L.Joe has decided to leave TEEN TOP.

It looks like fans' worries have sadly come true. L.Joe filed for a nullification of contract from T.O.P Media. Originally, his contract would last until January 2018. His biggest issue with his label is that they are not letting him have solo promotions.

The friction started last year in October of 2016, where he met with T.O.P Media about renewing his contract. He had decided to leave TEEN TOP and stand by himself, and the label apparently put limits on his solo promotions.

The label did not interact diligently with the producers. Even though he was repeatedly contacted to appear after being offered a salary that fit his role, acting experience, and recognition, the label did not make any negotiations on his appearance. For a drama 'A' who contacted L.Joe first because they wanted to cast him, the label asked for a salary 7 times his previous, and the offer fell through.

Stay tuned for updates.

    He spent years working for them, it's about time that he goes and does something more fit for himself

    Bad, one of fav groups, but if the story with the company is true, first screw the assho...who thought they could control his carrier like that, second, I'm happy he's leaving, he's a good artist and I want  to see more of him, unfortunately Teen Top is not as they were before. Big Hit is the company that I want too see him in.

    Getting only one side here but all I'm seeing is another kid who can't keep his word and wants more money. Next?

    Then you need glasses. He told TOP Entertainment he wasn't renewing his contract with Teen Top but he would stay if he could promote as an actor. TOP Ent. repayed his loyalty by turning down the mountain of acting jobs he was offered and when directors asked for him personally his agency demanded an exorbitant sum for him to appear. Oh and his contract was up. So that part of the story is incorrect.

    As long as his contract is up then he's not trying to get out of anything and he's just done. that little fact can kinda change everything. Is there another article I can reference?

    You're out of your tiny little mind if you think Big Hit is going to destroy the dynamic of Bangtan.

    Good for him. A lot of the groups are being treated badly and not even being paid (Some).

    Top media has been ignoring Teen Top for a while so I could understand his frustration. :( I hope he's happy wherever he chooses to go. L.Joe deserves that much at least.
