[News][2010/08/10] Several news about SS501 future move
Group SS501’s member Park Jungmin and leader Kim Hyun Joong has had moved to new agencies.
Park Jungmin had signed on with famous drama production company Comic-Ritz and Korea’s well-known drama-movie production company Roy Media collaboration agency — COMIC-RITZ & ROYMEDIA (CNR). It is his full-time agency. CNR that’s located in Seoul, Kangnam’s Apgu-jeong is scheduled to have their agency’s opening ceremony in the 3rd week of August.
Park Jungmin’s full-time contract was signed on with Taiwanese idol drama’s famous producer Angie Chai. Angie Chai who is COMIC-RITZ’s representative was in charge of weaving the first most sensational asia F4 fever hit of the Taiwanese version ‘Boys over Flowers’ that was adapted from a Japanese manga. And because of this drama, the Taiwan F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Chou, Vanness Wu, Ken Chu) rose to asian stardom.
The CNR agency that Angie Chai invested into will be in charge of drama and overseas connections. Park Jungmin will be focusing on the chinese markets (Greater China)* in future, and so for the sake of carrying out more positive activities in the asian region, he had thus decided to sign on with Angie Chai’s CNR agency. Angie Chai know that Park Jungmin has very high fame as a member of SS501 in Taiwan and also in China, in Asia etc too, so she had decided to sign him on at firsthand.

Boy group SS501’s leader KimHyunJoong had moved in June, and now, member Park Jungmin is also leaving ex-agency DSP media, which lead to massive concern over SS501’s future activities.
Park Jungmin left his piece on 10 August on SS501’s DSP webpage titled ‘This is Jungmin’ and talked about his recency. Because he had previously made a promise with fans to let them know whenever he’s signed on to any agency, he decided to leave an entry on the homepage.
Park Jungmin introduced his new agency with ‘From now on, I will be moving forth with the name Park Jungmin from/in SS501’.
Park Jungmin revealed, “The agency I’ll be working alongside is CNR MEDIA, which is comprised by Taiwan’s COMIC-RITZ and Korea’s ROY MEDIA. Though very worried and anxious, please give much of your support to this Jungmin who will be taking his first brand new step forward. Will work harder and develop better in future too”.
Prior to Jungmin, SS501’s leader Kim HyunJoong had already moved to hanryu star Bae Yongjun’s agency company — Keyeast the last June 29.
On this day (10th), according to a related personnel, now that Park Jungmin and Kim Hyunjoong have moved to a new agency, the remaining 3 members Kim Hyungjun, Kim Kyujong, Heo Youngsaeng are all looking for new agencies too. Up until now, because they’re still looking for new agencies, seeing how Park Jungmin and Kim Hyunjoong had individually signed on to new companies gave them more strength in doing so. Of course, a DSP media’s personnel mentioned too, “Though SS501 members are looking for new companies, they do not want SS501 to disband. They also said, in future when they are going to work as ‘SS501’, they will be under DSP media”, adding on.
However, because two members have went in to new companies, and with 3 looking for new nests, it will not be possible to work as SS501 for the time being.
With 2 moving into new agencies, there is massive concern over the remaining 3 members’ moves.
According to a related personnel, 3 of them — KimKyujong, HeoYoungsaeng, KimHyungjun — are searching for new agency companies. Amongst these 3, Kim KyuJong and Heo YoungSaeng are said to be in midst of discussion of a contract with famous female singer L’s agency. Whilst for Kim HyungJun, he is said to be looking for a another different agency company from KimKyuJong and Heo YoungSaeng.
Though all of them are dispersed in different places, they do not wish to let go of SS501.
Including Kim HyunJoong and Park Jungmin, Heo Youngsaeng, Kim Kyujong, Kim Hyungjun all wish to persist as SS501 rather than any disbandment, which has common sentiments as surrounding personnel, too.
For the time being, SS501 will not carry out activities together, but in future, they will most probably be like Shinhwa; ‘separate yet together’.
But because they are not in the same agency to do group activities together, fans found it hard to anticipate much and are inevitably little sad.

According to CNR media on the 10th, “Park Jungmin signed on to us because he wants to widen his acitivities in the asian region, of course inclusive of domestically (korea). In future, he will be aiming to attain a firm position in asia as a multi-entertainer. Also, Jungmin will be positively and eagerly participating in any thing related to SS501 as SS501’s Jungmin, and so with that, SS501 activities will be his first and foremost priority in anything”. Though having said that, for now to see, the name ‘SS501’ belongs to DSP Media, since each member are moving into new agencies, so when they carry out work in that agency, it isn’t very likely that they could use the name SS501, so it seems like only lip-service is performed…
A personnel from SS501’s leader Kim HyunJoong who have moved to agency KEYEAST expressed that HyunJoong’s relationship with the other members is good, and in future too, it will be possible to carry out music activities as SS501 together”, he also stated their stand that Hyunjoong did not move out of/leave SS501 at all. But with Park Jungmin’s situation now, it doesn’t seem so likely. With that the case, in order that both of them will not be responsible for any form of rumoured ‘disbandment’, all such information are going through only from each’s agency representatives.
-2nd last paragraph ommitted, talks about unlikely and unkind situations-
While on the other hand, with Kim HyunJoong and Park Jungmin having released official statement about their recruitment into new agencies, remaining members Heo YoungSaeng, Kim KyuJong and Kim HyungJun are receiving massive concern over their future moves. It was said that CNR Media has been in contact with Heo YoungSaeng, KimKyuJong and Kim HyungJun too.
