Big Star’s Jude’s Solo Career
Debuting as a member of Big Star and under Brave Entertainment in 2012, makes for one of Jude’s achievements and succeeded in making a breakthrough in the entertainment industry. Since then he has promoted well by releasing a comeback every year with new songs and starting to gain popularity so he could participate in the KBS survival show The Unit which aired in 2017–2018. However, unfortunately, Big Star’s Jude was eliminated and unable to continue his journey to the finale of the show.
Another piece of bad news that fans had to accept came when Brave Entertainment announced on July 1sst, 2019, that the contracts of Big Star members have expired. In the statement, the agency said, “Brave Entertainment’s exclusive contract with Big Star’s Feeldog, Sunghak, and Jude ends in July.”
“Towards the expiration of the contract period, the members have continuously had discussions about their future plans. After careful consideration, it was decided that Big Star would be disbanded at the end of the 7-year contract period. However, we are still discussing future plans with members who are still serving mandatory military service.”
“We would like to thank Feeldog, Sunghak, and Jude who will be leaving the agency and we provide support for the new path that they will soon take. We also thank fans both at home and outside of Korea, who have been giving Big Star their support and love for the past 7 years. We ask that you support each Big Star member’s new start.”
