B.A.P Fans were in for a bitter surprise when they learned that this member is auditioning to the new AOMG show “Signhere.” The show features five judges Jay Park, Simon Dominic, Gray, Code Kunst, and Woo Won Jae.
On August 22 episode premiere, this B.A.P member showed up. It was during the first round of evaluation and the last segment of the first episode B.A.P’s Jongup showed up shocking the judges.
Jay Park asked him if he’s a B.A.P member and he confirmed it. Simon Dominic then asked him why he’s applying on his own, he answered hesitantly,
“I have to prepare to go solo, to be honest, and I needed a new agency.”
Jay Park then asked him if his group disbanded, he replied with,
“Yes, it’s been about half a year.”
The show revealed that his full story will air in next week’s episode.
For him to go up through the show the judges and 50 hiphop listeners must determine if he passes or fails.
B.A.P debuted in 2012, the group was active until February this year when it was announced that all the members left choosing not to renew their contracts. Fans thought that Jongup would’ve been able to find an agency; they were shocked to learn that the idol hasn’t been contacted by an agency yet.
What do you think of this?
My personal thoughts
My heart just broke into a million pieces, I just can’t!
I am not even a B.A.P fan, I don’t like their style of music but respect them as artists and it pains me to see this.
It must’ve been a very tough decision, he used to be a popular idol from a rising boy group, he worked so hard and yet he couldn’t find an agency, my heart hurts for him. This industry is so difficult and so unfair.
I hope that he advances to the next stage of his career through this show, he was born in 1995, this means he still has time left on his hand to do more music before he must enlist.
He’s still young, not as young as all the new idols but young enough to get another chance in this industry. I can’t wait for next week’s episode, I hope he advances and finds success with AOMG.
