Nam Taehyun Shuts Down His Independent Agency And Signs With A New Agency

After 3 years, Nam Taehyun announced that he’s shut down his agency and found a new home for his band, South Club, in P&B Entertainment.

Our band (with the members’ agreement) found a new agency, and The South, which I had been running, has legally been shut down.

Although 3 years can be a short time, I learned a lot while running the company on my own. It was also a difficult and overwhelming system.

We found a new family with a set system and support, so I’m also glad that I’ll be able to focus solely on music.

P&B is a subsidiary of Soul Shop Entertainment, which is run by Kim Taewoo of g.o.d. P&B also houses celebrity chef Lee Won Il.

Nam Taehyun also announced that their upcoming album will be postponed and will instead return with a single album.

We decided to release a new single first with a brighter song that the public will like. We will continue to polish it and greet everyone with a better song ‘soon’.

He thanked his loyal fans for always believing in him in this new transition.

Thank you for always trusting and waiting for me, even though I am lacking. Thank you for showering me with an overwhelming amount of love.

안녕하세요. 사우스클럽 남태현입니다. 먼저, 발매 예정이던 다섯 곡 수록의 EP 앨범 발매가 늦어진 부분에 대하여 죄송하단 말씀드리고자 합니다. 저희 밴드(멤버 동일)에게 소속사가 생겼고 제가 운영하던 The South는 법인 해체를 하게 되었습니다. 3년이라는 비록 짧은 시간이지만 혼자 회사를 운영하며 배우기도 많이 배웠고 어떤 시스템들은 취약하여 힘들기도, 버겁기도 했습니다. 하지만 새로운 가족이 생기고 더욱 체계적인 시스템과 지원군들이 생겼기에 온전히 음악에 집중할 수 있게 되어 기쁘기도 합니다. 발매 예정이었던 기존 다섯 곡은 회사와 많은 회의를 거쳐 잠시 미뤄두기로 했습니다. 더 밝고 대중적인 곡과 함께 싱글로 앨범을 먼저 발매하기로 하였습니다. 끝까지 가다듬어 더 좋은 곡으로 ‘곧’ 찾아뵙겠습니다. 보도 자료가 나가기 전 제일 먼저 알려야겠다고 생각이 들었습니다. 항상 부족한 저 믿고 기다려주시고 과분한 사랑 주셔서 감사합니다. 남태현 올림.

Hello. This is South Club’s Nam Taehyun.

First, I want to apologize for the delay of our EP album that was scheduled to release with 5 new songs.

Our band (with the members’ agreement) found a new agency, and The South, which I had been running, has legally been shut down. Although 3 years can be a short time, I learned a lot while running the company on my own. It was also a difficult and overwhelming system. We found a new family with a set system and support, so I’m also glad that I’ll be able to focus solely on music.

After a lot of discussion with our agency, we decided to temporarily delay the release of our 5 new songs.

We decided to release a new single first with a brighter song that the public will like. We will continue to polish it and greet everyone with a better song ‘soon’.

I thought it would be best that I announce it first before the news reports got to it. Thank you for always trusting and waiting for me, even though I am lacking. Thank you for showering me with an overwhelming amount of love.
