On August 26, an official from industry reported that YG trainees are trying to leave the label and are trying to sign contracts with other labels. The members of group Treasure 13 , who were chosen through ‘YG Treasure Box’ reality show are also reported to be on the list.
A source said,”Currently, there are people who left YG and signed contracts with new labels. Also, there are trainees who are finalizing the agreement.”
Contracts of most of the trainee last for a year, but it also vary from one agency to another. Scandals surrounding the YG Entertainment is also one of the cause for trainee to leave the label. Delay of Treasure 13’s debut also seems to be cause for trainee to leave the agency.
