SS501's Park Jung-min denies signing with Sony Records

SS501 member Park Jung-min has denied recent rumors that he had signed with Taiwan's Sony Records.

Park posted a message on his official website on Saturday, saying "I have not signed with any agency as of yet. There have been offers from several places but I have not yet given my [final] answer. I have only responded that I will talk it over with the members."

He further explained that the group, whose contract with agency DSP Media expired on June 8, had received offers from major agencies in Korea, including DSP Media, as well as overseas where all the members would collectively be signed. But none of the offers fell through, Park added.

Park ended the message by saying, "DSP Media is taking care of everything until we sign with an agency. I will make the official announcement when we sign a contract."

Boy band SS501 has been one of the most successful K-pops acts in Asia since their debut in 2005 with single "Warning."

They topped various music charts with their second mini-album "Rebirth" last October and recently released the latest record "DESTINATION," their final album under DSP Media.

The future activities of the group has been hanging in the air since it being reported last week that the band's leader Kim Hyun-joong had individually signed with Bae Yong-joon's agency KEYEAST.
