It has been three days since TS Entertainment announced that the leader of B.A.P Bang Yong Guk won’t be renewing his contract with his agency, thus he officially departed from his group B.A.P.
To his official Instagram account, he shared a handwritten letter. Here is the translation:
“A letter written at the dawn when the moon was especially beautiful.
First, I’d like to bow my head in apology for having delivered such regretful news to man BABYs who have loved and care for B.A.P until now. I am accepting all of your feelings with heavy responsibility.
That’s how important and precious B.A.P members are to me, please understand my meaning.
It’s difficult to put in words just how much strength B.A.P members and BABYs have given me from debut until now.
Looking back, I think that I was someone very small and lacking in many ways, and I feel that I owe a huge debt to the B.A.P members and the fans who made me a small person grow and become an admirable artist.
I will engrave the gratitude I have for you deep in my heart and never forget it. Thank you for giving me far more love, support and encouragement than I deserved.
Please continue to look after B.A.P members whom I care about more than anything else in the world, in the future.
And wherever I am, I will always continue to push forward and make music as the former leader of B.A.P. Please keep an eye on me.
As always, I love and respect you.
Sincerely, Bang Yong Guk.”
The members of B.A.P will continue as a five-member group following their former leader’s departure.
Fans wish Bang Yong Guk the best in the future. We will continue to support him and keep him in our heart!
