We would like to express sincere appreciation to iKON for being with us as YG artists. YG Entertainment will always look forward to the members' activities in diverse fields and wish the best for them in the future.
Also, we would like to deeply thank all iKONIC for accompany iKON on their journey. Please continue to send the iKON members your warm attention and support, as they are about to start a new phase of their journey. 
Thank you."

Looks like YGE is headed into a new chapter. So many artists have decided to not renew.
