Hui’s Departure From the Group
Even though he got his name to be known as a member of 24K, unfortunately, in November 2017, Hui had t leave the band. According to soompi.com, his former agency, Choeun Entertainment said that it was “an act of betrayal” from Hui.
Choeun Entertainment posted a message on the official 24K fan cafe that said Hui suddenly left the group and went back to China a day before the group was supposed to appear on the Korean Music Show Music Bank.
From soompi.com and allkpop.com, the CEO of Choeun Entertainment made the following statement:
“How are you doing? I am Choeun Entertainment’s CEO.”
“First of all, I would like to say ‘Thank you’ to all 24U who are supporting 24K on JTBC program Mix Nine.”
“Today, I would like to make a sincere statement about the problem you all are interested in for a long time. Today’s statement is about Hui, Deail, and Songoh.”
“Starting from the conclusion, I need to announce that member Hui is no longer a member of 24K. Starting from November 2016, Hui got some private problems in China and got some time dealing with those problems. On the 7th of July 2017, 24K was scheduled to appear on KBS’ Music Bank but it appeared that Hui left Korea on the 6th of July around 9 PM KST. He sent only one message stating, ‘I just arrived in China and not going to be a part of 24K anymore.’ There was no discussion about the problem he got and everyone was frustrated about him leaving one day before the last music show. But we had no other choice but to make a performance in 6.”
“During the last few months we tried hard to get to Hui via all possible ways but unfortunately, we had no response. We got to know about his personal promotion in China via his SNS. This situation made such a mess for our company and fans that we made the decision to cut the connection with Liang Hui and not work with him anymore.”
“This is nothing but an act of betrayal to the company and fans who were supporting and taking care of him all this time. He forgets about all responsibility that public figures should take and has no right to be an artist anymore.”
“Also for Daeil, a final decision will be made soon as he, too, was having personal promotions and engaged in an act of betrayal. He left his team without warning anyone.”
“Regarding Songoh, the decision about him joining the group again will be made after he completes his military service and completely recovers his shoulder. Right now he is in the military and we can only wait for the decision that will be made later.”
“From now on, Choeun Entertainment will do everything to improve and will never let our fans or members to be betrayed. We will not let anyone play with your feelings.”
“That is why we are not able to work with people that forget what responsibility is. We hope you can support us.”
“Choeun Entertainment and 24K members will trust only in our fans and promise to come back as a better team. I believe we face these difficulties in order to obtain valuable experience.”
“Please, give all your love and support to 24K during the Mix Nine.”
