I didn't know he started his own agency. Wow. That's...brave. And I thought it was already incredibly brave of him to leave YG to pursue the kind of music that he wants to do.

I read that he formed a band but I also didn't know that he formed a one-man agency.

I mean on one hand it's a tough situation...but I know this is the kind of singer life he wanted. To be a authentic, struggling artist who releases music however he wants

I admire his dedication to his craft. However, I think it would've been smarter if he stuck it out with Winner a bit more, and then pursued the style he really wants when he and his group was more established. YG's pretty dope with stuff like that anyway. Like how Taeyang gets to do his R&B love songs, TOP has his artsy rap stuff, and GD with everything he wants to try. 😛

Agree. He should've waited a bit more. but we really don't know what's going on his head so something must have really pushed him to make this decision despite all the hard work to debut in WINNER.

Every beginnings must be hard Taehyun, but its a good thing that you followed what you truly wants and that you have that courage to do it even if it means standing alone without the members that you used to be with. Better days will come! Stay strong and FIGHTING!
