Zico has left his agency Seven Seasons, leaving his future with Block B up in the air.
The SoulMate rapper will be focusing on solo activities after it was confirmed he has parted ways with Seven Seasons.
The agency said: We and Zico have ultimately agreed to the end of his exclusive contract of the past five years. The other six Block B members aside from Zico have decided to renew their contracts with us, with all signing completed.
As the time for the members to enlist is approaching, individual and unit activities will take precedence since their enlistment periods differ.
As for Block Bs future activities, we are currently discussing it from many angles with all seven members.
We express our gratitude towards Zico who gave it his all not only as Block Bs leader, but also as a producer, and we wish him the best of luck on his new start. We will continue to cheer him on from here on out.
Judging by this statement, Zicos time with Block B is now over.
It is believed he is planning a solo comeback in 2019 following his King Of The Zungle tour.
The bands members Taeil, B-Bomb, Jaehyo, U-Kwon, Park Kyung and P.O have all renewed their contracts and will be resuming activities as a six-member group.
Zico previously told Metro.co.uk about his first domestic solo show in Seoul and how he doubted himself going into the gig.
The 26-year-old said: During preparations, Id doubted myself as to whether I could do it well, but from the opening to the end of the concert, I felt I was becoming the one with the audience and was especially thankful for PSY and IU [who did guest spots].
They were popular already when I debuted, so I was honored to collaborate with them. I felt like they gave me a really huge present! I was nervous but excited at the same time, and once Id finished the first concert, I felt like I successfully completed a big challenge, even though theres some regrets left.
