Krystal will be leaving SM Entertainment and is preparing to join an acting agency.

According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, Krystal has left SM Entertainment already.


Krystal Jung is preparing for a new start in a new agency, and she has left SM Entertainment, which was her home for over a decade“.

Already, the singer-actress has made several contacts with famous Korean actor management. When I heard about Krystal‘s FA, I sent a love call from a quick place and met with several agencies, but there is no company that has advanced to a specific contract.

Krystal has already been looking for a company that can focus on acting and receives support since her f(x) career. She also wanted to release a solo album during his f(x) activities, so she also plans to release the album when she meets with his new agency. As a result, f(x) breaks up with SM Entertainment except for Victoria.

SM Entertainment has yet to confirm the news.

Chrystal Soo Jung (born October 24, 1994), professionally known as Krystal or Krystal Jung, debuted in 2009 as a member of girl group f(x) and has further participated in SM Entertainment’s project group SM the Ballad. Aside from group activities, she has also acted in various television dramas such as The Heirs (2013), My Lovely Girl (2014), Prison Playbook (2017), The Bride of Habaek (2017), and Player (2018).


After three years of training, Krystal teamed up with Victoria (Song Qian), Luna (Park Sun-young), Amber (Amber Josephine Liu), and Sulli (Choi Jin-ri) to form f(x), a dance-focused K-pop group. They were introduced in a teaser put out on August 24, 2009. A week later, their debut single ‘LA chA TA’ was released. On September 5, the group was presented on MBC’s Music One. This was their first televised appearance.

In 2010, she sang the solo track ‘Melody’ for the Melody Project. She then teamed up with Thunder, a former member of the boy band MBLAQ, to host the music show ‘The M-Wave’. In the same year, she made her acting debut with a minor role in the comedy-drama ‘More Charming by the Day’.

She took part in SBS’s figure-skating show ‘Kiss & Cry’ as a contestant in 2011, eventually winning the competition. She was also cast in the third instalment of the popular sitcom ‘High Kick 3,’ portraying the character of a shallow, urban girl.

In the 2013 series ‘The Heirs’, she played the supporting role of Lee Bo-na, the spoiled but kind-heart daughter of a media executive who was previously in a relationship with the male protagonist Kim Tan (Lee Min-ho).

Krystal joined S.M. The Ballad in 2014, four years after its formation. She collaborated with TVXQ’s Changmin on the title track of the group’s second album ‘Breath’. Her duet ‘When I Was… When U Were…’ with EXO’s Chen became hugely popular, leading to a performance at the S.M. The Ballad Joint Recital on February 12.

Krystal starred alongside her sister in ‘Jessica & Krystal’, a reality show based on their private lives. It was televised on OnStyle from June to August 2014.She played the female lead for the first time in SBS’ romantic drama ‘My Lovely Girl’. She was cast as Yoo se-na, a character close to her real self. Like Krystal, Yoo is a singer and songwriter as well. She contributed the song ‘All of a Sudden’ for the series’ OST.

Krystal worked with Seo Jun-Young in the 2015 short film ‘Listen to My Song’, a project to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the fashion magazine ‘W Korea.’ In 2017, she appeared in tvN dramas ‘The Bride of Habaek’ and ‘Wise Prison Life’. She is currently shooting for the Chinese TV series ‘Graduation Season’.
