Fans find hints that former NMIXX Jinni could join YG’s THE BLACK LABEL

Jinni’s surprise exit from NMIXX last year sent shockwaves through social media. Just a few days after his performance with his colleagues at the MAMA Awards 2022, JYP entertainment released a statement informing fans that Jinni “decided to terminate his contract and leave the team for personal reasons.”
With no real explanation as to why NMIXX became a group of six, theories soon began to circulate. The situation has become a hot topic among internet users, but thoughts were divided. Some believed that Jinni Emotions during his last fan sign Weeks earlier was a sign that she knew what was to come, while others wondered if Release Delays from NMIXX’s Christmas video revealed that JYP Entertainment had no idea Jinni was leaving.
Above all, the main feeling of the fans was the hope that Jinni would soon return to the stage, in whatever form. After all, she trained for an incredible six years before making her debut – hardworking fans didn’t think she would give up just months after her debut.
That’s why fans were excited to see Jinni openly his own Instagram account this week. In just one day, she has already accumulated more than a million followers on the platform. And judging by her bio, it seems that her name is still Jinni (her stage name NMIXX) and not her real name Yun Jin.
Jinni’s new Instagram account seems to be a sure sign that she won’t disappear from the public eye, but where will she go next in her career? Judging by new signs, many fans have an unexpected theory: YG entertainmentaffiliated company of THE BLACK LABEL.
At first, the “evidence” appeared to be circumstantial. Fans noticed that during THE BLACK LABEL’s recent GIRL GROUP AUDITION audition, the producer posted on YouTube teddy explains that she”just need one more member‘ for her new girl group. The eligibility criteria stipulated that the candidate had to be born in 2004 or later – the same year that Jinni was born.
Fans also shared a clip from Jinni’s final appearance in the MAMA Award, in which she hugs Somi. Somi is currently a solo artist with THE BLACK LABEL, but just prior to joining the agency, she was an intern at JYP Entertainment and rumored to be a member of ITZY.
Now there’s a new clue that has many wondering if the rumors could be true after all. Less than a day after Jinni created her Instagram account, she followed her Pierre Chun: Director of International Management, Marketing and Promotion at THE BLACK LABEL. Jinni seems to be the only idol that Peter Chun follows besides BLACKPINK members.
It happened shortly after Park Seo Hyun (a freelance stylist best known for working with red velvetIt is joie) shared Jinni’s photos in her stories. Some are also speculating that the black heart emoji Jinni used in her Instagram bio and first Instagram post could be a reference to THE BLACK LABEL.
Although Jinni may leave her band and join another label so soon after her debut, it seems like an unlikely situation, but it wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened. Indeed popular soloist HyunA left JYP Entertainment just five months after its debut wonderful girls.
According to her, her parents removed her from the band for health reasons. She has joined CUBE entertainment the following year and later debuted in 4 MINUTES. Several other JYP Entertainment artists including Park Jay, left their groups even shortly after its debut.
Of course, these new clues still aren’t hard evidence, and there’s still no real proof that Jinni joined THE BLACK LABEL. Anyway, fans are sharing their thoughts on social media.
Many are wondering if it’s possible THE BLACK LABEL bought Jinni’s existing deal or if she left JYP Entertainment for other reasons before she was spotted by the YG Entertainment label. Some think Jinni could become the company’s soloist, while others think she could debut in their next girl group.
Situation aside, many are excited about the possibility of Jinni joining BLACKLABEL, and several fans say it suits her much better than her previous label.
Others are concerned about Jinni’s treatment and potential promotions under the agency, citing Somi’s lack of music releases in recent years.
For now, only time will tell, and fans stay tuned for hints that Jinni will be making her debut soon.
