Gummy shared during a recent interview withNewsen, "It has been a little over half a year since moving to a new agency. My former agency had a [particular] tendency [in the way they do things]. YG is not the type to release albums often… When good music comes out, you release an album. Artists agreed on that, and each artist had a lot of ambition to promote with good music. I also made an album at YG, which fell through about two times. After thinking about it a lot, I decided to switch agencies.”
"There was trial and error from those two times that my album didn’t work out, and I organized my thoughts. I moved to a new agency and started working on my mini-album, which was able to be released in six months.”
"I learned a lot during my time at YG. They are like family to me even now. The number of YG artists has increased a lot, and I wanted to make my music more freely and often. Fans and the public would tell me, ‘Why don’t you release an album?’ I was in a difficult situation and naturally moved [to another agency].”
"We did not go our separate ways on bad terms. [Yang Hyun Suk] CEO actually felt sorry towards me. He told me that if there is a place where I can get cared for more, then let’s do that comfortably. I think it (leaving) came about naturally."
