Jiho left Oh My Girl in early May this year - right after the group wrapped up promotions for their latest release, Real Love. Apparently, her contract ran out and she decided not to renew with her former agency, WM Entertainment. The rest of the Oh My Girl members did resign with WM Entertainment and are currently promoting as a six member group.
On 10 August, the agency P&Studio stated, "We signed an exclusive contract with former Oh My Girl member Jiho. Jiho starts a new leap as an actor with her new name, Gong Jiho." They added, "We will give full support to Gong Jiho so that she can develop her talent as an actor."
A bunch of new profile photos of Gong Jiho were released along with the news of her signing an exclusive contract with P&Studio. In the photos, Gong Jiho showcases a chic and urban look. Her innocent, mysterious and charming personality shines through even in black-and-white photos. She shared these photos on her personal Instagram with the caption, “New📸”. Check them out below!
P&Studio also shared the same pictures with the caption (translated in English), “[Gong JiHo]

Jiho debuted with Oh My Girl back in 2015 and was known for her visuals, clean dancing style that fit the group’s concepts, blunt but warm personality and a calm singing tone.
