K-Pop Girl Group Momoland Loses Two Members - Find Out Why

The Momoland roster is switching up.

The formerly nine-member South Korean girl group, known for smash hits like “Bboom Bboom” and “Baam,” revealed on Friday (November 29) that members Taeha and Yeonwoo are leaving the group.

The group’s agency, MLD Entertainment, confirmed the news in a statement, as well as providing an update on member Daisy‘s hiatus.

“Hello, this is MLD Entertainment. We would like to make a statement regarding our performers, MOMOLAND, who are reorganized as a six-member team. Taeha and Yeonwoo, who have been with MOMOLAND as a part of the team, are about to make a new start by leaving the team today,” they said.

“Both Taeha and Yeonwoo have thought deeply about their career path for a long time and upon having enough time for their thoughts, have had much conversation with the company. First of all, following careful consideration and respecting her own opinion as a top priority, Taeha is going to make a new start at a new place with her exclusive contract terminated. Thus, the company will fully support and encourage her new start as much as possible. While Yeonwoo has had deep affection for her MOMOLAND activities, she has decided that continuing together with her actress activities would be too much strain for both her team and herself so to leave the team and concentrate on her career as our actress [under MLD Entertainment],” they went on to say.

“Finally, regarding Daisy, since we are still going through a mutual discussion we will inform you as soon as we reach an agreement. This decision was carefully made after much conversation and discussion between the performers and the company, so we would like to request you to restrain from making unnecessary speculations and causing misunderstandings. We would like to ask you for warm encouragement and support for all the members who would go on their new path from now on.”

K-Pop's Jung Joon-Young & Choi Jong-Hoon Sentenced to Prison for Rape

Jung Joon-Young and Choi Jong-Hoon are going to jail.

The 30-year-old South Korean singer-songwriter and the 29-year-old former F.T. Island member were sentenced to prison on Friday (November 29) for raping women who were too drunk to consent to sex, the New York Times reported.

Jung Joon-young was sentenced to six years in prison by the Seoul Central District Court, and was also convicted of making and sharing videos of the assaults.

Choi Jong-hoon was sentenced to five years.

“The accused perpetrated sexual crimes against multiple women, degrading women and treating them as mere tools of sexual pleasure. It’s hard to fathom the pain the victims must have​ suffered,” Judge Kang Seong-soo ruled.

Both men reportedly “broke into tears as they were escorted back to jail after the sentencing.”
