KNK Has Left YNB Entertainment?


KNK decided to leave YNB Entertainment. Some sources say it was because they had an internal problem with their agency. A source said that YNB Entertainment used to have a management problem, so the contract with KNK was ended even though technically it still hadn’t really expired.

The exit of KNK coincided with Kim You-jin’s departure. The rest of KNK’s members agreed to continue and stay with the group and kept going. They respected Kim You-jin’s decision to leave KNK.

Well, we really hope that everything’s going fine, especially for KNK’s career and wish each member happiness!

Everything About You-jin’s Departure

KNK's You-jin

But, Kim You-jin apologized to all of his fans and all of his bandmates in KNK. Some sources said that Kim You-jin used to have a panic disorder, and had already taken some time before from KNK’s activities.

Kim You-jin had also written a letter apologizing to his fans. He posted it on the official fan site of KNK.


In the letter, Kim You-jin said that he was sorry to the Tinkerbells (KNK’s fandom name) who were already worried and wondering about him. He also said that he was really happy about being the main vocalist in KNK for the past 2 years since they first debuted.

He was really thankful and had a lot of fun times during his days as a member of KNK, he also said he apologized to all of the other members. The reason why he decided to leave was that he had some reservations about his new environment as a superstar. He was worried that his insecurities would have an impact on KNK’s career, so he decided to leave KNK and take on treatment to help himself again.

Kim You-jin also asked for the support and love for KNK from their fans and reiterated that he really respected the other members of KNK and thanked them for their support for his decision to leave KNK. Well, let’s support and pray for the best for Kim You-jin and KNK, everyone!
