With his contract expiration, Jo Kwon decided to renew with the agency, but Seulong and Jinwoon have decided to leave.
JYPE rep revealed to Newsen, "Jo Kwon has recently decided to remain at JYP, while Seulong decided to go to SidusHQ. Jinwoon is currently negotiating a contract with Mystic Entertainment."
So does this mean this is the end of 2AM? To that question, the rep responded, "Seulong and Jinwoon both decided to head to different agencies to take on new challenges and changes. As Jo Kwon has been carrying out roles in musicals, he'll continue focusing on singing and musicals... This was all wrapped up with no ill feelings between the members. It seems they'll all be focusing on their individual activities for the time being, but because the members have a great relationship and are also on good terms with JYP, if the conditions and requirements are right, there is the possibility that they can carry on group activities. So it's not that they've officially ended group activities."
So rest assured fans, 2AM have not disbanded! We may be seeing individual activities from them for now, but like the rep revealed, the group is open to promoting together if the timing is right. We hope that timing will be sooner than expected, but in the meantime, let's wish each member the best of luck on their new challenges!
