JR says all the NU'EST members' have renewed their contracts with Pledis in a handwritten letter to fans

NU'EST is continuing with Pledis Entertainment.

On January 31, leader JR shared a handwritten letter on the group's official fan cafe. The letter announced NU'EST has renewed their contract with the agency. 

JR's letter reads as follows:

"Hello, this is NU'EST's JR.


It's already a month into the new year. Are you completing the goals you've set at the beginning of the year? ^^ My members and I are working hard to keep each of the promises we made with you guys. And the first promise, we've decided to be with the Pledis CEO and family once again in order to show more growth and improvements of NU'EST.


We hope LOVEs will congratulate and support us with a happy mind, just like how we feel. We're also concerned about the things that many of you are worried about. We will work our best to show a better side of us by respecting, considering, and trusting one another. 

To the LOVEs who've always been our strong foundation, NU'ESET will become an encouragement to your daily life from now on. Please look forward to it. 


Thank you."

Not knowing the details I'd say this was a blunder, wish them wellbut don't expect Pledis to hold up their end of the contract :/

I think they will be okay. Since this time they can produce their own song with baekho and bumzu as the producers and their fandom also getting bigger this time around.

This is not surprising, of course. the Nu'Est members have been very loyal to the Pledis team, which makes me think that more was going on than we know and that Pledis probably doesn't mistreat them as much as it might seem from outside. Not knowing the story from inside, I feel like I can't judge really. I do want to see them being given a much better contract this time around with more time off when they need it. I want only the best for our boys.

No they were mistreated there are many facts about that. I think it was because Pledis didn't have money, but other things a well. They didn't even have TVs in their rooms until 2017 when fans purchased them. But they are loyal to each other and to Pledis since the CEO basically raised them. They were with Pledis for over 10 years for JR and Ren and JR was the first boy member of Pledis. However JR took the failure of the group on his own shoulders and never blamed Pledis or anyone. Because JR has a high level of conviction and dedication is why they signed on again. He is very loyal just like the rest of Nu'est to Pledis and they are very grateful to Pledis. I'm sure things are better now, they are making more money and I think Pledis allows them to have more of their money. I think the CEO cares for Nu'est members, the company just doesn't know how to manage multiple groups at one time.

I think that most of the actual abuse was while they were in Japan and Pledis wasn't able to protect them from that, it's true. However, the lack of money was because they weren't earning much for the company, but Pledis never turned them out, even then. I think the loyalty went both ways.

I'm so happy that they will be around for a longer time. All the LOVEs around the world are happy; first Nu_Week with Minhyun doing a solo Vlive and now this.

Pledis better step up this time around or LOVEs are going to make sure they know how they are screwing up. They slept on Nu'est the first time around when they had a strong debut and lots of interest. They have a nice wave of fans coming in at the moment so they need to be marketed properly.

For a long time Pledis didn't really do a whole lot for Nu'est either. Nu'est is getting more support not only because of Pledis, but because of CJ E&M/Stone Music Entertainment. Nu'est are the only artists in Pledis that are distributed by Stone Music Entertainment and they have been giving Nu'est a lot of activities. Also both Nu'est and Seventeen are self-producing idols. They write and compose all their own music. Ren is in charge of the concepts for Nu'est and their videos; Aron translates things into English; JR is out there at any variety show he can get on. Baekho writes and composes all of their songs. Ren is in different countries acting in dramas. Baekho is also a vocal coach and director for Pledis. Minhyun is a composer for Nu'est. The boy groups are producing everything for themselves. I'm not sure if the girl groups can do that. Besides in the case of Pristin, had the fans not bullied the youngest member making her ill and leave to go back to America maybe things would have been better. Even when Pristin could have had votes for an award show - that even had disbanded groups to be voted on Pristin came in 49th of 50 so the fans didn't even show support in that either. Maybe buy their album and they will comeback too. But maybe Pristin is in training to learn how to compose and write for themselves. It would be wise to teach them to do things for themselves.
