Well considering Somi left JYP after IOI was over, which was a twist...so I won't be too surprised if Lai Kuan Lin leaves bc of Cube controversies lately.

Even if he does sign with a Chinese agency, that doesn’t mean that he’s leaving Cube. Cube pride themselves on making diverse, international groups, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were several other Chinese members preparing to debut with him. (G)I-dle have three Koreans and three foreigners so it’s not THAT far fetched to assume that Cube could be doing something similar with their next boy group, especially considering how much money they can make in the Chinese market

It depends on what his contract with Cube is, generally speaking when a trainee debut they sign a contract that starts on the date of their debut, the contract can be for a set time period like 7 years or it could be for the length of time of the group, contractually/legally no other outside agency can talk to him until about one month before his contract ends, if "he" is talking to other agencies and not "Cube" on his behalf then that's a large indicator he's leaving Cube (or at least thinking about it) when his contract ends with Wanna One's disbandment.

Good point. Plus he's still under age in Korea so even if he had signed a 7 year contract his parents could still ask for it to be terminated and Cube would have to agree, that's how Somi left JYP.
