JYP Entertainment confirms that Jae Park has left the company as well as his group, DAY6. After his debut with DAY6 back in 2015, the 29-year-old’s contract was officially terminated on December 31, 2021. Initially, Jae took to Twitter to make the announcement that he would be taking a break from DAY6 activities for now and that he has plans to return as a grown Jae. A few hours after his announcement, JYP Entertainment released their statement on the matter. Take a look at both Jae’s and JYPE’s statements down below:
“Hello, My Day [fandom name]. I am sincerely grateful for all of you who have been together with DAY6 and I. For the past six years, I have been really happy, and made memories that will last forever in my heart. I’ve had a lot of thoughts and put in a lot of work, but I am still lacking in too many areas for me to stay where I am now. After discussions with the agency, I am sorry to tell you that I have arrived at the decision to take a break from DAY6 activities for now. I will cherish the memories of sweating and running together, crying and rejoicing together, from the past six years, and return having grown! This has been DAY6’s Jae. Thank you.”
JYP Entertainment’s statement:
“Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
First of all, we sincerely apologize for causing concern with sudden news to My Day, who shows much support for DAY6.
Jae, who has been a member of DAY6 until now, left the team as of December 31, 2021, and his contract was terminated. We exchanged deep conversations with Jae for a long time, and following careful discussion, we decided to respect the artist’s opinion and conclude our exclusive contract.
Although our relationship with Jae has come to an end, JYP Entertainment will also cheer on Jae’s future activities with his new start.
We promise to continue full support and efforts for DAY6’s activities, and we ask for continuous love and support from My Day.
We wish Jae and DAY6 all the best on both of their future endeavors!
