Lovelyz Mijoo is moving forward after the expiry of her contract with Woollim Entertainment with huge support from fans.
Mijoo (Lee Mi-joo), who had been worried about her future after the disbandment of Lovelyz, recently saw a “miracle” in her life. Upon hearing the news, Mijoo’s fans were really happy for her and showed their support for her continuously.
The members of Lovelyz had decided to go on separate paths. Lovelyz virtually disbanded since 7 members, including Mijoo, had decided to leave their agency – Woollim Entertainment after the expiry of their exclusive contracts. It is said that only Babysoul re-signed with Woollim.
On November 1st, Woollim Entertainment stated, “The exclusive contract between our company and Lovelyz members will expire on the 16th of this month, After spending a long time discussing and considering carefully, Yoo Ji-ae, Seo Ji-soo, Lee Mi-joo, Kei, Jin, Ryu Soo-jung, and Jung Ye-in decided that they would prepare for new starts in new positions.”
The company added, “Lovelyz Babysoul renewed her contract based on her trust in our company that has been built for a long time. We want to thank the 8 members of Lovelyz for doing their best over the past 7 years and shining our company. We sincerely support the members’ new starts.”
Meanwhile, SportsTV News published an exclusive report on Mijoo’s most recent activity on November 10th.
SportsTV News said, “According to the news we gathered on November 10th, Lovelyz’s Mi-joo will sign an exclusive contract with ‘Antenna (Antenna Music)’ led by Yoo Hee-yeol. Mi-joo, whose exclusive contract with her agency Woollim Entertainment expires on November 16th, is expected to make Antenna her new home after careful consideration. Rumor has it that a positive discussion took place that Antena will support Mi-joo‘s double careers in both singing and variety shows.”
They added, “However, even after several inquiries from SportsTV News, Antenna saved their words on whether Mi-joo would sign an exclusive contract with them.“
Entertainment company Antenna Music is represented by singer Yoo Hee-yeol. Popular artists such as Peppertones, Lucidpole, Jung Jae-hyung, Sam Kim, Lee Jin-ha, and Jukjae belong to this agency. In particular, The Nation’s MC Yoo Jae-seok recently moved to this agency as well.
Mi-joo is being praised for her perfect harmony with Yoo Jae-seok on tvN’s “Six Sense 2” and MBC’s “Hangout with Yoo?”. For this reason, she was nicknamed “Yoo Jae-seok’s favorite student.“
Regarding the report, an official from Antenna told Expo News on November 10th, “It is true that we have discussed with Mi-joo regarding the exclusive contract, but it has not been confirmed so far.”
Fans welcomed the news and cheered for Mi-joo’s future.
