ZE:A's Dongjun has parted ways with Star Empire.

Dongjun's contract with his former label came to an end back in January of this year, but due to his schedules with his KBS drama 'Shine Eun Soo', he remained with Star Empire until filming came to a wraps. After a lengthy discussion, the singer/actor ultimately decided to part ways with the label. 

Instead, Dongjun will now begin anew under Gold Moon, a label set up by ZE:A's former manager Hwang Jung Moon. The label told news outlets, "We have signed an exclusive contract with Dongjun, and will do our best with him from now on." 

Dongjun is the 4th ZE:A member to leave Star Empire for a new label. The first was Kwanghee, who signed with BONBOO ENT; second was Siwan who signed with Plum Entertainment; and third was Hyungsik, who went with UAA

Good luck to Dongjun under his new label!

I really hope the members find what they're looking for in their new contracts.

Anyone else remember when they had to allegedly work for free in the beginning? 🙄 Because sales of Jewelry were overestimated...

Wow, I only know 5 out of the group & 4 already left Star Empire. Glad they found their talents aside from being an idol. I wonder what's Kevin doing

The 4 members who left the company were the ones who were most popular during their Ze:a days lol.... the other members need to leave too. Their company isn't great :/

Well... two of them were enlisted during their contract so Minwoo and Taehyun have a few months left on their contract actually. Heechul just enlisted so he might be figuring things out after he comes back... Looks like Kevin might be freelancing (his radio gig doesn't seem to be related to SE) and same with Junyoung. So technically, asides from the two members with time still left, they all are technically done with the company

Not surprised, Star Empire's CEO seems like an asshole

We knew that when he slapped the model-idols on camera... and then explained that he didn't want all the girls to be messed up so if one girl messed up, the leader of 9Muse would get slapped instead

and here we have  the male After School a group that has obviously ended but their label is hell bent of claiming otherwise.

i thought EVERYONE part ways already with Star Empire? some of them still with SE?

Minwoo and Taehyun enlisted while there was still time left in their contracts so both of them have a few months left. After the SM slave contract mess in 2010 and 10 (or was it 14) year contracts were made illegal, right after the ZE:A boys debut, their contract was re-written so that their contract term was 7 years from the day of their debut, but not counting the time spent enlisted, so those two still have time left
