Jiyoung, Sweet Power Part Ways

7 hours prior to the publication of the Shukan Bunshun article on President Naomi Okada‘s sexual harassment of their talent, Sweet Power announced that they would be parting ways with former Kara member Jiyoung.

While she has seen much success through a combination of her own efforts and the power of Sweet Power Agency, Sweet Power announced that KeyEast, her Korean agency, would now be handling all her negotiations and her efforts refocused on South Korea.

While the agency uses the current pandemic and Jiyoung‘s inability to freely travel back and forth as the reason for parting ways, the sudden announcement is suspicious given that Shukan Bunshun is promising to reveal possible allegations against President Okada, some of which involve Jiyoung. More details are sure to come.
