Former MOMOLAND member and singer Nancy has found a new agency
According to OSEN’s report on the 21st, Nancy has signed an exclusive contract with ATOC and announced a fresh start.
ATOC is also the new agency for Jinni, a former member of NMIXX. They changed their company name from United Artist Production (UAP) to ATOC and announced that they will specialize in artist recruitment, management, and rookie development, aiming to increase the company’s value and growth.
After changing their name to ATOC, Nancy is the first artist they have signed. Nancy debuted in November 2016 as a member of the girl group MOMOLAND. Prior to MOMOLAND’s debut, she gained recognition through variety shows like “Mak Irae Show” and “Yuzasik Sangpalsa,” and she debuted as a member of MOMOLAND through the survival show “Finding MOMOLAND.”
Nancy has been known as the center of MOMOLAND since her debut. She also won a total of 11 music show first-place trophies during her time working with the group. In addition to this, she received various awards such as the K-POP Singer Award at the 25th Republic of Korea Culture and Entertainment Awards in 2017, the Grand Prize at the 2018 Soribada Awards, the 1theK Performance Award at the 2018 Melon Music Awards, and the 2018 MAMA Discovery of the Year, among others.
MOMOLAND, which gained attention as a third-generation girl group, disappeared from the scene when their exclusive contract with their agency ended on January 27th. Nancy also left her previous agency and signed an exclusive contract with ATOC, starting her second entertainment career.
Meanwhile, Nancy is currently meeting with audiences through the musical “The Show! Shinra Hada.” “The Show! Shinra Hada” is a time-slip production that seamlessly blends the traditional beauty of the Silla Dynasty with modern and trendy culture. It was selected as a recipient of the “2023 Silla Culture Foundation Creative Musical Support Project” sponsored by the Gyeongbuk Cultural and Tourism Corporation, and Nancy plays the role of Princess Seungman.
