Member Hong Yoo Kyung to Leave A Pink

Sad news for A Pink fans!

It was just announced by A Cube Entertainment that member Hong Yoo Kyung will be leaving her group, A Pink, to focus on her studies.

A Cube Entertainment explained that the decision was made “by Hong Yoo Kyung and the company after much deliberation and thought, at a crossroad between the entertainment industry and studying, in consideration of Hong Yoo Kyung and A Pink’s future, and the other six members.” It continued, “We ask for encouragement and support for Hong Yoo Kyung who will be entering college this year after leaving A Pink and living her life as a normal student like her peers instead of as ‘A Pink’s Hong Yoo Kyung’.”

Meanwhile, A Pink is continuing to prepare for a comeback in June.
