Jeon So Mi leaves kind message for fans concerned about her inactivity, in light of ITZY's recent debut

It seems that fans grew particularly restless about Jeon So Mi's recent inactivity, in light of her former labelmates ITZY making their grand debut this week. 

It's no secret that if Jeon So Mi had chosen to stay as a trainee under JYP Entertainment after the end of her project group IOI promotions, she may very well have debuted as a part of ITZY; however, last year, Jeon So Mi chose to end her contract with JYPE in favor of signing on as a solo artist under YG Entertainment's The Black Label

Regarding fans' vocal concerns, Jeon So Mi took to her Instagram story to respond, "To my loving fans. Don't think I'm far away and please don't be depressed or down waiting for me. Cause I am really not that far away from you guys :). Really that day is going to come! So I wish you all! To be excited! And don't get me wrong. I WANT EVERYTHING TO BE PERFECT. So it's just really me: being EXTRA GREEDY ;) Hope you have a wonderful day. Love you, wish you the best, love you."

We hope to see Jeon So Mi debut as a solo artist very soon!

Itzy feels like an over hype group, the debut song wasn't that appealing. Not sure that image would have fit JSM as well glad she left the agency.

Somi is not an idiot, JYP most probably told her that she wouldn't debut with ITZY and had no plans to debut a solo'ist... so she left... she had no choice regardless

LOL yes ofc Somi is not an idiot, and so is JYP. Somi is a treasure wherever she is. She already got popularity, fans, and she's also a multitalent. It's impossible if JYP got no plans for her.


I personally think that JYP told Somi to join ITZY, but she can't do any solo project afterwards. You must already know how TWICE works as a group. JYP clearly learned from his mistake with Miss A by letting Suzy take a lot of the highlights, and now he isn't making anyone in TWICE work in any solo project. Someone like Somi who's already building her name even before debut must be craving for more instead of being pressed in such condition. Yes it's greedy, but this way Somi can do a lot of things she likes and i think this is what she want.

erhh... so you are saying JYP doesn't want her to go solo or in a group? That is a bit ridiculous right. I mean what else is there? Most probably is due to contract talk, my guess is JSM is popular enough so she wanted a better contract than the rest of the group. From what I see, it is always contract talk which breaks up a group, even popular veteran groups disbanded because it just doesn't make sense to grant them a better contract when company can just debut a cheap rookie group.

I think you got it dead right,i believe she left because she knew she wouldn't be in the new group and probably thought she never would if not this time...

Itzy is no joke. Holly shit! they had 14Million youtube views first day and blew that apart on the 2nd day. I'm shocked. I'm still warming up to the group but they are a force clearly!

I honestly don’t think JYP is THAT stupid to let her go unless she absolutely wants to. He gives his artists space. He gave Suzy space to let her think about renewing the contract; he supported Sunmi when she chose to go to another agency. I think Somi just wanted something different than what JYP had in mind, so they ended things. It’s as simple as that.

I hear you ; Age 17 is NOT the AGE 37 of current BROWN EYED GIRLS members (only 3 members ; GA-IN is Age 31). But still, JEON SOMI's public visibility is DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY from *two years ago* when she finished up with IOI Group. IOI Group was (is?) LEGEND, and SOMI was the 'Center Position' of it. And yet, NO DEBUT so far. Meanwhile, sadly, SOMI is 'eating dust' from IOI Group member and now SOLO success CHUNG HA.

I'm sure Somi would have debuted with ITZY but I think she might have wanted to be a solo artist so she chose this new contract with YG

We will have to see in the end who made the right decision.., JSM if she becomes a success at YG or NOT or JYPE if the lost of JSM will affect their revenue and popularity or NOT ????

When JEON SOMI did NOT get to be a member of TWICE Group ; was a fairly big 'turning point' for her with JYPe Agency. I am NOT sure that JYP (himself) wanted ITZY Group to be perceived as 'JEON SOMI and the other 5 DWARFS' (or like that). And at one point, after IOI Group, JEON SOMI had measured *visibility* with the S.K PUBIC that was EQUAL to that of SUZY (Miss A). In other words, CUBE Agency did PLAN it that 4MINUTE Group would *feature* HYUNA as the LEAD MEMBER of it at DEBUT. NOT clear to me that JYP (himself) wanted a '4MINUTE Group' situation (SOMI as LEAD) with ITZY Group.

If Chaeyeon waited a bit like her sister she would've been in this group. Except now she is in IZONE which is great but for her future I don't think WM will make it.. Even the IOI girls who were way more popular are still flopping bad.. Itzy cannot flop to that extent.

She left JYPE because management told them they wouldn't debut both sisters in the same group.

It kind of came to my mind recently that after 2.5 years she'll probably have to go the Chungha, solo route if the current girls of WM debut before her IZONE contract is over. And if they don't want a Chaeyeon and friends thing like the IOI members. I start to think that more because since WM girl trainees videos are floating around already and they are not little girls. They look like mature girls ready to debut already and there's a lot of them too. Just a theory though. Might be too early to say so yet.

she left cuz she didn't want a contract like other members.

She is extra greedy for money.

Now that gets me wondering. If Somi would have debuted in ITZY, do you guys think that since she already has credentials, should her wage be bigger than the other members right away at debut or should the whole team split it evenly during the first few years like a lot of groups do?

Taking into consideration the kind of success that JYP Girl Groups have historically an even share it's still big money, she's young so later on after the usual 7 year term of contract if she wants more or do more things like acting or go solo she could negotiate or go to other agency like Sunmi did. I'd say that she rushed her decision, it doesn't matter if the reason was money or the wish of doing something different.

You are correct ; but some regard SOMI's IOI Group activity as a DEBUT. Although, (always temporary) IOI Group was NOT an 'official' Group ; so NOT an 'official' DEBUT either. But one can surely argue that JEON SOMI is NOT making the 'typical' DEBUT of a relatively UNKNOWN K-pop TRAINEE.

I particularly don't like ppl who blamed somi for leaving jyp. Something must have happened since she was in the ad of jyp audition few months prior to her departure. There was a rumor that itzy was supposed to be 7, but seeing only 5 of them debut i guess jyp decided to make itzy only 5 thats why somi left bcs she'd been patient and in the end she didn't make the final cut, for the second time. I'm glad she is where she is now, i just cant wait until i see her again on stage and on tv.
