Zico has parted ways with his agency Seven Seasons.

On November 23, it was reported that Zico’s contract with Seven Seasons has come to an end. An industry source claimed he would be parting ways with both the agency and Block B itself, with supposed plans to set up a one-man agency and return as a solo artist next year.

In response to these reports, Seven Seasons announced on their website that Zico indeed decided not to renew his contract, while the other six Block B members have renewed theirs. However, they clarified that the direction of Block B as a seven-member group has not been decided.

Their full statement reads as follows:

“Hello, this is Seven Seasons.”

“We and Zico have ultimately agreed to the end of his exclusive contract of the past five years. The other six Block B members aside from Zico have decided to renew their contracts with us, with all signing completed.

“As the time for the members to enlist is approaching, individual and unit activities will take precedence since their enlistment periods differ.

“As for Block B’s future activities, we are currently discussing it from many angles with all seven members.

“We express our gratitude towards Zico who gave it his all not only as Block B’s leader, but also as a producer, and we wish him the best of luck on his new start. We will continue to cheer him on from here on out.”
