It is a sad news to hear that Hyunseung is officially leaving Beast and preparing for a new start as a solo singer. Recently there had been a lot of rumors about relationship between Beast and Hyunseung and about his career as a singer in the group, and today (April 19th), Cube Entertainment finally announced an official statement:
“Hello. This is Cube Entertainment.
We want to thank fans who love BEAST, and at the same time, deliver a news to all.
As of today, Jang Hyunseung leaves the team and Yoon Doojoon, Lee Kikwang, Yang Yoseob, Yong JunHyung, Son Dongwoon will be restructured as a 5-members group. In the future, Jang Hyunseung will concentrate on his personal music not as a Beast member, but as a solo artist.
Jang Hyunseung and the five members have differing opinions in terms of music, which had resulted in changes in the team after much consultation and discussion. After given long thoughts over the issue, we have come to an agreement to Jang Hyunseung’s leave and reforming the group.
Throughout these years, BEAST have worked their best to reach the common goals of both fans and BEAST’s. Because of this, this is not an easy decision made by the members and the company.
5-members BEAST is determined on releasing a new album in 2016 and to have domestic and international schedules soon. In the future, we hope that you would give your best cheers to BEAST and to Jang Hyunseung.”
