Talented South Korean singer turned actress Suzy (former member of Miss A, which debuted in 2010) will be leaving JYP entertainment after 9 years for SOOP Management which has surprised a lot of netizens. For those of you not familiar with SOOP Management, they are a top management agency that represents several top actors including Gong Yoo and Jeon Do-Youn.
Suzy, 24, who acts under the name Suzy Bae, and whose real name is Bae Su-ji, has been with JYP since 2010. Her first seven-year contract ended in 2017, but she then signed up for another two years.
It seems that Suzy is leaving JYP entertainment mainly a music label/agency for a management that is more focused on acting, as she has garnered a lot of attention for her acting skills and has transitioned fully from singer to actress.
Congratulation Suzy and good luck! Fighting!
