Kim leaves YG without bearing much fruit


Katie Kim, the season-four winner of the SBS audition program “K-Pop Star,” has left her agency, Sports Seoul reported on Thursday.

After Kim won “K-Pop Star” in 2015, she joined YG Entertainment in hopes of starting her music career. The following year, she made a guest appearance on season five of “K-Pop Star” and performed as a special guest at iKON’s concert in Japan.

But aside from the gigs, Kim has not released any music, leading to her decision to leave the agency, according to Sports Seoul.

YG Entertainment currently houses many artists from “K-Pop Star,” including Lee Hi, Lee Seung-hoon of boy group Winner and the brother-sister duo AKMU.
