Solo artist Baek Ah Yeon's contract with JYP Entertainment has ended.

Regarding the future of both singers, JYP Entertainment added that they will "continue to sincerely cheer their bright futures on," requesting that fans continue to support them so that they can continue to be "singers that receive love and deliver happiness through their music."

Baek Ah Yeon also took to her personal Instagram account on September 16 to say a short and final farewell to the agency, sharing images of the agency building captioned with a simple 'goodbye' caption.

Meanwhile, Baek Ah Yeon debuted through JYP Entertainment on September 10, 2012 after receiving love as a finalist on the first season of 'K-Pop Star.'

One artist leaving, or even two may be seen as simply normal business practices. Once it gets to three or more leaving in a short period of time, it seems more like company restructuring. Is all of Studio J closing down? Does that mean Day6 is going too, or simply being transferred to another division? Or is it merely the solo artists leaving? What about Bernard Park?

This news, in addition to the news of JYP actor's division also splitting off, kinda makes me wonder what the heck is going on internally at JYP. Why are they restructuring so much this year? Their stock prices aren't doing too bad, compared to the other big 3, and they're making bank on their dance idol groups, so it's not a financial deficit problem. They've got plans in the works to expand to global markets, and no real company-breaking scandals. So what's going on? Was there a change in upper management policy?

I think it was what JYP entertainment should have seen coming, so little promotions for all three of them and mismanagement. Baek Ah-Yeon did well because of herself, not the company's wise decisions. It's sad, but after so many years being a K-pop fan, I know this mush that JYP is the worse when it comes to their artist, cause they just threw them away when they don't make it big on their own! Like where TWICE is now, is entirely because of themselves, we all saw what happened to Wondergirls and MissA... It's sad.
