On October 15, FNC Entertainment posted a statement on AOA’s official fan cafe to inform fans that Youkyung is no longer with FNC Entertainment.
The agency stated, “We are informing you of AOA’s drummer Youkyung’s contract finishing with FNC. After an adequate period of time and discussion this decision was made in respect to Youkyung’s opinion.”
The statement continued, “Although her contract with the company has ended, she will continue to participate in AOA band projects as a guest member.” The agency ended with asking fans to continue to love and support Youkyung with her new start as well as AOA.
Youkyung debuted and was introduced as a member of AOA in 2012 and last promoted with AOA with “Moya” in 2013 as a member of sub-unit AOA Black.
We wish Youkyung the best of luck!
