Just in: JYP Entertainment has announced that GOT7 will part ways with the agency.

In a statement released on January 11, the entertainment label has confirmed reports about the group's departure: "Hello. This is JYP Entertainment. JYP has held thorough discussions with the GOT7 members ahead of the expiration of their exclusive contract on January 19. As a result, both sides have agreed not to renew the contract while hoping for a fresh future. GOT7 has performed exceptionally as a global idol group that represents K-pop since their debut on January 16, 2014. We genuinely thank GOT7 for being part of the growth of K-pop and JYP, as well as IGOT7 and all fans who have been a source of motivation to GOT7’s activities with their endless support since their debut. Our official relationship ends here, but JYP will sincerely cheer on the new future that the GOT7 members will advance into."

Dispatch previously reported that GOT7's performance in the 35th Golden Disc Awards (GDA) on January 10 was going to be their last activity as a group. "The GOT7 members are very close. They agreed on staying together, but they disagreed on the choice of their agency. After multiple discussions with the company, they decided to part ways."  

Dispatch also shared a statement about GOT7's friendship from someone close to the group: “The members care a lot about GOT7. Though they will each promote separately, they agreed to make time when GOT7 reunites." You guys: It's seven or never. Periodt.
