    Article: [Exclusive] Jo Kwon parts ways with JYP after 16 years... "All of 2AM has left JYP"

    1. [+5,694, -143] Feels like both 2AM and 2PM are quietly disappearing for some reason ㅜ

    2. [+3,003, -67] Everyone's leaving.. ㅠㅠ I miss Kkap Kwon and 2AM

    3. [+2,384, -58] Hopefully 2AM gets back together to put out more songs some day

    4. [+1,573, -45] Wherever he chooses to go... Kkap Kwon fighting!!

    5. [+496, -36] Working with Park Jin Young is great in the beginning but I noticed a trend where he drops interest and attention in his artists after a while and they all end up moving to different agencies

    6. [+375, -4] Spent 7 years as a trainee, 9 years as a singer... spent 16 years working and still only 28 years old ㅎㅎ

    7. [+426, -43] Jo Kwon's not getting the treatment I expected JYP to give him... I thought they'd at least give him a director position like Kang Ta in SM...

    8. [+304, -17] JYP seems to just let people go once they reach a certain age... they're a business after all

    1. [+314, -38] JYP in particular has really low contract renewal rates

    2. [+266, -23] Probably because JYP lets their artists do what they want

    3. [+246, -19] JYP's the type of company to easily let you go so you can find a new path for your career if you're not bringing them in any money

    4. [+27, -0] 16 years is a long time, a company transfer sounds plausible in this situation

    5. [+26, -0] JYP looks like they have their hands full with Twice and Suzy these days anyway

    6. [+17, -0] 2AM and 2PM... they were so hot and popular when they first debuted but this is how they ended up...

    7. [+14, -2] So what if JYP has low renewal rates? They're way cleaner than SM and YG ㅋㅋ

    8. [+13, -6] JYP's a great agency but they seem to lack the infrastructure for better management. Most of their artists end up moving to agencies that can care for them better.

    This legit surprises me. JYP has been very understanding and supportive of Jokwon being who he is. I would be very surprised if he could find any other company, period, much less a big company like JYP is, that supports him in the same way.

    Playing 2AM's songs right now.

    Seriously I thought he would be the next CEO of the company... but he left. I wish him well.

    Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking lol. Besides, he was on broadway this whole time putting in shows right? And he was still doing appearances, so it's not like he was being neglected

    But whatever I guess

    The company is so different than the one I knew when I discovered kpop. All their iconic groups are disbanded or on hiatus, and even JoKwon has given up. It's like the whole second a third generation has completely disappeared from the company.

    I hope he finds a wonderful company.
