KNK Parts Ways With Agency + Youjin Leaves Group
KNK has left YNB Entertainment.
According to industry representatives on September 10, the group recently terminated their contracts due to internal issues with the agency.
One representative commented, “YNB has been experiencing difficulties due to management problems, so the contracts with KNK have been terminated although there is time left until they expire.”
The representative continued, “Kim Youjin, who is not in good health, has decided to leave the group after discussion. The other members have strong will to promote, so they have agreed to continue on with the team.”
A source from YNB Entertainment confirmed the reports and added that KNK is now searching for a new agency.
Earlier in the year, Youjin took a break from activities due to panic disorder.
KNK debuted in March 2016 with “Knock.” Members Seungjun, Inseong, and Heejun participated in JTBC audition program “MIXNINE.”
