Youngbin leaves BLANK2Y after being accused of abusing his girlfriend
BLANK2Y member Youngbin leaves the group.
On February 25, the group’s agency officially announced that the idol was leaving the group after allegations of physical abuse.
In an announcement about the group’s Fan Cafe, Keystone Entertainment states:
“Hello, this is Keystone Entertainment.
First of all, we sincerely apologize for causing concern and discomfort to fans and the public.
The agency decided earlier today to confirm all related facts following the latest allegations in an online community and it was determined that the person against whom the charges were brought was in fact Youngbin.
Accordingly, we would like to inform you about the status of Youngbin and BLANK2Y in the future.
The agency has decided that Youngbin will leave the group as of this date, and BLANK2Y will continue their promotions without Youngbin as of the planned KROSS Vol.2 performance later today.
Once again, we apologize for bringing issues related to Youngbin to the attention of fans and many others.
The agency will continue to do its best to allow BLANK2Y to show you its growth.
On the other hand, on February 25, an idol “Y” was accused by an anonymous netizen of being violent towards his girlfriend “B”.
The accused idol turned out to be Youngbin, leading the agency to make that decision.
