TO1’s Chi-Hoon , The 23-years old rapper, terminated the contract and left the group.
The South Korean idol and rapper, TO1’s Chi-Hoon, entered WAKEONE Entertainment by ranking eighth in a survival program called “World Klass”.
TO1’s Chi-Hoon made his debut on April 1, 2020 as a rapper with the group TO1. The group made their appearance before the public as a group by releasing a mini album Reason For Being; Benevolence. The song “Magnolia’ was their first ever title song as a group.
Fans are devastated and desperate that a member of the band had to leave after only two years since their debut.
WAKEONE Entertainment’s official announcement
“Hello, this is WAKEONE.
Due to the cancellation of the exclusive contract, TO1 member Chi Hoon has left the team at the same time he terminated the exclusive contract with us.
We apologize for causing concern to Together (fandom name) with the sudden news.
TO1 will continue to meet you with more mature music and performances.
We ask for your warm support for the TO1 members in the future.
The announcement made the fans really disappointed.
The youngest member’s hiatus before TO1’s Chi-Hoon departure
The youngest member of the group, Woonggi, has gone on an official hiatus from the group. The announcement of Woongi’s hiatus was made public on April 23rd. The company’s statement is stated as follows:
“We would like to inform you about the health status and activities of TO1 member WOONG GI. Recently, WOONG GI underwent an examination due to sudden anxiety and received a prescription from a specialist that he should refrain from excessive activities and get rest.
Accordingly, after a long discussion with WOONG GI and other TO1 members, we decided to temporarily suspend WOONG GI’s activities and focus on his treatment and recovery.
For the time being, TO1 will be promoting as a 9-member group. We will inform you about the return of member WOONG GI at a later date depending on the state of his recovery.”
The despairing announcement from WAKEONE Entertainment made the fans a little hopeless. Since the company is not really active in promoting the boys, the fandom is anxious about the future of this boyband.
