D-CRUNCH's Minhyuk Leaves The Group + Dylan Temporarily Halts Activities

D-CRUNCH has announced that Minhyuk will be leaving the group and Dylan will be going on a temporary hiatus.

On November 9, D-CRUNCH’s agency AI GRAND KOREA officially released two separate statements: one announcing Minhyuk’s departure and one announcing that Dylan would temporarily be halting all activities due to worsening symptoms of psychological anxiety.

The agency’s first statement regarding Dylan is as follows:

Hello, this is AI GRAND KOREA.

We have unfortunate news to convey to the fans who support our artist D-CRUNCH.

Starting last month, D-CRUNCH member Dylan has been seeing a doctor and receiving treatment due to the deterioration of his health and frequent symptoms of mental anxiety.

However, Dylan’s symptoms of mental anxiety recently became even worse, and it was decided that he needed plenty of rest and stability. Therefore, after careful discussion, we have decided that he will temporarily be halting all activities and will focus on his treatment while taking a break.

We made this decision because our agency considers our artists’ health our top priority, so we ask for fans’ generous understanding, and we will make another announcement about [Dylan’s] future schedule and the status of his recovery.

We will do our utmost to help Dylan quickly recover his health, and we ask that you show a lot of support for Dylan, who is focusing on his recovery, and D-CRUNCH as well.

Our agency promises to continue to do our utmost for the health and safety of our artists and staff.

We apologize for giving the fans, who are always supporting D-CRUNCH, cause for concern through this sudden news, and we will try our best so that Dylan can recover his health.

Thank you.

Meanwhile, the agency’s full statement regarding Minhyuk’s departure is as follows:


First, we apologize to all of the DIANA [D-CRUNCH’s fandom] both within Korea and abroad who care for D-CRUNCH as we inform you of this unfortunate news.

Although we have held many conversations and discussions with D-CRUNCH member Minhyuk, who is an artist under AIG KOREA, we have determined after plenty of discussion that at the moment, it would be difficult for Minhyuk to continue his promotions as a member of D-CRUNCH in the future.
As we were unable to come to an agreement, Minhyuk will be leaving the group D-CRUNCH. We truly feel apologetic for having to convey this news to the fans both within Korea and abroad who are always helping and supporting D-CRUNCH.

We ask that you give Minhyuk a lot of encouragement and support as he walks a new path from now on.

2021, a year in which promotions were heavily disrupted by COVID-19, is also winding to a close. Many unfortunate and difficult things happened during this year, but there were also so many reasons to be thankful to DIANA, who always remain by [D-CRUNCH]’s side.

We will continue to do our utmost in the future so that D-CRUNCH can show even more growth, improvement, and hard work.

We wish Minhyuk all the best in his future endeavors, and we wish Dylan a speedy and full recovery!
