Mark revealed that there are many restrictions in an agency, and limits on how to express oneself.

There’s an image you have to live up to. It’s really hard to like, express yourself, and do what you want to do, just because you also have the agency or the label telling you what you should and shouldn’t be doing.

—Mark

He also shared that being in that sort of environment was “pretty suffocating” for him, but now that his contract with JYP Entertainment has ended, Mark now feels “super free.
