According to the media reports on August 9th, Whee In has signed an exclusive contract with THE L1VE. THE L1VE is a label run by VIXX's Ravi after she parted ways with RBW Entertainment. Unlike Ravi's hip hop label GROOVL1N, THE L1VE plans to host and support artists of various genres such as Ailee.
Whee In has shown her credibility as a strong vocalist since her debut as a MAMAMOO member in 2014. Previously, it was reported she was in talks with Jay Park's H1GHR MUSIC; however, she will continue her music career with the support from THE L1VE.
On August 31 at midnight, Whee In took to her Instagram to personally announce that she had joined THEL1VE and will begin her new journey with the label. She wrote:
Hello, this is Whee In. I will be diligently active to show Moomoos who have waited a long time and everyone who has supported me good music and great performances through THE L1VE (@thel1ve_official) 😃💪🏻
I will continue to be active with MAMAMOO and also my solo promotions just as I do now. So, please show much support!
Also, our Moomoos whom I love~
I will put forth the effort to show you everything that you want so trust in me! 🤎
