Last month, Jeon So-mi who was a former member of I.O.I and “Produce 101” participant announced that she had decided to leave JYP Entertainment. The move surprised many given that she was set to make a debut with a new girl group. As such, many speculated what the singer would do next.

According to Daily Sports, Jeon expressed interest in other companies but ultimately decided to continue independently. Instead of a management company, the singer’s father Matthew Douma. Currently, he is managing her schedule with the help of Jeon’s other family members.

Until now, the exact reason why Jeon resolved to cancel her contract with JYP Entertainment. Regarding this, industry insiders said that any company that may work with the singer will have to ask for the cause.

However, whatever the rationale is behind the decision will probably not deter most companies. Jeon already has an established fanbase and demonstrated solid skills in dancing, singing, and entertainment since appearing on Mnet’s “Produce 101” and I.O.I. However, some insiders have expressed concern about her ability to honor an exclusive contract.
