We have absolute confidence that, together, we will lead the rapidly changing music industry from both in and out, alongside our prominent artists’ creations.”
On the other hand Republic Records founder and CEO Monte Lipman said, “JYP Entertainment is one of the most influential voices of our generation. With founder J.Y. Park at its helm, alongside CEO Jimmy Jeong, their passion and vision for this collaboration is incredibly exciting. Having worked with JYP for many years, I admire them as esteemed colleagues and friends.”
Republic Records now has the following Korean acts under its belt- TOMORROW X TOGETHER, TWICE, TRI.BE; as well as the newly added Stray Kids and ITZY.
