BTS has decided to remain loyal to its current management agency Big Hit Entertainment by renewing its contract with them.
On October 18, Big Hit Entertainment announced that the contract with BTS has been extended for seven more years via email to employees and stockholders of the company.The members of BTS have spent years training under Big Hit Entertainment, and made debut in June 2013 under the company.
There is still about a year until the end of the contract between the two parties, but it seems their strong relationship as well as mutual trust have acted as two primary factors for them to settle down their contract issue in advance.Actually, it is not an exaggeration to say that Big Hit Entertainment has played a key role behind BTS' current worldwide success.
As BTS is the only group Big Hit Entertainment manages, they have been giving their full support to BTS in anything and everything needed for its music, and producing various online content in order to build and maintain a large fan base across the globe. In the email, Big Hit Entertainment said, "We have reached a mutual agreement to renew the contract after carefully discussing the matter with all seven members of BTS."
They continued, "We believe top stars should receive the best kind of treatment. At the moment, there are just over 100 people at the company working strictly for BTS. We will do our best to strength this team to provide the best support to BTS in the future."
BTS also made a comment, "Bang Si-hyuk (the head of Big Hit Entertainment) has guided us through the path in our career and music. He has also taught us on how one should see the world. We respect him from the bottom of our hearts."
BTS added, "With the help of Big Hit Entertainment, we will keep working hard to show a better version of ourselves to our fans."
Meanwhile, BTS is scheduled to wrap up the European leg of its world tour 'LOVE YOURSELF' on October 20 in Paris, France, and will be heading to Japan in November to continue its tour.
