Makes sense. She wants to focus on her acting career as she is no longer an active idol and she wants to join a company that specializes in it.

All the best to her!

In case anyone is wondering who Soop Management is they are owned by Kakao M the entertainment subsidiary of internet firm Kakao, it recently appointed Kim Sung-soo the former CEO of entertainment firm CJ ENM as it's new CEO and plans to go head to head with Netflix and CJ ENM with new "short form content" particularly aimed at mobile phone users such as teenagers.


It might be a coincidence that Suzy is joining at this time but I suspect she was headhunted to join this company to spearhead its entry into this new market.
