During 2014, Lee Joon and Thunder left MBLAQ, but Seung-ho, G.O, and Mir did a comeback, nevertheless, with the song “Mirror” and still hit the spotlight among their fans. But later on, after the release of the album of “Mirror”, MBLAQ members went on a hiatus, while G.O enlisted in the military service in February 2016.

Some rumors started circulating saying that G.O is frustrated with their label company’s action.

Mir also started getting busy with his own schedule as a host, rapper, and model. MBLAQ members said that they have to think about their own future.

Here is the interview statement from Mir during the rumor of the MBLAQ hiatus:

G.O. asked Mir, “Nice to meet you. Fans really miss you because you don’t post much on social media. Do you want to go back?” to which Mir answered, “Now myself, I have a lot of thoughts about what I have to do.”

“When we are in MBLAQ, we travel a lot. We will wake up and travel to other countries. Or we will sleep and when we wake up, we are in another city. I am very used to it,” Mir continued. “But when I try to do it myself it’s like ‘wait, how do I do this?’”
