The remaining four members of B.A.P have officially left TS Entertainment, the agency personally confirmed in an official statement to the group’s fan café.
Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, and Jongup have all left the agency.
Here is the full translated statement of the agency:
“Hello, this is TS Entertainment.
We are writing to let you know our contracts with B.A.P members Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, and Jongup are officially over.
After their contracts with TS Entertainment concluded, we have reached an agreement with the members to go our separate ways.
We sincerely thank all of the fans, both Korean and foreign, who have shown love to Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, and Jongup.
We ask for your continuous support in the future too.
This means that all of B.A.P members have officially left their agency. The six members’ contracts concluded at different times which meant each member left at a certain time.
The first member to depart the agency was the leader Bang Yong Guk, he was followed by Zelo a couple of months ago.
The agency didn’t clarify if this means the automatic disbandment of B.A.P. Some Korean news outlets reported the news as disbandment news while others simply stated the members left the agency.
Fans, on the other hand, are happy about the news of the members’ departure from the agency.
It is unknown what will happen to B.A.P members and if they’ll carry on as a group or choose to promote as soloists from now on.
Stay tuned for updates!
It’s really a shame. I hope these young men are able to salvage the years they have given to B.A.P. As for the agency, for them the group is ex spendable and easily replaced. Korea doesn’t have artists that have the support or last as long as The Rolling Stones or for that matter someone like Cher. Fans are not so loyal. I’m waiting to see what happens when Big Bang makes its comeback. We’ See how long EXO, BTS will last. The military thing also gets in the way. At the end it’s about money ang if an agency feels a group isn’t going to make them money, it’s goodbye! B.A.P. Was truly a amazing group. The choreography, music and production value was top draw.
