All K-Pop fans, national or international, were shocked when the news of GOT7 leaving JYP Entertainment went viral.

A few days after GOT7’s contract with JYP Entertainment expired on the 19th of January,2021, GOT7 member Choi Youngjae signed with another agency.
While the sadness of IGOT7 was insurmountable, one can not ignore the fact that the members of GOT7 must have had to carry the burden of their fans’ dismay as well. Even though GOT7 received a lot of love, there was no guarantee that the members working as solo artists would receive the same amount of love. GOT7 Youngjae, in this condition, took on the challenge of becoming a well-established artist head-on.
‘GOT7 Youngjae’s Net worth’
Youngjae has been working hard towards a solo artist career, whether it be in acting, musicals, producing, dancing, or singing. Since he joined his new agency, Sublime Artist Agency, he has been working non-stop. This led to him receiving praise and attention from not only his old fans but also from people who didn’t follow GOT7 earlier. This helped increase the value of Youngjae as an idol and earned him a net worth of around 1 to 5 million dollars.
