MORE VISION, the music label led by Jay Park, and singer JESSI are currently in discussions regarding the artist’s contract termination. The news came as a surprise as JESSI signed an exclusive contract with MORE VISION in April, just seven months before the revelation.

JESSI made a comeback with her song “Gum” on October 25, marking six months since she joined MORE VISION. However, controversy arose when JESSI abruptly canceled her appearance on KBS2’s ‘Music Bank’ on October 27, citing health issues. Subsequently, she also missed appearances on MBC’s ‘Show! Music Core’ and SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’ due to health problems. This departure from her previous active participation in music broadcast stages during album promotions also raised questions and added a layer of complexity to the situation.
An industry insider even suggested that the contract termination had already happened.
“JESSI and MORE VISION had disagreements during her new song promotions, and these issues persisted thereafter. Ultimately, MORE VISION decided it would be best for both parties to part ways,” they said.
As the discussions continue, the future direction for Jessi’s career and her association with MORE VISION remains uncertain. Fans and the industry will closely monitor the developments surrounding this unexpected turn of events.
For now, MORE VISION has yet to make an official statement. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
