Former (G)I-DLE Member Soojin is back in the news after a report alleged she’s signing with a new agency.
On May 11, YTN exclusively reported that Soojin has made the decision to sign with Big Planet Made (BPM). However, the report didn’t provide much more details.
The news came as a huge shock to fans and netizens for different reasons. The agency is a known agency that manages many famous idols.
However, soon, the agency itself denied the report firmly. In a statement to the press, BPM says the reports that claim Soojin signed with them are groundless. They have even stated they’ve never met Soojin before.
Previously, Cube Entertainment announced they have terminated their contract with Soojin back in March of this year. According to the agency, they have attempted to uncover the truth behind the bullying allegations for a while now since February of last year and police investigation has found the accusers weren’t guilty.
This announcement comes after what was alleged last year, it was alleged that Soojin has been involved in bullying controversy and among the alleged victims was the child actress Seo Shin Ae who attended the same school as her.
Soojin personally denied the news and so did Cube on many occasions, they also promised strict legal action against the netizens who spread the rumors. Actress Seo Shin Ae issued a statement sharing her side of the story, following that, the agency went radio silent and didn’t address the statement despite requesting her to speak out on the issue. In August of 2021, Soojin departed her group.
