aug-2019 02:55 am (UTC)
i would've been surprised if she had stayed w/ them. JYP never did shit for either one of them, so good for her.
lizanka23 6th-Aug-2019 03:05 am (UTC)
great! hopefully she can finally shine now. love her solo stuff so can't wait for more releases from her
benihime99 6th-Aug-2019 03:28 am (UTC)
Why would she? That company treated her poorly and prevented her from doing what she wanted
suggestivepeach 6th-Aug-2019 04:02 am (UTC)

Good for her! But honestly I’m not that optimistic if she’ll find much success elsewhere. If I’m not mistaken, her last couple comebacks didn’t do too well?

horichansenpai 6th-Aug-2019 05:21 am (UTC)

Fly free, girl!

juhli 6th-Aug-2019 07:23 am (UTC)
15& is such old news, i cant believe were still talking it.
Time flies, i cant believe its been 7 years since kpopstar already. Hoping Jimin can prosper more somewhere else! I think she would have more commercial success if other people wrote for her/shed do ballad osts/features with rappers. But in the end, if shes happier writing her own stuff, im not gonna fault her for that.
gathyou 6th-Aug-2019 07:43 am (UTC)
Lol is anyone surprised?
I hope she finds a good agency and is able to keep releasing music!
magicpineapple 6th-Aug-2019 11:37 am (UTC)

I’m happy for her. Idk why JYP never let her do anything when she was chomping at the bit to put out music. Also wondering if she’ll continue to do ASC?
kastih 9th-Aug-2019 02:29 am (UTC)
finally. they ruined her last comeback and i'm still slightly bitter over that....

i know a number of her fans want her to leave asc but at the moment?in all honesty?that's where her non-family-given money is coming from. i really like her songs and i've started to like her more again since she's calmed on that "sassy" thing she was doing so i'm rooting for her either way. i mentioned before that i've been following her since kpopstar(though i only really cared about hayi) so hopefully she finds her path and can happily stick to it.
