Baek Yerin leaves JYP and is starting her own independent label

Hello, this is Yerin!
It’s suddenly become very cold out, are you doing well?
Sadly, my contract with JYP is ending as of September 14.

I have worked hard while at JYP for the long time of 12 years, ever since I was in elementary school. I received the gift of great and precious opportunities, and although I’m still lacking now, they taught me many things as I became the person I am and gave me gifts. I am so grateful to the president who worked together with me for a long time and played a role that was sometimes like my parent and sometimes like my teacher and guardian, to Park Jin Young (we’ve decided to be best friends now), and to everyone at JYP.

Also, with the help of those around me, I’m going to start an independent label! I feel sadness too because we’ve been together for a long time, and doing something on my own is a bit scary, but I want to gather up strength and let you hear a lot of great things!

I’ll try to keep improving.
I’m always grateful for the support and love you give me!

After signing with JYP Entertainment in 2007, Baek Yerin trained in South Korea and the United States until she debuted as a member of the duo 15& with Park Jimin in 2012. After their debut with “I Dream,” 15& went on to release songs including “Somebody,” “Can’t Hide It,” “Sugar,” and more.

Baek Yerin then made a solo debut in 2015, and she most recently released the mini album “Our Love Is Great” featuring the title track “Maybe It’s Not Our Fault” this March, which was a huge hit on the charts.

Park Jimin also parted ways with JYP Entertainment after the end of her contract in August.

I’m so excited for her :))))) I think she’s so talented so the lacking part I feel kinda bad reading, but I know she means it when she’s going to keep improving!

Lol that letter was cute? I’m proud of her for striking out on her own and forging her own path. Hopefully this means more frequent music releases!

12 years and still so young.

I'm proud of her and wish her only good things now.

good for her. she's more indie style in performance so i can't imagine her being an idol

I wish her the best! Both her and Jimin are so talented and deserve better management. I love most of her stuff on her soundcloud.
