DAY6 Member Jae’s, real name Park Jae Hyung, situation baffles K-Pop netizens.
A few hours before, the member announced on Twitter that he would be taking a break, simply be on hiatus, from band activities. A translated version of his post said he discussed it with the company. He promised that they’d come back with improved performances.
Here is the translated version provided by a My Day:
My Days took this news well until JYP released their official statement. Here is the translated statement by Soompi:
“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.
The released statement came hours later after the band member’s announcement, which confused My Days and other K-Pop fans. Still, they accepted this, and many netizens declared they would support the singer in his decisions and future endeavors.
