In surprise move, Rain leaves agency

Singer-actor Rain has decided to leave Cube Entertainment.

The Korean Wave star posted on his personal Instagram account on Monday that “after long discussion with [Cube Entertainment CEO] Hong Seung-sung, who is like a father to me, we have decided to bring [the contract] to a successful ending.

“I want to express gratitude to Hong, who has always taken care of me like a father and has complimented and encouraged me,” he continued. “I will soon announce my future plans and which entertainment company I will go to.”

The renowned singer joined Cube Entertainment, which was established by Hong, in 2013. The celebrity has since been seen on various entertainment programs.

Hong is known to be one of the key figures who contributed to making Rain a worldwide star, as he was the one who cast Rain when he was working as a co-CEO of the celebrity’s former talent agency, JYP Entertainment.

Rain has been popular for many years, but his recent success in China has left fans wondering why he has suddenly decided to change his agency.
