AOMG

While the majority of K-Pop idols should probably rely on their agency to make their careers into a lasting and profitable one, there have been a select few stars who made the best decision of their life and career by leaving JYP Entertainment.

It's safe to say that these people were destined for greater things and that they were born to make it.

You can check them out below.

 

Jay Park

It's no secret that a lot of people have loads of respect and love for hip-hop R&B singer Jay Park. K-Pop idol group just wasn't his thing and he took matters into his own hands by leaving JYP Entertainment and probably making more money than he would have made if he stayed in his former agency. Not only that, he's pretty much monopolized the hip-hop R&B scene in South Korea and even signed with veteran US rapper Jay-Z's Roc Nation. And now, rappers in Korea are literally lining up to be taken under his wing in his label AOMG.

SunMi

SunMi's solo career definitely seems to be a lot cooler than her days back in JYP girl group Wonder Girls. Single after single(Gashina, Heroine, Siren), she's managed to top the charts and establish herself as one of the most popular solo female K-Pop idols in the scene.

HyunA

While it's debatable about whether HyunA was better off in Wonder Girls or 4Minute, we have to say that her journey didn't necessarily end in a complete sour note when cutting ties off with both JYP Entertainment and Cube Entertainment. In the end, she found true love with her hubby E'Dawn, and she seems to have found happiness that she couldn't have acquired had she chosen a different path.

a select few stars who made the best decision of their life and career by leaving JYP Entertainment. Pls pick better examples.... Note that Jay Park didn't 'decide' to leave JYP. He was literally kicked out the country, following his old Myspace scandal where he insulted Korea/ Koreans. JYP only terminated his contract a year later, when he was 'exiled' in the US. Hyuna's parents pulled her out of Wonder Girls after 5mths because at 14yrs, she couldn't cope with the stress. She would only reappear 2 yrs later, with 4 Minute. Sunmi left JYP after 10yrs and >40 show… Read more »
