Members Hui and Daeil have made a shock departure from boy band, 24K, and their agencies’ CEO has addressed the news with some crazy allegations!
Choeun Entertainment’s CEO posted the following message on the groups’ official fan café; not only does the message discuss the departures, it also addresses member Song Oh’s military service leave.
CHOEUN CEO MESSAGE
“How are you doing?
I am Choeun Entertainment CEO.
First of all, I would like to say ‘Thank you’ to all 24U who are supporting 24K on JTBC program <Mixnine>.
Today I would like to make a sincere statement about the problem you all are interested about for a long time. Today’s statement is about Hui, Deail and Song Oh.
Starting from the conclusion I need to announce that member Hui is no longer a member of 24K. Starting from the November 2016 Hui got some private problems in China and got some time dealing with those problems. On the 7th of July 2017, 24K was scheduled to appear on KBS “Music Bank” but it appeared that Hui left Korea on the 6th of July around 9PM KST. He sent only one message stating: “I just arrived in China and will not to be a part of 24K anymore”. There was no discussion about the problem he got and everyone was frustrated about him leaving one day before the last music show. But we had no other choice but to make a performance in 6.
During last few months we tried hard to get to Hui via all possible ways but unfortunately, we had no response. We got to know about his personal promotion in China via his SNS. This situation made such a mess for our company and fans that we made a decision to not be connected with Liang Hui and do not work with him anymore.
This is nothing but an act of betrayal to the company and fans that were supporting and taking care of him all this time. He forgets about all responsibility that public figure should take and has no right to be an artist anymore.
Deail. Talking about this person I need to consider his personal promotion now as a betrayal as well. He left his team without warning anyone.
Regarding Song Oh. The decision about him joining the group again will be made after completing his military service and a complete recovery of his shoulder. Right now he is in the military and we can only wait for the decision that will be made later.
From now on Choeun Entertainment will do everything to improve and will never let our fans or members to be betrayed. We will not let anyone play with your feelings.
That is why we are not able to work with people that forget what responsibility is. We hope you can continue to support us.
Choeun Entertainment and 24K members will trust only to our fans and promise to come back as a better team. I believe we face these difficulties in order to obtain a valuable experience.
Please, give all your love and support to 24K during the <Mixnine>.
Whatever really happened, we wish Hui and Daeil good luck in the future and will keep you updated as more news comes.
