Youngjae is rumored to be sheltered under the Sublime Artist Agency which has housed many artists, one of whom is Song Kang Ho.
JB reportedly received an offer from a well-known hip hop label and plans to find a place that can support him becoming a soloist.
Jackson said that other GOT7 members are also preparing for their solo next year.
“JB and Yugyeom are preparing their album. Youngjae is preparing the album, and I’m preparing an English and a Chinese album.” He said.
