TREASURE will be promoting as a 10-member group after their agency, YG Entertainment, announces the departure of Bang Ye Dam’s and Mashiho and the termination of their contract.

The fate of Bang Ye Dam’s and Mashiho in the group has been an ongoing topic of discussion recently with YG first shocking fans with a statement announcing Bang Ye Dam’s and Mashiho’s temporary hiatus. Back then, YG said Bang Yedam will be taking a hiatus to focus on his potential as a producer, he will be focusing on studying music for the time being. Mashiho, who is currently resting in Japan, will also be going on a hiatus due to health reasons. He will spend more time with his family.

Later in July, YG returned with a new statement to also say Bang Ye Dam and Mashiho will not participate in the group’s summer comeback or tour citing similar reasons. Fans are still not aware of what exactly transpired that led to this but many hoped the members would return soon.

Fast forward to today, On November 8, YG has released an official statement to announce both members departure from the group.

Read their statement below!

“Hello, this is YG Entertainment.

First of all, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the TREASURE MAKERS for all the support and love towards TREASURE.
Today, we have an important announcement about TREASURE’s future activities.

Going forward, TREASURE transforms into a 10-member group – consisting of Choi Hyun suk, Jihoon, Yoshi, Junkyu, Yoon Jae hyuk, Asahi, Doyoung, Haruto, Park Jeong woo, and So Jung hwan.
After a long and careful discussion with Mashiho and Bang Ye dam was mutually agreed to conclude the contracts between the two and YG Entertainment.

We have reached such agreement so that Mashiho could have enough time to recover from his health condition, and Bang Ye dam could pursue his career as a producer.

Knowing that all of TREASURE’s fans have been waiting for Mashiho and Bang Ye dam, we are very sad about their departure as they have been with TREASURE from the beginning. We ask for your continuing support for Mashiho and Bang Ye dam.

YG Entertainment will put its best efforts in communicating with TREASURE MAKERS and supporting TREASURE’s future activities.
Thank you so much.”

TREASURE are currently preparing for their solo concert in Seoul to be held on November 12 and 13.

Following the news, fans are expressing their shock and frustration with the agency as many fail to understand why two immensely talented members who trained for many years would depart the group like that.

  1. This too much, the boys have trained and work so hard to debut and have been in the group 2 years already and now they’re leaving the group, what is this? First was Jiyoon from Weekly, Garam from Le Sserafim, Ella and Satbyeol from Pixy. I don’t know what is wrong with YG Entertainment, they’re talented artists, the agency is wasting they’re talents. However, I wish them the best and a successful career
