wikipedia.com

Play M Entertainment was established in 2019 after the merger of Plan A Entertainment and Fave Entertainment. This company works as a record label and an entertainment agency under Kakao M, which was founded on April 1st, 2019.

Originally, Plan A was founded in 2011, whereas FAVE Entertainment was founded in 2012.

From A Cube Entertainment to Plan M Entertainment

The history of Plan M begins from A Cube Entertainment in 2011. LOEN Entertainment, which is now known as Kakao M, had 70 percent of the label and changed it into an independent branch then turned it into a brand new name called Plan A Entertainment.

In 2018, Plan A Entertainment had 60 percent of the agency shares in LOEN Entertainment. This led to the decision for merging the two companies, especially since founder Choi Jin-ho resigned and made Kakao M the sole owner of the shares and companies.

Kakao M made Plan A Entertainment and FAVE Entertainment become one on April 1st, 2019. FAVE Entertainment itself was found by Kakao M in 2012 under LOEN Tree which was later changed into FAVE Entertainment. Finally, after the merger, it was decided the company become Play M Entertainment.
