Sad news from CAN Entertainment today as they have released a formal statement that informs us that member Lee U (Lee Seung Hyun) will be withdrawing from the group.
This kind of news is never easy to accept, especially when it is about a member, or a group that we love, and sometimes people think it is a hoax. Unfortunately, this time it is a sure thing, as you can see from the statement from CAN entertainment below:
“Hi everyone, this is CAN Entertainment speaking.
Once again, we would like to apologize for having to announce this news, and we will work harder to become a more developed CAN Entertainment.
First, we would like to thank all the fans who have been supporting F.cuz all this time, and we are very sorry about having to announce this bad news to all the fans. The reason for this particular notice is because we want to notify all the fans that F.cuz’s Lee U (Lee Seung Hyun) will be withdrawing from the group.
F.cuz was created based on CAN’s entertainers Kim Jin Chul (Jinon), Choi Yong Hak (KAN), Shim Ye Jun (Ye Jun), and Castle J Enterprise’s entertainer Lee Seung Hyun (Lee U). They have been through a long period of training, and finally ended their difficult, stressful yet joyful training days by debuting on January 8th, 2010, officially starting their activities under the name F.cuz.
During this period of time, not only did F.cuz work on their activities in Korea, but they also traveled to Japan and Taiwan, expanding their activities overseas. Also, they have been working extremely hard due to their wish to become better for their fans.
However, beginning this year, both sides of the management agencies have been seeing Lee U’s solo activities as well as his music preferances differently. After many discussions, they have, unfortunately, even come to discussing about withdrawing Lee U from F.cuz. Related entertainment agencies expressed that, in order for the 4 member group to continue their activities together, they could not find any solutions to this other than what they have been previously discussing about. And Lee Seung Hyun have made this very same decision after a long while of tough consideration. At the end, their management agencies decided to respect Lee U’s decision, therefore announcing the news that Lee Seung Hyun will be withdrawing from the group.
To all the fans who have been loving and caring for F.cuz until now, we would like to apologize deeply. We will hope for a new member to join F.cuz with lots of potential, and the hope for F.cuz to start fresh again. We would also hope for the fans to support the brand new F.cuz and the future of Lee Seung Hyun.”
So in the future, we may be seeing Lee U branch out as a solo artist only, and we can only pray that F.Cuz will stay strong through this difficult time and stay together as a group. As painful as it is for a group to lose a member, losing the group entirely would be a dark day.
So, let’s all continue to support F.Cuz and Lee-U and hopefully he will talk about it from his view soon.
