BBGIRLS Transforms Again Youjoung Leaves But Group Pledges to Continue as Three

On April 22, BBGIRLS’ agency, Warner Music Korea, released a statement regarding the group’s future activities.

    “After much discussion about future activities, we and BBGIRLS have decided to terminate our exclusive contract on the expiration date of the contract today,” the statement reads.

    The agency also revealed Youjoung’s decision to leave the group. “After in-depth discussions, Youjoung has decided to conclude her activities as a member of BBGIRLS.”

    Warner Music Korea expressed gratitude for Youjoung’s contributions: “We sincerely thank Youjoung for her hard work as a member of BBGIRLS for a long time and will continue to support her in the future.”

    BBGIRLS to Remain Active as 3-Member Group

      Despite the changes, BBGIRLS will continue their activities. “BBGIRLS will continue to be active as a 3-member group with Minyoung, Eunji, and Yuna,” Warner Music Korea confirmed.

      Youjoung Shares Message on Social Media

      Youjoung addressed fans through her personal social media account on the same day. “My contract with Warner Music Korea has expired and I will no longer be active as a member of BBGIRLS, but as Nam Youjoung,” she wrote.

      She acknowledged the difficulty of the decision: “There are many things we promised each other, but I can’t tell you everything. It was sudden for me too, and it was something I had thought about hundreds and thousands of times before.”

      Youjoung expressed her determination for the future: “I’ve always been afraid of hurting someone and of doing things on my own, because I’m small-minded and have a lot of worries and thoughts. But today, I’m leaving my beloved past here and taking the next step in my life that I will love and cherish.”

      The message overflowed with support for her former members: “I will always sincerely support the future of BBGIRLS that Minyoung-unnie, Eunji, and Yuna will create. Finally, I’m always here. Don’t worry. I’m really, really grateful and I love you.”
