The duo had previously created their first label together called Leessang Company in 2011, which was dedicated solely towards Leessang’s activities and promotions. The duo will now be individually recruiting other artists, and in order to do so, they will be creating their very own individual labels! The news was announced on April 7th as Leessang Company stated, "5 years after the creation of Leessang Company, Leessang will each add their own labels under Leessang Company."
Gil’s label will be named Magic Mansion, dedicated to recruiting producers, composers, rappers, and many more across a wide variety of different markets. Gary’s label will be focusing on Gary’s solo album and his promotional campaigns.
