29 Jun – It was revealed that Shinhwa's member Jun Jin has decided not to renew his contract with Open World Entertainment.
Allkpop website reported that Jun Jin's representative stated, "Jun Jin's contract with Open World Entertainment ended on 24 May, and since then he has decided not to renew his contract."
The representative also added that Jun Jin is currently contemplating which agency to sign with.
Since Jang Seok-woo, the agency's CEO was charged with sexual assault and other allegations, Jun Jin has decided that it is best for him to find a new agency that will support his career, despite having been in the agency since 2008.
Meanwhile, many insiders are speculating whether the singer will be joining fellow Shinhwa member Eric's agency, Top Class Entertainment, Dong-wan and Hye-sung's agency, Live Works Company or going the other way by signing on with an entirely new agency.
