Krystal’s exclusive contract with SM Entertainment is expiring soon.
On August 18, Ilgan Sports released a report citing an industry source who stated that f(x)’s Krystal was leaving SM Entertainment and preparing to begin a new chapter in her life in a new place.
According to the report, Krystal has already met with several well-known actor management companies, many of which have reached out to her first after hearing that she was becoming a free agent. It was said that while she has held meetings with these agencies, she has not yet discussed a detailed contract with any of them. She is reportedly looking for an agency that will both support her as an actress and go along with her plans to release music.
SM Entertainment stated, “Our exclusive contract with Krystal expires in late August. We will continue to have discussions with Krystal about renewing the contract.”
f(x)’s Amber and Luna left SM Entertainment last year following the expiration of their contracts.
